      New triathlon coming to Marquette

      There is a brand new triathlon coming to Marquette's Tourist Park September 7.

      The event is hosted by XTERRA, a triathlon and trail run series, and it is one of only four XTERRA events in the the country.

      Triathletes can choose from a 250-yard swim, a 10-mile bike and a 3-mile run or a one-mile swim, a 30-mile bike and a 10-mile run.

      "Compared to other triathlons, it's very affordable and pretty convenient especially for locals. I think people will find the sporting event really attractive because the swim is shorter than most triathlons," said Derek Anderson, race director.

      A relay event will also be offered. The event costs $80.
