Thunder was proud to take part in the 1st Annual FitCity Triathlon!

Published on 8/10/2008

The FitCity Triathlon, presented by WellWorx Sporting Clubs, is the latest edition to the Memphis area multisport schedule.  The 1st Annual FitCity Triahtlon consisted of a 1/2 mile swim, 23 mile bike and 4 mile run.  This event had around 200 competitors for its first year!  Memphis Thunder Racing had a number of athletes compete or volunteer at this great event.


Memphis Thunder would like to put out a special thank you to our fellow team member, Doug Ruddle for dreaming up and putting this event together.  Doug has been injured for most of the 2008 season and has been unable to compete at events.  Luckily, for the rest of the Memphis-area multisport athletes, Doug's passion for our sport manifested itself in another way, race directing.  The event was definately first class, and we can't wait to see what he dreams up next.


Congratulations to all the finishers and thank you to all the volunteers!
