Local Race Results

New York Marathon

SOMA Quarterman Triathlon

On Halloween weekend a few of us SSRer'scompeted in the SOMA 1/4 Ironman (no one wanted to do the 1/2!). Even though it was in Phoenix it was chilly (65 degree water? yowza!).

Just like Shrimpman, Mike won the race (02:09:52)!! Steven came in 2nd in his age group (02:24:34), 9th overall, Alyssa won her age group (02:40:31) and was FIRST OUT OF THE WATER!!, while EP (02:52:56) and I (02:49:07) brought up the rear. The race was very well organized (other than the unripe bananas) and the drive along Highway 60 is almost worth the trip.

Full results are here
