That was what was written on blue wristbands given to each athlete. Two words joined together that describe our beloved teammate Roy McConnell who raced for God, not himself. Who was tragically killed by a DUI driver on August 1, 2010, along with his three sons. For whom now a race is now named after so that he and his legacy will never be forgotten.

Blanchard Park Y Tri Club members came out in force to race, cheer and volunteer.


As well as many McConnells.
