Well, we couldn't be happier to report that the NEECA/Athol YMCA's first ever, VERY special Triathlon was a huge success! The common theme of the day was SMILES.
Runners.....Riders.....Bikers....everyone had a smile on their face. We were given the gift of beautiful weather, some very hardworking volunteers, and a fun group of competitors that took to heart our goal of making this an enjoyable day to get out with friends and family, get a little exercise, and have some fun.
Here were the placings:
Teams: 1st place - Dream Team,
2nd -Hideaway Hillbillies
3rd - Pine Oak Stables
Individual: Runner - Jack Palumbo
Cyclist - Shawn Fitzgibbons
Equestrian - Ann Degnan
