Special thanks for this blog post to Ron Veilleaux with MT ErgoFit. We honor the hard work Ron has put in to help Fit to Fight transition as the key ingredient to organization and implementation of this year’s Peak Triathlon.
This year Fit to Fight took over the running of the Peak Triathlon. This would be the 6th year of the Triathlon and we were very pleased to be able to take this over as Fit to Fight’s main fundraiser of the year while maintaining the core partners of the event: The Peak Health and Wellness Center, and our Race Director, Kayla Johnson.
This year we had over 230 competitors, and over 95 volunteers. Additionally this year we had a new Corporate Cup division, with 9 teams competing for their business to bring home the Corporate Cup. The team from First Security Bank edged out some close competition to win the 1st Corporate Cup.
The Peak Triathlon always has some great stories. This year we had two teams compete in the Triathlon that were alumni from our last Fit to Fight session. It is truly inspiring to have our alumni competing in the event showing their strength after their battles with cancer. As in years past there were plenty of first timers. The first timers are the most fun to follow on the course as they always seem to have a bundle of nerves at the start to an overwhelming sense of accomplishment at the finish line. Finally, we had a new course record set this year by Dylan Gillespie, tearing through the course in 52:44.
The Peak Triathlon truly can offer something to any level of athlete. The proceeds from the triathlon go directly to Fit to Fight and help us offer our three free sessions each year for folks that are battling or recently battled cancer.
