MVR Member To Compete In Ironman Triathlon
Merrimack Valley Rotary Club's newest member, James Fitton, is competing in his first Ironman Triathlon in Louisville, KY, on August 31st, 2008. The race consists of a 2.4 mile swim in the Ohio River, a 112 mile bike, followed by a marathon (26.2 miles)! After 2 years of competitive racing in local triathlons of various distances, including sprints, international distance and half-ironmans, James feels his training over the past year and commitment to the sport has prepared him to take on this enormous challenge. On race day, you will be able to track his performance online, at http://ironman.com/events/ironman/louisville under the 'Race Results' Section, '2008 - Athlete Tracker'. Good Luck!
