PTS Endurance Series comes to an end with the 2013 Red Top Mountain Olympic Triathlon
Acworth, Georgia, August 30, 2013: PT Solutions is a privately owned physical therapist practice with locations in Illinois, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Kentucky. On Sunday, August 25th, PT Solutions held the 2013 Red Top Mountain Olympic Triathlon at Gatewood Park in Cartersville.
The start of the race began at 7:00 am and involved a 1.5k swim in Lake Allatoona. Participants transitioned from the swim portion and hopped on their bikes for a 42k ride across steep, rolling hills. Finally, the participants finished with a challenging 10k run. Along with cheering spectators, athletes were greeted at the finish line by delicious offerings from Henry’s Louisiana Grill.
Although the course was tough, the overall male winner, Russell Smith, finished in a blistering time of 2:23:55. Not to be outdone, the overall female winner, Crystal Perkins, crossed the finish line with a time of 2:43:08.
PT Solutions would like to extend a huge “THANK YOU” to the athletes, PT Solutions’ staff, patients, and our volunteers!
