UMM hosts 30th annual Tinman Triathlon
The 30th annual Tinman Triathlon was held Saturday, April 26 at the University of Minnesota, Morris.
Along with the usual Olympic Triathlon – 1100 yard swim, 19 mile bike, 6.2 mile run – Tinman offered a new Sprint Triathlon course this year. The sprint course was a 450 yard swim, 12 mile bike, and 3.1 mile run, which seemed to bring in a lot more competitors to the event.
There were 27 individual finishers and eight team finishers for the Olympic course and the additional sprint course had 25 individuals and five teams cross the track finish line.
As usual, the Tinman featured individual and team competition with awards for various age groups, male/female and team categories.
Top individual finishers for Olympic course were Bette Rowley and Matt Schmidgall and the top team was “Rust Never Sleeps 2” (Vaughn Dieter, Bill Eckerson, and Bonnie Koehntop).
Top individual finishers for the Sprint course were Tess Cotter and Craig Harrison and the top sprint team was “Team Molden” (Emma, Doug, and Mike Molden).
