Swim, bike and run in the Aspen Triathlon
A hearty field of 80 triathletes and duathletes participated in the annual Zoot Aspen Triathlon/Duathlon on Saturday.
Based at the Aspen Recreation Center (ARC), the athletes swam in the rec center pool, rode bikes to Maroon Bells and back and run around the golf course and school campus.
Some even rode the popular aquabikes at the pool as part of the duathlon events.
Sponsored by Aspen Parks and Recreation, the event included duathlon and team categories.
Results are available on the Aspen Parks and Recreation website at aspenrecreation.com.
