What: The BAMA Triathlon
Who: The UA Triathlon Club is the biggest sponsor of the event. Bama Dining and the SUPe Store are also contributing.
When: Sunday, April 10, 8:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m.
Where: The UA Aquatic Center
Why: Jeffrey Poole, a senior majoring in mechanical engineering, is the director of the BAMA Triathlon. He said that the triathlon is open to anyone who wants to participate and there are free t shirts and food for participants. Poole also said that the triathlon is something that has not been introduced completely to the University yet and he is hoping to bring it to UA.
“It’s not just another 5K,” Poole said. “It’s something new that [someone] could try and it’s right here on campus, so they don’t have to go far [to participate].”
