WHAT:  This first-ever Finger Lakes TRYathlon encourages people to get out and TRY a variety of activities to get involved in healthy living. Throughout the day, TRYathletes will experience and learn about healthy outdoor activity from local, seasoned professionals. For the first leg of the event, the athletes will put on their hiking shoes and venture out on a guided hike at Dryer Park in Victor with Brian Emelson of Victor Parks and Recreation. The second leg takes advantage of the water and involves kayaking or standup paddleboarding with Steve Howie of Canandaigua Sailboarding. The final event in the TRYathlon is a bicycling expedition with USA Cycling Coach and Tune Yoga for Sports owner Leslee Trzcinski. The TRYathletes will also be treated to a healthy lunch at the Canandaigua Wegmans – a leader in promoting healthy living in the Finger Lakes.
