MINDEN — Plans are in the works for a triathlon here, although details about the route still are not finalized.
Ryan Wakefield, a 2006 Minden High School graduate who now works as a personal trainer and health coach in Bloomington, Minn., applied to the city for the event, which he said would take place either May 31 or June 1, a Saturday or Sunday.
He said the triathlon would show Minden is an active city and bring people together through exercise.
"This is an event Minden hasn't provided yet," he said. "It's something I would like to see the community outreach and do. It brings the pool together with the rest of the community and teaches people about exercise and nutrition, as well."
