Thank You for a Great 2018!
Hi everybody! We'd like to offer a heartfelt thanks to everyone involved in the 6th annual Peasantman Steel Distance Triathlon Series. Aside from the perfect racing conditions, the 2018 race also brought us some breathtaking highlights, including a husband/wife Half Distance winning duo, a shattered Full Steel Distance overall course record, and a 6-time defending champion relay team!
For the sixth straight year the community welcomed our event with open arms, and we cannot overstate how much that means to us. So we first need to acknowledge the people behind the scenes who made Peasantman 2018 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 / Marine Patrol, and the New York State Police all helped maintain the safety of the event. Our local sponsors came through HUGE. And of course we need to thank the hundreds of athletes who participated!
