The Hokes Bluff Library Foundation and our Co-Sponsors: Hokes Bluff Lions Club and Tawanna Lions Club, invite everyone to join us as we go "BOOKIN IT" THROUGH THE BLUFF on May 15th beginning at 8:00am.
The race will be an exciting triathlon totaling 46 kilometers starting at the Hokes Bluff Community Center. Athletes will begin with a 10K run through the streets of Hokes Bluff to the Hokes Bluff Ferry Park, participants will kayak almost 4.5 kilometers down the Coosa until they reach the designated landing spot at Coosa Veranda Subdivision. The race will continue, as the challengers complete a vigorous 32 kilometers cycle through Eastern Etowah County to the finish line at the Hokes Bluff Community Center.
The race can be completed by an individual athlete, teams of three athletes, or an athlete can choose to run the 10K first leg of the race ONLY. The 10K course is a point to point and runners will be bussed back to the Hokes Bluff Community Center.
ALL proceeds go to the Hokes Bluff Library Foundation.
