Race Results are IN!

August 2, 2011

500 meter swim, 10 mile bike, 3 mile run

After the pour down and hour delay Saturday morning, the WIN for KC triathlon kicked into gear. With a total of 718 participants, all 718 crossed the finish line with an average of 1 hour and 31 minutes – ranging from 12 years of age to 71 years old. Check out the race results! On top of that, this local triathlon received official certification as a green race by the Council for Responsible Sport (ReSport), an organization that provides an independent, comprehensive certification for sustainable athletic events. WIN for KC has a goal of engaging thousands of women and girls in athletics … through programs, camps and events like this. Seeing that sports have played such an important role in my life; it only makes sense to spread the word and passion for competition and athletics to the younger generations. I was more than honored to be a sponsor of this years’ triathlon and witness such an incredible and emotional accomplishment made by each of these women!
