On the 2nd running of the VTTR club-sponsored Micro-Triathlon at Williams Wharf, the competitors broke records, and braved Hurricane Matthew which was blowing up the east coast from the Carolinas. The previous course record of 1:02 in 2015 was shattered by Cale Hendricks (50:42) in this fast-paced event.

The participants pictured above really enjoyed the course and despite one equipment mishap (bicycle breakdown) and some rain during the 2-mile running leg, the enthusiasm was high. Not pictured was Doug Paredes, the 2nd place finisher, and experienced Mathews County triathlete. Hurricane Matthew vs Mathews County Micro-Triathlon was a lot of fun. VTTR will host a Micro-Tri with a minimum of 5 participants: check our webpage for information on how to host one for your family & friends!
