Giving it a tri


First_to_finish Forerunner_finish_2

Awards_2Local ladies swept the top 3 spots in the WIN for KC Tri with Leslie Curley of Topeka blazing through in 59:32. Second place went to Lettie Ebbs of Shawnee, 1:03:00, and third place went to Teirnan Good of Kansas City, MO, with a time of 1:04:31. All three earned Garmin Forerunner GPS-enabled trainers to help them take their training to the next level.

Garmin_crewJeep_and_productsAs one of the sponsors of this race, we had the Garmin customized Jeep at the finish line festival, displaying GPS navigators for automotive, motorcycle and outdoor applications as well as fitness devices for running and cycling. Reps from our in-house product support team were on hand to answer questions and help demo the products. Several Garmin associates also served as coordinators for the various race segments and many others volunteered on race day to monitor the bike course or help out at the aid stations or other venues.

Sabrena Chalk_cheers_2Cool_drinks Young athletes and their coaches and parents from Girls on the Run helped at the aid stations along the run course. These girls didn’t just hand out cool drinks to the runners. They dished out motivation in the form of “chalk cheers”, smiles and chants. As many a first-timer can attest, sometimes a simple shout-out from a spectator can give you the boost you need to cross that finish line.

One participant summed up her race experience with this note of thanks: Just wanted to thank you for another well-run and well-organized event. It was awesome!! Packet pick-up, body marking…everything was "a piece of cake". Your volunteers were wonderful!! They were very helpful, friendly and encouraging. The food, prizes, finisher’s medals…it was all SO COOL!!!!
