It is with a very heavy heart that we have to say goodbye to our annual Hueston Woods Triathlon.

Many of you know that for the last six years our families have run this race with all of our heart and soul. Due to life (new jobs, kids, etc.) it has become painstakingly clear to us that we just do not have enough time or energy to dedicate to producing a high quality race.

It was a very difficult decision to make that we have thought long and hard about over the past year. We are planning to participate more in local events rather than planning and managing our own event.

At this time we are keeping our nonprofit and 501c3 status in hopes life will allow us to start our own race again in the future. We will still make an effort to raise money for the charities we represent, but in a different manner.

We have thought about starting a fundraising Triathlon/Duathlon Team. We have only begun to train again and have not researched all the aspects of the team approach. If anyone may be interested in helping or simply racing with us as a team please let us know.

The Hueston Woods Triathlon may be coming to an end, but we are certainly not ending our drive to raise money for Crohn's Colitis Foundation of America and Muscular Dystrophy Association.
