Emily Schindler Memorial Triathlon
Saturday, April 26, 2014
The Emily Schindler Memorial Scholarship Triathlon benefits the Emily Schindler Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Emily Spent most of her life in the water. Joining the SPY Team when she was 9 years old, she always put friendship above competition and exemplified team spirit as a swimmer on the team for 9 years. Always encouranging others to remain positive, Emily brought a smile to everyone around her. When she laughed, she laughed wholeheartedly. It was as if she had just heard the funniest joke in the world. Her blond hair shining in the sunlight reminded you of an angel.
On a snow-covered road in January 2004, Emily was killed in a car accident. After her death, her parents established a scholarship fund in her name. The scholarship is awarded annually to any graduating or past SPY swimmer who has been on the team for at least one year. At least one scholarship in the amount of $1000 is awarded each year. To apply, applicants must submit an essay describing how swimming on the SPY team has affected their life. Applicants are judged on their essay, an interview with members of the selection committee, recommendations from the SPY coaches and financial need. To date, nearly $29,000 has been awarded to 42 swimmers.
To make a tax-deductible contribution to the fund, please make your contribution payable to "Emily Schindler Memorial Scholarship" and mail to:

Relays consist of 2 or 3 people. Each leg needs to be completed by the person who started the leg. There can be one person for one leg and another for two or a total of three people each doing one leg. Each person needs to complete a separate registration form to participate.
The Flamingo Feat is an opportunity for previous participants in the Emily Schindler Memorial Scholarship triathlon to develop their triathlon skills and compete in a triathlon with distances approximately double the ESMS Triathlon. (1 mile swim, 18 mile bike, 6 mile run)
To be eligible to compete in the Flamingo Feat, individuals must have a swim time of 30 minutes or less for the one mile swim. The Flamingo Feat is limited to individual participation (no teams).
In keeping with Emily's enthusiasm for "the time she had" rather than her "swim times," we encourage everyone to enjoy their experience of a recreational triathlon. The swim, run and transition times (the time between each leg of the event) will be posted. Times will not be posted for the bike "ride" because no one is permitted to exceed the speed limit of 15 mph and participants will not receive an advantage or disadvantage by the bike "ride."
There will be designated pathways roped off to direct participants to the next leg of the triathlon.
Please stay in the path for your safety and obey all B & A Trail regulations including the 15 mph speed limit - failure to do so will result in disqualification.
