They are on college swim and bike teams,” Heather Fisher, president of Save Red Rock, said. “These races encourage kids to be athletes and become motivated and dedicated. They learn to set goals, and gives them a feeling of accomplishment.”
Fisher added that all of the athletes will be wearing professional timing chips to clock their times.
