A one of a kind wintertime event is racing into Marywood University.

It all surrounds "The Race Under The Roof," an indoor triathlon. It’s family-friendly. Newswatch 16’s Ryan Leckey highlighted the indoor race on Wednesday.

Organizers got the word out early in order to give families time to train/practice for the event.

The event is for all ages. It’s open to the public. You do not have to be a student or employee of Marywood to participate.

WHEN IT HAPPENS:

The indoor tri will take place Saturday, Feb. 22, in the Center for Athletics and Wellness at Marywood University in the Scranton area.  This is the first year Marywood is hosting the event. It’s taken place before in another location in Lackawanna County.

The indoor triathlon features 16 athlete heats that will begin every 45 minutes, starting at 7:30 AM.
