The 56th Force Support Squadron Outdoor Recreation Center held the 2016 Luke Air Force Base Fall Triathlon a little early this year, but it had the desired effect. More than 60 athletes participated individually or on one of six teams.

They came from across base, and included some family members, to put themselves through the rigors of competing in three sports — some to win, others just to compete.

The event, which took place Aug. 20, included a 400-meter swim at Silver Wings Pool, an 11.4-mile bike ride and a 5k race on mapped out paths that took competitors all over base.
