Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- Staying active in the cold winter months can be tough, but the Family Wellness Center in Fargo added some motivation this morning.

About thirty five people competed in the first Indoor Triathlon. Some came all the way from the cities for a 400 yard swim, 25 minute bike ride, and 20 minute run.

The first 500-dollars in enrollment fees were donated to the United Way of Cass and Clay Counties.

Wellness Education Events Manager, Angie Hasbrouck, says, "Participants of this triathlon are all different levels. We've had experienced ones where they're really competing to do their best and really preparing for the summer outdoor triathlons. And we've also had a lot of beginners, where this is their first triathlon ever."

Leftover proceeds benefit the Family Wellness Scholarship fund.
