As many of you may have heard by now, our beloved teammate Roy McConnell was tragically killed last night along with 3 of his sons by a DUI driver. The Blanchard Park Y Tri Club will dedicate our two August team races to him.
On Saturday, September 18 (new date!), we are racing a sprint tri locally at Moss Park (see Mango Tri Festival) and inviting EVERYONE who knew Roy to come join us to celebrate Roy's life and tri spirit. There are duathlon and aquabike options for those who would prefer to run-bike-run or swim-bike, as well as relay options. Even if you are not planning to race, you can attend as a spectator or volunteer and help pay tribute to an exeptional man, father and a team favorite, Roy McConnell. Please keep his family in your prayers.
Special things at Roy's Race announced!
