Race on the Rock would like to thank the community, participants, and sponsors; Western Wyoming Community College, Sinclair, The Sweetwater County Travel and Tourism Board, and Rock Springs Professional Firefighters. It was a beautiful day filled with fun, friendly competition, and great sportsmanship.

“I have been in about a dozen races over the past year and the take-home message is clear, find something you like and do your best.  This has changed the way I approach my life, my work, and the people I meet in a positive, fulfilling way. Triathlons may not be for everyone, but I encourage people to try one. And if not a triathlon, try something new. The rewards are just waiting for you,” said Brian Burnes of Western Wyoming Community College. Burnes finished second in the Olympic race last weekend.
