Savageman Triathlon Videos from Sunday

I wanted to blog about the Savageman Triathlon from last Sunday before the week got away from me! My wife Jessica and my son, Noah, and I arrived at the top of Miller Rd (near Jennings) at about 10am to volunteer at the Killer Miller Hill aid station. Mike Kennedy & Marcia Warnick were already hard at work setting up the tent and filling water bottles with HEED (protein water) for the triathlon bikers.
The weather was perfect; sunny and warm. We had already seen some of the bikers riding down Mellinger Rd to Westernport. The bike course was something like 56 miles and the entire back-end of the race was UP Savage Mountain. I couldn’t believe how steep the hills were, but one by one the bikers started peddling by. Some took water, some took HEED, others took gel and salt tabs, but they all kept pushing past the aid station. It was really impressive to see these athletes climbing up hills ranging from 20-25% grade. Scott Lohr brought a sound system and blasted music throughout the day and it seemed to pump the bikers up. One biker even asked Scott for a beer as he rode through – and he got it 🙂 Nancy Jo Fratz did a great job coordinating the volunteers, and we had a lot more friends show up to pitch in.
We had several Railey Realty agents & friends/family participating in the race. Jimmy Railey, Russell Bounds, Steve & Kellyann Green, Audrey Kennedy and Jesse Shimrock to name a few. One of the videos below is of Audrey Kennedy coming up the hill, with her two boys & husband Mike cheering her on.
If you get a chance to volunteer next year or just watch the race, definitely participate. It’s a great way to spend a fall day in Garrett County and see some sights that you may not have seen before. The event brings lot of people and positive recognition to the area, which is great for everyone, and this race through our ‘hills and lakes’ is recognized as one of the toughest in the WORLD!!
