This weekend, 25 athletes representing Robin Hood crossed the finish line of the Ironman US Championships held in New York City. For more than half of the athletes, this was their first time participating in an Ironman. With nearly 2,500 participants, Robin Hood’s team of 25 was definitely a noticeable force out on the course.
And while just finishing the race is a feat in itself, a few athletes had stand out, poverty-fighting performances:
- Our top female athlete posted the second fastest swim for women, won her age group (25-29) and qualified for the Ironman World Championship held in Kona, Hawaii.
- Our top male athlete ran the 10th fastest marathon split (3:11:34) and finished 75th overall and 15th in his age group.
It was an incredibly inspiring day, for our athletes and the City of New York. Next up – the NYC Marathon!
Thank you to all the atheles that ran, swam, and biked on the behalf of Robin Hood:
