This weekend close to 400 athletes took to the water, climbed onto their bike seats and pounded the pavement during the third annual Rocky Mountain Triathlon in Silverthorne.

And by all accounts this year’s event exceeded participant expectations, said Matt Kirkendall, race director and equipment manager for Human Movement, an event management company based in Louisville. Aside from rainy weather, Kirkendall said many of the race’s 385 registered participants voiced high praise, not simply for course design, but for the improvements in how the race was managed compared with previous years.

“The organization was a lot smoother and people said this year’s event was a better experience and a lot of fun,” Kirkendall said. “I have to give a lot of thanks to Summit County Water Rescue who came out and helped with the swim portion of the competition. Having them there really gave a lot of participants confidence in the water.”

The high praise went beyond the athletes, Kirkendall said, to include town officials, business owners and the surrounding neighborhoods. With all of the positive feedback, Human Movement officials are already looking forward to organizing the event again next year.

“The goal is to make it a two-day event sometime in the near future,” Kirkendall said. “We’re hoping to run all of the sprint class participants one day and all of the Olympic class participants the second day.”

Although transitioning the triathlon to a two-day event may be a few years down the road, Kirkendall said participants could expect changes to be implemented as early as next year.

“Overall the course is going to be the same, but we know the town is working on completing the Blue River Trail, so we plan to run more of the trail running course along the river,” he said.
