Treeathlon Sponsorship Invitation

Please support Barton Springs Pool by helping sponsor the Third Annual Barton Springs Pool Treeathlon on April 28, 2012. Presented by Friends of Barton Springs Pool in cooperation with Austin Parks Foundation, the Treeathlon will be a very, very short and fun swim/bike/run event to raise “fun” and tax deductible funds for Barton Springs Pool and the surrounding area. Beginning at 10am, participants will swim ACROSS Barton Springs Pool(maybe 50 yards), bike a short loop through Zilker Park (about 2/3 mile), and then run a short course (1/4 to 1/2 mile) around the Polo Fields to the finish line party at the Zilker Rock Garden area.
