The Vail Valley Charitable Fund is proud to present the 7th Annual BecTri Sprint Triathlon, 5K Walk/Run, and Kid’s Duathlon on Saturday August 2nd, 2014! This year the BecTri will be held as a Triathon, 5K Walk/Run, and Kid’s Duathlon that should challenge athletes of all ages and abilities. The race will start at 8:00 AM at Nottingham Park in Avon, Colorado. Race as an individual or with friends as a team – it’s a great race for beginners who want to experience the challenge of a high-altitude, open-water swim. All levels of athletes are encouraged to participate and should enjoy the lake and course. Bring the family and your friends to spend a beautiful day in the park while you participate in a fun event that benefits the Vail Valley Charitable Fund, a local charity.
Meet Rebecca – The Girl Who Inspired the BecTri
BecTri is named in memory of Rebecca Lynn Yarberry, a local triathlete and dear friend who passed away in a tragic car accident in 2007. Becky dedicated her life to helping others personally and through her career as a clinical supervisor at Colorado Mountain Medical in Vail, CO. We honor her memory by presenting a race that supports the charitable causes she was passionate about, and honor her spirit by fostering a race environment that is encouraging to everyone, regardless of skill level.
BecTri is a non-profit race and any funds in reserve are donated to the Vail Valley Charitable Fund & CURE International. Vail Valley Charitable Fund helps local residents facing hardship due to medical crisis. CURE International is devoted to medical missions around the world.
