You Are A Triathlete!!!!!

As you cross the finish line of an Iron Man Triathlon, the announcer says your name, age, where you are from, and then says “Congratulations, You are an IRONMAN!!”  It is one of the greatest feelings in the world to hear that after completing a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, followed by a 26.2 marathon run!  Well, although the distances were slightly shorter this morning, I would like to say to everyone who participated in the 2012 Greenwich Kids Triathlon, “Congratulations, You are a Triathlete!”  You should feel proud of your accomplishment and hopefully it sparked an interest to compete again next year.

Thank you again to all of the volunteers!  (Including those that just stepped in to offer a helping hand)  What a special community we live in.  Thank you!

Please support our Sponsors throughout the year and thank them for supporting our event!

Finally, probably the only reason you are checking this site, results will be posted shortly.

Thank you and good luck in all that you do…Bill Bogardus

(PS: As a Race Director, I want the participants, as well as the spectators to have an excellent experience.  I have already thought about ways to improve for next year.  Please feel free to email me with suggestions, comments, questions, concerns, etc.  I welcome ALL feedback.  (

  1. This was such a great event. Our first. Thought the organization was outstanding! What a great morning! My son came off the track field, literally beaming!! Thanks Bill (and GTC) for creating such incredible opportunities.

  2. Our first event as well….. It was really well organized and the kids were monitored and safe. Thank you for your efforts. We’ll see you next year!

  3. Excellent event for our 3 kids. The track was very well marked and the constant reminder to the kids to have fun was great. Also, the music and announcements were spot on! Thanks to all the volunteers who make this happen!

  4. Thank you for putting on such a lovely event for our kids! It was (as always) a much anticipated highlight of their year. 🙂

  5. When are the results going to be posted? I thought the kids would have the bad on them so we would have accurate times….thanks
