Platte River Fitness Series
The Platte River Fitness Series (PRFS) is a fitness initiative representing several public/private partnerships between the North Platte Recreation Department and a variety of local businesses, civic organizations and communities. It was created to support, motivate and educate citizens about the benefits of a healthy, active lifestyle. We believe in the holistic benefit to individuals who use our fitness events as motivation to exercise, eat well, and embrace challenge. We aim to encourage strong bodies and bold spirits. Through the work of this initiative, we envision communities of people who are engaged, energized and responsible for their own well-being. The Platte River Fitness Series is dedicated to creating a culture of physical activity and healthy recreation, and to supporting strong, positive communities as the best places to work and live.
The 2013 series featured 21 races. These events reflect the Platte River area, extending in communities from Ogallala to Brady. Triathlon distances range from a super-sprint, 2 sprint opportunities, to an Olympic distance triathlon. In addition, PFRS offers a sprint adventure triathlon. The adventure race enthusiasts can also participate in 3 other adventure style events offered throughout the year. Every competitive distance up to a half-marathon distance is offered. WThere are 5Ks (3.1 miles), 10K’s (6.2 miles), a 15K (9.3 miles), and a half-marathon (13.1 miles), offering a continuum of challenging fitness activities.
