The District 90 Fitness and Sport Training (FAST) Camp recently held their fourth annual mini-triathlon at the O’Fallon Park. Students swam 500 yards, ran two miles, and then biked three miles.

Nick Edwards set a blistering pace for the boys as he won first place in a time of 42:01. This time was just a few seconds from breaking the record of 41:49 which is currently held by Kyle Dismukes. The second place finisher in the boys division was Jack Lloyd with a time of 47:14 and third place went to Chase Hanson with a time of 48:08.

In the girls division, Mackenzie James was able to out sprint Ally Denton to the finish line and win by a total of seven seconds. James finished in a time of 51:27 while Denton finished right behind her with a time of 51:34. Finishing in third place was Abby Causey with a time of 52:16.

FAST Camp would like to thank all of the athletes and volunteers who participated. “It is a really awesome thing to watch these junior high athletes push themselves harder than they have ever pushed themselves before.  Plus, the parents got a bird’s eye view of how hard these kids worked for this event.”

FAST Camp would also like to thank C and C sports for donating shirts to all of the athletes who participated and to the O’Fallon Recreation Department for use of their facilities.
