Dear 2009 Gloucester Triathlon participant,
You are the first to hear some exciting news! We have been contacted by Mayor Carolyn Kirk to bring BACK the Gloucester Triathlon. Thanks to YOU, we had a wildly successful 2009 Gloucester Triathlon. We are thrilled to stage the event again in one of favorite race venues.
We hope to have as soon as possible final approval from the City Council and other various department heads for a September race date (after Labor Day weekend).
IMPORTANT – to show your support for this event and to join our 2012 email list please gohere. If you are a Facebook user follow the race here.
Here is Mayor Kirk’s letter of support for the 2012 Gloucester Triathlon.
SPREAD THE WORD – the triathlon is coming back!!

Thanks Deane Gyllenhaal for the heads up!
"The Gloucester Fishermen Athletic Association has decided not to host the annual Gloucester Fisherman Sprint Triathlon in 2012, as we’ve done since its creation in 2009. The triathlon takes a huge amount of time and resources to organize and run, so the GFAA plans instead to focus on other efforts that better support our fundraising goals. We are immensely grateful to all who participated in the Gloucester Tri and helped make it possible the last three years. The Gloucester Fishermen Athletic Association remains more committed than ever to helping all of Gloucester’s children participate in the sport of their choice, regardless of financial circumstances."
-Janda Ricci-Munn, founder/race coordinator, Gloucester Fisherman Sprint Triathlon

The date has been set and the course laid out for the second annual Gloucester Tri. 1/3 mile swim-bike 15.5 miles and run 3.1 miles.
August 8th 2010 and if you are interested I would sign up immediately. Last year’s event was an incredible success and after speaking with a ton of the athletes they all planned to return. So I would get your entry form in ASAP if you want to compete.
