Athletes swam, biked, and ran their way to the finish line at Palatine Park District’s “Tri Your Luck!” Indoor Triathlon Sunday, March 10. The event was held at Harper College in Palatine, where Palatine Park District manages indoor pool operations and aquatic, dance, fitness, and sports programing.

Triathlon went this year,” Shariatzadeh said. “This is the fifth year we have run the event, and this was the first year we had a full house!  Several participants returned from previous years, and it is always nice to see familiar faces,” she added.
