Park district thanks volunteers

Dear Editor,

I would like to thank everyone who participated, volunteered and helped to make the eighth annual Oregon Park District Sprint and first annual Super Sprint Triathlon a success. 

Ninety-one participants came out for a perfect morning to enjoy the park district’s pool and Oregon for running and biking.  

The event could not happen without over 50 volunteers who came out early to put on this premier event. 

The park district is fortunate that many staff, families, friends, commissioners and community members volunteer step up to volunteer and allow the park district to put on many special events throughout the year. 

Special thank you to the City of Oregon for providing the barricades and shutting down the streets. 

Thank you to Oregon Police Chief Darin DeHaan and his officers for traffic control on Route 64. 

Thank you to Chad Brinkman from Athetico for providing post-race stretching and volunteers, and to our timer Al Fielder at Tri-3 Sports Timing.

We had athletes from Wisconsin, Indiana and Iowa as well as visitors from all over Illinois and many locals enjoying not only our facility but the town of Oregon as well. 

Again, I thank everyone for making this triathlon another successful event for the Oregon Park District.
