Last-minute registrations still are available for the fifth annual Coteeman Triathlon, which will be held at 7:30 a.m. Saturday. The race goes from Main Street to the New Port Richey Recreation and Aquatic Center. This beginner-friendly triathlon includes a 9-mile bike course, 150-yard swim and a 5K run.
"This will be the biggest group we've ever had, once again," race director Rob Marlowe said. "We had 150 athletes last year and we're up to 160 right now. We haven't sold out yet, either. We're excited because the weather is going to be good, so it should be better than last year."
Online registration is closed, but the final day for on-site registration is today at the North Bay Medical Arts Building, 6633 Forest Ave. Fees are $85 for individuals and $105 for teams. For information, contact Marlowe at (727) 847-2424.
KAYAKING: The Salt Springs Alliance, the citizen support organization for Werner-Boyce Salt Springs State Park, will host a canoe/kayak trip in the park Saturday. The trip launches at 9 a.m. and should return no later than 11 a.m. Plan to arrive early enough to unload your watercraft, park and sign in. The trip will be a relaxing paddle of less than 2 miles through some of the most scenic areas of Werner-Boyce Salt Springs State Park, launching from the Salt Springs Alliance headquarters, paddling past the park manager's residence and upstream to Cauldron Spring. Paddlers will then backtrack and head further up Salt Spring Run to the source of Salt Spring and into the tidal lake. This is a suitable paddle for beginning kayakers and canoeists. All participants must bring their own boat, life vest and whistle. To reserve a spot, visitsupersaas.com/schedule/Salt Springs Alliance/Salt Spring Paddle.
