Bank of American Fork is once again the title sponsor for the Woman of Steel Triathlon and 5K being held on May 19, 2012 at the American Fork Fitness Center. The all-female triathlon includes a 300-meter outdoor-pool swim, 12-mile bike and 3-mile run, and also offers a 5K as a separate race.
The event honors women who have used fitness to overcome life-changing obstacles. It will also benefit Kids on the Move, a non-profit organization that provides services to families and children with special needs.
Bank of American Fork is partnering with race organizer TriUtah to produce the race. Athletes can go to triutah.com/events to register for one of the 1,000 triathlon or unlimited 5K spots. Registration is not available at Bank of American Fork branches or via mail.
The Bank of American Fork Woman of Steel Triathlon was voted the Best Sprint Triathlon in 2011 by Active.com, the leading online community for millions of active individuals to discover, learn about, share, register for and participate in races, team sports and recreational activities. The Best Sprint Triathlon is a national award that recognizes short-distance triathlons that are ideal for beginner athletes.
