WHAT: MAKIN IT HAPPEN is a triathlon in memory of Marlene Antoniuk who battled lymphoma cancer from 2004 until October 2010. She volunteered annually at the Just - Tri - It triathlon race which was formed to introduce women to the sport. Her big smile and contagious laugh along with her strength & determination will always be remembered.
The year following Marlene's passing, the JTI Team decided to pass the race portion of their program over to Marlene's family. They proudly accepted the offer and held their first annual race on Mother's Day in 2011. Today Marlene's three daughters, Tammy Fleming, Nicolene Watson and Wanda Waldner, continue organizing this race in their mom's memory. The participant registration fees, company sponsorship and race day volunteers are what allow this race to continue.
Our triathlon is an un-timed race designed for two groups of people; the first time triathletes as well as the experienced. The beginners want to feel the experience of a triathlon race and the experienced want a soft kick-start to their training schedule. Over half of our beginner participants carry on to compete in several triathlons through out the year, and most continue to keep fitness as a top priority in their lives. So whether it's your first race ever or just the first race of the year we welcome you all, men included!
