The Tinsel Triathlon in Hemet, Calif. will attract more than 1,000 athletes and will raise thousands of dollars for the United Way.
When Inland Assemblyman Paul Cook sounds an air horn to start Sunday’s 24th Tinsel Triathlon in Hemet, the usual assortment of full-time and once-a-year Inland athletes will set off from the 5K starting line.
The event at West Valley High School is the local United Way’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Last year more than $70,000 came in from entry and vendor fees and sponsorships. The money supports local nonprofit organizations and programs. Already this year, 1,000 people have registered for the race.
