Coming this May, the Utica Comets and ATC Endurance will partner together for series of multisport events for kids and adults in the Mohawk Valley. The Utica Comets Triathlon Series presented by ATC Endurance will begin on Sunday, May 31at the fifth annual Cooperstown Triathlon at Glimmerglass State Park. Athletes should note the week later start and venue change for this year’s race. The changes will greatly improve the lake temperature and surrounding roadways of the area. Look for a new and improved course!
The Utica Comets Triathlon Series continues with the Delta Lake Sprint and Intermediate Distance Triathlon to be held on Sunday, July 19 and the Old Forge Triathlon will take place on August 16.
Athletes can also prepare for the TOUGHKids Syracuse triathlon at Delta Lake State Park on July 18 this year. The youth triathlon for kids ages 4-14 years old looks to build on its past successes. Check the website or our social media pages for the most current information.
“Helping promote physical fitness and nutrition here in the Mohawk Valley is something the Utica Comets strongly believe in,” said Comets President Robert Esche. “Like our players, the athletes that compete in these events are dedicated and committed to their health and we are thrilled to be a part of these great events.”
ATC Endurance was founded in 2009 and is a full service race management company based out of New York Mills. The events in this series not only give an opportunity for local residents to train and compete but it showcases what Central New York has to offer to the athletes and their families who travel in from outside the area.
“The support of the Utica Comets means so much to ATC Endurance races because each organization shares the same values, not least of which is that of showcasing this region, and demonstrating to the folks who travel here what we can all accomplish when working together,”
Michael Brych, President of ATC Endurance. “Triathletes train to the peak of fitness to compete, and having the support of a team like the Utica Comets, who surely perform at the highest level of their sport, will give our athletes an added boost out on the race course.”
