Elite and amateur athletes are getting ready for a big race this weekend. The Hy-Vee Triathlon starts and finishes at Gray’s Lake this Sunday. Part of the competition includes a relay.
The Kurth Family is getting ready to run, bike and swim. Carsen Kurth says, “We’re called 3XGen.”
The Kurth family is about to give the tri, a try. Carsen says, “I’m doing the 10K of the race. And, I’m 14 years old.”
His dad says, “My name is David Kurth. I am doing the swimming leg, and I’m 41 years old.”
And, David Kurth’s dad says, “I’m Tom Kurth, grandfather of the outfit, 69. I’m the biker part of it.”
The grandfather of the group says he isn’t worried about biking the 40 kilometers. He says, “I was training anyway for RAGBRAI.”
