HENDERSON, Nev. - Lake Las Vegas Resort, Sunset Racing, H2O Velocity, GNC, and Cytosport have joined together to raise money for local charities through the 2005 Sunset Sprint Triathlon Series. This series will be made up of four events held on May 21, June 18, July 24 and September 10, 2005, all of which will take place on the same course consisting of an 800M swim, 15K bike and 5K run throughout the scenic resort. This course is designed to be both challenging and welcoming to triathletes of all levels.

Sunset Racing is currently accepting entries and sponsors for the event. Individuals and teams can enter on www.active.com, by emailing keith@sunsetracing.com or by calling (702) 871-7756.
