On Saturday, August 27, 2016, the beautiful trail and shoreline on the west side of Lake Almanor in Plumas County will once again be the setting for the Courage Triathlon. All proceeds from this run/bike/kayak triathlon go to Courage Worldwide, helping children that have been severely sexually abused.

Courage Worldwide is a nonprofit organization that provides a safe home for children that have been victims of sex trafficking. Across America, even in our rural communities, this horrible reality is growing and over 300,000 children annually are sold for sex. This triathlon was created to help support this wonderful organization.

With this event spearheaded by CDCR and CHP employees, all public agencies are being challenged to support this worthy cause by representing their department with a 2 or 3-person team or as a solo participant. A traveling trophy will go to the winning solo participant representing a public law enforcement or agency.

This fun event will begin at 10am at the beautiful Plumas Pines Resort with a 2.8-mile run.  Utilizing the paved Almanor Recreation Trail, participants will then bike 7.1 miles, transitioning to a 4.1-mile kayak segment at the Rocky Point South Group Campground.  Kayakers will finish the triathlon at the Plumas Pines Resort where an award ceremony will follow. As mentioned, all registrants can choose to participate as a member of a three person team or do the entire event solo. Either way, all will receive a participation medal and shirt. Participants must provide their own bike and kayak. Helmets must be worn by cyclists and a flotation vest must be worn by kayakers.

We want to thank the Plumas Pines Resort, the Bizz Running Company, PG&E, the USFS Almanor RD, and the community, for their overwhelming support and very successful participation of last year’s event. Without their continued help, this year’s event wouldn’t be possible
