Emily Sherrard’s Bio:
Emily found her way to the sport of triathlon from running. Having been a competitive runner through college, she felt a void in her athletic life upon starting medical school, thus she began competing in triathlons. What started as an outlet quickly became a passion and Emily found much success at the age group level, winning the 2013 70.3 World Championship and finishing on the podium at the 2014 Ironman World Championship, in just her first Iron-distance race. Her achievements in the sport inspired her to move up to the professional level to compete against the best in the world. Having completed medical school, she is deferring her training as a physician for a brief period of time to compete as a professional in triathlon. Emily says that medicine is not a job, but a calling, and her future finish line will be with her patients. But, for now she is choosing to pursue her passion for competing at the highest level in triathlon.

A great Season Kick-off Party!

Thank you to our sponsors, race directors and members who turned out for our 2015 Season Kick-Off Party. Special thanks goes to our club sponsors and race directors who provided raffle items for our members. A great event and fun way to start the race season for the year!
