Sosa wins Garden City triathlon to open series

The Myrtle Beach Triathlon Club’s Summer race series kicked off early this morning in Garden City Beach. The first triathlon of the year saw almost  60 competitors competing in a Sprint Style race that was as much for fun as it was competition.

Started in 2009 as a way to introduce, motivate, coach, train, support and celebrate tri-athletes of all ages and abilities along the Grand Strand, the Myrtle Beach Triathlon Club holds several events each year. Sunday’s event was the first of three triathlon’s scheduled over the next few months.

The competition began at 6:30am in lake-like conditions with a 500 yard swim in the ocean, followed by a 13 mile bike course, and a 3.1 mile run.

Diego Sosa led all competitors with an overall time of 1:05:30. He was followed by Michal Kovac at 1:06:19.

Overall female winners were Mary Kate Noble with a time of 1:12:07, and Dawn Woodard finishing less than a minute behind at 1:13:06.

Race Organizer Pete Politis felt the event went well, “We had a wonderful race with calm waters & sunny skies. We had several newbies that raced for the first time. It is always enjoyable watching them take their first steps into becoming life long triathletes. Their Journey has just begun.”

MBTC’s next event will be held on August 5th, at Docksider in North Myrtle Beach, for more information, visit them online at http://mbtriclub.org
