The Musselman Triathlon found success in its transition to new owners Score This!!! in 2015. Little changed during the handoff, but we expressed an openness to experimenting with new ideas, and suggestions poured in.
Together with the event's organizing committee we'll introduce a relay option for 2016: triathletes will have the option of participating in the swim, bike, OR run, as part of a team. An AquaBike option has been added to the mini-Mussel sprint distance race, as well. Our hope is to open the event to more people at a local level, including area swimmers, cyclists, and runners who have expressed an interest in taking part in the Musselman without necessarily having to pick up a different sport.
We're excited about what's in store for the Musselman in 2016 - last year's men's champion Matt Migonis will return to defend all three titles, and inaugural winner Mary Eggers will return to compete, as well. The event's success wouldn't be possible without the efforts of the community that stands behind it, and we send them our thanks, and holiday greetings - see you all in 2016!
