Marshfield Clinic and Security Health Plan are once again co-sponsors of the Phillips Chain of Lakes Triathlon, an annual swim, bike and running event. This year’s triathlon will be held Saturday, July 13 at Elk Lake Park, off County Highway H on Elk Lake in Phillips.

The race includes a sprint triathlon with a quarter mile swim, 14 mile bike and 3.1 mile run.

“We sponsor this event annually because it fits with our efforts to improve the health and wellness of our community by encouraging physical activity,” said Marshfield Clinic Nurse Practitioner Britt Bilgrien.

People can register for the triathlon as individuals or as teams of two or three people. The entry fee — which is $60 for individuals and $120 for teams — includes a water bottle, plus give-away items from local businesses and sponsors, and a catered lunch.
