The twenty-third annual Tiburon Triathlon will be on the 28th of July 2013 - as always, the last Sunday in July. The course is a half mile swim (not measured, so it varies from year to year), a nine mile bike, and a two mile run. Proceeds benefit the Tiburon Volunteer Firefighters Association.
ABOUT US AND THE TIBURON TRIATHLON:We are the Tiburon Volunteer Fire Department, operating in conjunction with the Tiburon Fire Protection District to provide emergency medical and fire services to Tiburon, Belvedere, and the other parts of the Tiburon Peninsula. Our volunteers, some of whom are firefighters elsewhere, and local off-duty paid firefighters staff reserve engines to supplement the response capability of the District. The District and the volunteer association work together to run various community programs, such as fire safety week in local schools, CPR classes for the public and community groups, and defibrillator installation at local assembly points. Tiburon firefighters organize two community events that serve as our main fundraising activities—the Triathlon and the Fireman’s Casino Night. Check our general website for more information about the latter. http://www.tiburonfire.org. All proceeds from the Triathlon and other fundraising activities benefit the Tiburon Volunteer Fire Department, a California non-profit, tax-exempt organization.
The Triathlon began as one of a weekend full of events to celebrate our 50th Anniversary in 1991. Over the past twenty years, it has served our purposes to bring out the sporting best within the community, to introduce newcomers to triathlon in a safe, low key atmosphere, and to focus on certain target audiences—young people, firefighters, and locals. To ensure it stays low pressure and fun, it is not a race, no prizes or awards are given, and we keep it small. It is just for fun.
Key members of the Tiburon Triathlon staff are Matt Lucas (logistics and supply), Marcelo Verstain (registration), Jeff Bellinger (volunteer coordinator), Jay Clelland (transition area), B/C Ed Lynch (water operations), and Peter Winkler (incident command).
Finally, and most importantly, please remember and patronize our sponsors, whose continued generosity ensures the success of the Triathlon.
