Eppie’s Great Race

Online registration for Eppie's Great Race has already closed. But I'm still writing about it. The race, which has copyrighted its descriptor “The World's Oldest Triathlon,” turns 40 this year. I've run the race as part of Team TFO (www.teamtfo.org)—a sports nonprofit that encourages able-bodied and disabled athletes to team up at race events—for the past two years. This year, I'm not participating, but it'll be nice to be there as a spectator and cheer on my peers. Free. 8 a.m. at William B. Pond Recreation Area, 5700 Arden Way; www.eppiesgreatrace.org.
