Well everyone, the 13th annual Stoneleigh Kid’s Tryathlon is officially in the record books. Despite a little weather slowing us down, the event went off without a hitch. We had a stellar turnout and raised $2500 for our charity Cycle for Survival. I think I speak for everyone involved when I say we are thrilled with the outcome. I would like to take a moment to thank the various people who helped make this a success.
This event would not have been possible without the support of our numerous volunteers who made the day safe and ensured all athletes were having a blast. It takes a lot of hands to make sure the course is set up, kids are not running into each other, the finish line is upright, and that everyone has a banana after. So much to do and none of it would be done without the volunteers so a big thank you to all of them. If you didn’t volunteer this year, you should consider it for next year. It is a ton of fun and you get a front row seat to the action!
As a non-profit, we keep race costs as minimal as possible for the athletes. Nearly all of our charitable donation comes from corporate sponsors. Thank you to all of our corporate sponsors who made it possible to not only hold the race again but to also make headway towards raising our contribution to our primary benefactor. We appreciate your continued support.
And finally, I would like to thank the parents who encouraged and supported their little athletes this year in the race. There were a few challenges and I appreciate your willingness to roll with the punches and get them there on time and ready to race. Given all that we do as a community here I understand it can be challenging to keep up. I am so glad you did for this race.
Thanks again everyone and I can’t wait to see everyone out there on the course again next year!
Your Race Director
