Peasantman Thanks You for a Great 2017!
Greetings everyone! After last year's heavy rains, the King of the Finger Lakes issued a decree to assure clear skies for the 2017 event. And aside from the great weather, this year's race also brought us some big highlights, including several first-time winners, a shattered course record, and a 5-time defending champion relay team!
For the fifth straight year the community welcomed our event with open arms, and we cannot overstate how much that means to us. So we need to acknowledge the people behind the scenes who made Peasantman 2017 possible.
Several local organizations volunteered at the aid stations, making our lives much easier (see detailed list at the bottom). Lifeguards and kayakers patrolled the swim course. Jim Hogan of Geneva Bicycle Center provided his annual support on the bike course. Dan Doyle, Mary Ann Martin, and the village of Penn Yan were all critical to the event's success. The towns of Jerusalem and Benton along with the residents of all of the surrounding communities have all put tremendous effort, faith, and belief into this cause, and we are very grateful. The Penn Yan Police Department, Yates County Sheriff's Department, and New York State Police all helped maintain the safety of the event. And of course we need to thank the hundreds of athletes who participated!
