Ninth Annual Kick Cabin Fever Indoor Triathlon Held Recently

The Ninth annual Kick Cabin Fever Indoor Triathlon was held on Saturday, Feb. 25, at the Chautauqua Institution Turner Fitness Center.

The event, which consisted of a 15 minute swim, ride on a spin bike and run on a treadmill, proved to be a great way for people to beat the winter blues.

The overall winners with the most distance accumulated this year were Colin Barmore, age 15 from Cassadaga Valley Central School and Natalie Marasco age 39 from Warren, Pa.

Monies raised from the event stay in Chautauqua County for suicide prevention. Director Cheryl Burns initiated Kick Cabin Fever in Memory of her brother Marty one year after he took his own life.
