Wednesday , July 21, 2010 - 3:10 PM

Triathlon is a fast growing sport in Utah. As a certified running coach since 1996, Lora Erickson, also known as the "Blonde Runner," has seen many long time runners embrace the new challenge of triathlons while still enjoying running. She maintains that "the cross-training is good for runners."

Erickson is currently in the process of organizing an new Northern Utah Triathlon Club.

The group will welcome beginners, intermediate and elite or professional athletes. Details are still being worked out, but weekly group rides, swim clinics and running lectures will be scheduled regularly.

"Many pro athletes are already on board and are excited to be part of this new group," she reports. For more information, contact her at (801) 299-1601, by e-mail via or by visiting
