Tri the Rock results announced; Aspen View Academy wins the school challenge

All you have to do is try! Hundreds of kids put on their swim suits, fastened their helmets and laced up their sneakers to give it their best try in this year’s annual Tri the Rock youth triathlon.

More than 450 young athletes participated in this year’s event! And, over $3500 was donated to area physical education programs – a portion of each entry fee went directly to the participating student’s school physical education program.

Aspen View Academy won the Tri the Rock School Challenge after a close race with Soaring Hawk and Clear Sky elementary schools. Aspen View Academy’s name will be displayed on a traveling trophy, which will be housed at the school until next year.
