Sentry to Sponsor the United Way Duathlon

Stevens Point is gearing up for the annual United Way duathlon, sponsored by the Sentry Insurance Foundation. The Run, Bike, Unite event will start at picturesque SentryWorld at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, August 27.

Participants can tackle the 2-mile run/13-mile bike/ 2-mile run individually, or by relay team.

Refreshments, entertainment and activities will be available before, during and following the event. Complimentary on-site massages, pre-race bike safety checks and on-course bike repairs will also be provided.

Last year, nearly 500 people participated in the event, far surpassing the expected 200.

Kelsey Corrigan, the Health and Wellness Coordinator for Sentry Insurance, participated in the event last year. Corrigan stated, “It was really fun. We have a goal of getting more people this year. We had a phenomenal turn out last year. It was a great course to run.”

“There are a lot of people who are really competitive but a lot of people come out just for fun. It’s a great event for everyone,” Corrigan added.

Everyone is encouraged to come and show support for the United Way. For information on registering for the event, or to sign up as a volunteer, visit unitedwaypoco.org/Duathlon.
