MOSES LAKE — With the spring prep season finished up in the area, here are a few events to keep local fans at bay through the weekend.
Fuel Up to Play 60 at Lions Field
Former Seattle Seahawk Jordan Babineaux, in partnership with the NFL’s Fuel Up to Play 60 program, will be participating with students from Frontier Middle School in Moses Lake today. The program encourages in-school nutrition and physical wellness of youth around the country. An assembly will take place beforehand at 11:15 a.m. at Lions Field. The Moses Lake Triathlon: For the Health of It
In partnership with BuDu Racing, the local triathlon will take place on Saturday, June 8, at Blue Heron Park with three different race options. The Olympic distance, starting at 8 a.m., begins with a mile swim, followed by a 22 mile bike ride parallel to I-90, before finishing with a 6.2 mile run alongside Moses Lake.
The Sprint, at 10 a.m., offers the same trek with half the distance for the swim, bike ride, and run. The Family option, taking place at 10:15 a.m., begins with a quarter-mile shoreline swim followed by the same 11 mile bike ride and 3.1 mile run as the Sprint option.
