The third annual Barton Springs Pool Treeathlon will be held on Saturday, April 28, 2012 (10 am start). The Treeathlon is a very, very short, fun and family-oriented event to raise “fun” and funds for Barton Springs Pool. This will be a family-oriented event so that families with kids can be introduced to the joys of Barton Springs Pool and have a little taste of triathlons. Treeathletes will swim ACROSS Barton Springs Pool, bike a short loop around Zilker Park, and then run a short course around the Polo Fields. Presented by Friends of Barton Springs Pool in cooperation with Austin Parks Foundation, the Treeathlon is a semi-silly athletic endeavor to raise fun and tax deductible funds for Barton Springs Pool and other pool-related work of Friends of Barton Springs Pool.
