Organizers of the third annual Fulton Triathlon are hoping to draw more area residents to participate in a morning of healthy community fun on July 9.

Event organizer Brad Hegemann said he still is looking for both more athletes to compete and more volunteers to help run the race, which features a 200 meter swim (eight lengths) at Oestreich Swimming Pool, a 10k (6.2 miles) road bike and a two mile cross country run.

“I’m a little nervous (about the number of registrants) at this point, but it’s always like this — you never know who’s going to show up,” Hegemann said, noting the triathlon has drawn approximately 30 participants each year thus far.
