History

A Brief History of the Longmont Triathlon

In 1981, the first Longmont Triathlon started with 56 participants.

The event was held as 3 separate events. The run was a 10K that started at 9am, the 25 mile bike race started at noon and the 1000 meter swim began at 3pm - truly an all day event! There were no transition times, but the times for all three individual events were added together to determine the winner. Overall winners that year were Patti McNitt and Dennis Wilson, both in the 20-29 age category. The cost for the race, which included a 50/50 t-shirt and refreshments, was $12. The oldest age group offered was 40 and over.

This format continued for one more year with the bike changing from 25 miles to 19 in the second year. In subsequent years, the race was combined so all events were consecutive. In addition, the course has seen numerous changes most dictated by road construction and the growth of Longmont's east side.

The Longmont Triathlon is becoming a historic event in Longmont and, with a 7-0 vote in 2014, the Longmont City Council unanimously supported continuing the tradition.
