The race is intended to promote fitness, increase morale and bring together the EAFB community. The triathlon consisted of a 500-meter swim, a 12-mile bike ride and a 3-mile run.

Dan Wilson, 418th Flight Test Squadron, was the long course winner in the male category; Kathryn Diorio, Air Force Flight Test Center Financial Management, won the women’s short course with Darlene Savage, 412th Test Wing, winning the long course for the female category. Capt. Ryan Carr, 773rd Test Sqadron, was the top male for the short course.
