On Saturday, August 30th, Roswell's Bottomless Lakes
State Park played host to the third F1 Triathlon, a unique event
consisting of a 800m swim/14K bike/4K run/14K bike/4K run. The
swim leg is in beautiful Lea Lake, and as such, is one of the few
open-water swim triathlons in New Mexico. The bike leg(s) are also
draft-legal, giving triathletes a chance to practice their
pack-riding skills. Robert Abernathy was the only SSR member to
travel to Roswell, and he finished in 2:07:33, good for
4th in his age group.
