Sunshine welcomed SheROX Triathlon Sunday morning

-

Clear skies and quickly climbing temperatures into the 80s on Sunday morning, June 10, created the conditions for enthusiastic swimmers, runners and bicyclists throughout Naperville, many of whom were attracted to the SheROX Triathlon in downtown Naperville.

The annual SheROX Triathlon started at Centennial Beach, then the running/walking leg of the race wrapped around to Jefferson and Aurora toward West Street where the bicycle portion of the event began toward 75th Street and back again.

The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF) is the selected and Official Charitable Partner of the 2012 SheROX Triathlon Series. OCRF is dedicated exclusively to funding ovarian cancer research with a mission to find a method of early detection and therefore a cure for ovarian cancer.

Congratulations to all participants and thanks to all the volunteers who passed out water and ice along the triathlon route. Certainly all the applause and encouragement from sidewalk cheerleaders were welcomed, too.

According to the event’s Web site, 1,493 individuals and 58 relay teams, all women, finished the race. The first five individuals to finish were Jennifer Garrison, Elizabeth Waterstraat, Karen Snyder, Kathleen Wilcox and Padra Meyer. The winning time was 1:07:55.

The top five relay teams were headed by Chelsea Herron, Michele Hrubesky, Lisa Thomas, Catherine Wagner and Karen Mehrbrodt.  The best time was 1:18:14.
