You are cordially invited to attend the Central Jersey Tri Club and Cream Ridge Winery Meet and Greet on Sunday, March 6th from 11am to 4pm!
Our club sponsor, the Cream Ridge Winery is graciously hosting the Central Jersey Tri Club for a Meet and Greet of athletes and the local community to come and enjoy a pleasant afternoon at the winery. This event is open to the general public and anyone who wishes to attend to learn and meet the members of the Central Jersey Tri Club.
We have a great and fun afternoon scheduled, but the most important points to take note are our group run, followed by the introduction of Central Jersey Tri Club. We’ll also have a panel of club members speaking about how they got their start in the sport of triathlon and then the highlight of the afternoon will be a talk by local and professional triathlete Emily Sherrard.
Also in attendance there will be a few local area vendors who will market their businesses and services to the community.
Lastly, for those who attend we will raffle off two free 2016 Central Jersey Tri Club Memberships. These are full club memberships for 2016 with all the privileges and benefits received by each member of the club.

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.
