2016 - Mass State Triathlon
On July 10, MA HOBY volunteers helped out at the Mass State Triathlon held in Winchendon. The event was held at the beautiful Lake Dennison Recreation Area. The athletes swam .9 miles, biked 22 miles, and ran 6.2 miles. The winner completed the course in 1 hour 48 minutes. There were a total of 449 athletes who came from all over New England and ranged in age from 20's to 60's. The MA HOBY volunteers helped in all phases of the race from registration, athlete preparation, race guidance, cheering and supporting the athletes and controlling the equipment area. The race organizers were thrilled with the MA HOBY volunteers’ contributions and invited the volunteers to help with their future races and stated that they will always be welcome. This was a very rewarding day for all!
