The inaugural Sept. 1 Tri-Graeagle Triathlon was deemed successful enough for the company Community MultiSport Events to start planning next year’s event. Alice Berg, owner of the sporting events planning company, hoped for 100 triathletes at the event. At 99, Berg deemed the competition close enough.
“The event went really well,” said Berg ecstatically. “There was just so much positive feedback. So many people told me they wouldn’t have ever come to Plumas County if it wasn’t for the triathlon; and now they plan on coming back.”
