The Godfrey Park & Recreation Department is in the initial stages of organizing a triathlon for later this year.  Assistant Village Attorney Emily Johnson participates in triathlons, and Park & Recreation Executive Director Kimberly Caughran says Johnson wanted to bring an event to her hometown.

Caughran tells The Big Z they have been in conversation with the Alton – Wood River Sportsman’s Club as a potential host site.

Caughran says the hope is to book the event sometime this summer.  She says they have talked to the Wood River Park & Recreation Department in order to get some ideas.  Wood River’s triathlon has been a fixture in that community for three decades.
