2011 Treeathlon Update

Barton Springs Pool Treeathlon Update – Join us on Saturday, April 30, 2011 for the second annual Barton Springs Pool Treeathlon.  Be sure to join us for this very, very short, fun and family-oriented event to raise “fun” and funds for purchasing and maintaining trees at Barton Springs Pool and to support Friends of Barton Springs Pool.  Treeathletes will swim ACROSS Barton Springs Pool, bike a short loop around Zilker Park, and then run a short course around the Polo Fields.  Presented by Friends of Barton Springs Pool in cooperation with Austin Parks Foundation, the Treeathlon is a semi-silly athletic endeavor to raise fun and tax deductible funds for purchasing and maintaining trees for Barton Springs Pool and to bring back some of the “Keep Austin Weird” vibe.

We are working to keep what was fun from last year, including the quick dip in Barton Springs Pool, the dash around Zilker Park, the kegs and Maine Root root beer refreshments, TacoDeli tacos, and the percussive sounds of Rhythmic Force.  However, this year’s event will be especially fun for families with kids so we can introduce folks to the joys of Barton Springs Pool and give a little taste of triathlons.

Please join us in celebrating and supporting Barton Springs Pool with the Treeathlon, and if your business is interested in sponsoring this year’s Treeathlon, please contact Mike Cannatti at mike@hamiltonterrile.com.
