The year following Marlene's passing, the JTI Team decided to pass the race portion of their program over to Marlene's family. They proudly accepted the offer and held their first annual race on Mother's Day in 2011. Today Marlene's three daughters, Tammy Fleming, Nicolene Watson and Wanda Waldner, continue organizing this race in their mom's memory. The participant registration fees, company sponsorship and race day volunteers are what allow this race to continue.
What is our race all about? MAKIN IT HAPPEN triathlon is an un-timed race designed for two groups of people; the first time triathletes as well as the experienced. The beginners want to feel the experience of a triathlon race and the experienced want a soft kick-start to their training schedule. Over half of our beginner participants carry on to compete in several triathlons through out the year, and most continue to keep fitness as a top priority in their lives. So whether it's your first race ever or just the first race of the year we welcome you all, men included! Our distances are as follows:
Distances for the Women only heat are:
Swim: 200 metre - Bike: 6 km - Run: 2 km
