Family to compete in triathlon

The Vail family, which includes children ages 8,10 and 13, will be competing in a triathlon July 13 in June Lake.

“We’re all doing it,” said mom Christine Vail, who will be competing in the event for the fourth time, while it will be the second stint for her husband, Tark.

The race will be a first for their son, 8-year-old Tommy, who has been taking swim lessons in preparation, and their daughter, 10-year-old Jocelyn. Tim, 13, already has experience under his belt. Joining the Vail family in the competition will be Christine’s father, Steve Canfield of Pine Valley.

The June Lake triathlon, billed as “Toughest Race in the Most Beautiful Place!” consists of a 100-meter swim, two miles of bike riding and a one-mile run.

Christine said she thought it would be fun for the whole family.

“I looked at it as a challenge,” Tark said about competing. “I just thought it was the greatest full body workout.”
