New Course Record: Micro Tri on Jun 15th

Twenty-two participants – many first time triathletes – took part in the kick off event in the 2019 Mathews Micro-Tri Series on June 15th. Joel Isley, age 57, broke the course record with a winner overall time of 48:05 – edging out the old course record by less than a minute (held by Tom Jenkins @ 48:46).

The Micro-Tri distances are shorter than standard triathlons, with 1/4 mile swim, 8 mile bike, and 2 mile run – which makes them ideal for beginners OR for experienced competitors looking to practice transitions.

What else makes these events so special? The event is well organized, competitive, and supportive at the same time. Donnie Martian summed it up “Thanks again for putting on this race. I really enjoyed it, and my kids enjoyed watching it as well.”
