Door County Triathlon lights up Murphy Park in Egg Harbor

Thousands of cars with many different license plates filling the makeshift parking lot at Murphy Park in Egg Harbor showed how important the Door County Triathlon was early Saturday morning. 


While most enjoy sleeping in during their summer weekends, the competitors for the event had to be up bright and early as the first wave, titled the “elite wave” hit the bay at 8 a.m. As they traveled through the challenging ¼ mile swim, 18 mile bike ride, and 3.1 mile run, many different competitors had different reasons for competing. 



One competitor said the reason they come back to compete every year is because of the ability to just stay healthy and active, and another competitor said running was something his father and him would do in their free time. No matter what the reason was for the commitment to the triathlon, it was always something that would keep them coming back. 


Brian Andryk from Verona was the winner in the men’s division, finishing with a time of 1:05:43. Robin Pomeroy, also from Verona, won the women’s division at 1:10:53. The half iron event is set to kick off at 8 a.m. on Sunday.
