Top Female Finisher and Masters Winning Husband among 246 Participants
Nearly 250 athletes competed in the inaugural Quantico Tri held today aboard Marine Corps Base Quantico, VA. Runners faced not only the challenge of competing in a triathlon, but also braved continual rain as they completed sprint triathlon distances of a 400-meter pool swim, 9-mile cycle course, and 5K run.
Active duty Marine Lt. Col. Kolter Miller of Dumfries, VA, placed first overall for males with a combined time of 52:30. He completed the swim in 6:54, cycle in 24:44 and ran nearly 5 minute-miles to complete the 5K in 17:00.
“It’s an honor being an active duty Marine aboard the base and keeping the win here on Quantico,” says Miller. “I’m shocked (to be the winner)! It seems like some of the other competitors were going a lot faster.”
Kenneth Parisi of McKinney, TX, was the second place men’s finisher with a time of 52:34 and third place Douglas Dudgeon of Stafford, VA, completed the event in 52:57.
Leading the women was Bethann Sliwa of Washington D.C. who finished with a combined time of 58:23. Sliwa completed the swim in 8:20, rode through nine miles in 28:14, and rounded out the event with a 21:49 5K run.
“It was nerve wracking to bike in the rain,” says Sliwa. “I’m thrilled and surprised to have won!”
“It’s great for our marriage to train and compete together,” says first place Masters Male award winner Michael Sliwa, Bethann’s husband. “We can push each other harder.”
Second place women’s finisher Jane Kelly-Langford completed the event with a combined time of 59:11, followed by third place finisher Zoraida Rodriguez-Keeton of Upper Marlboro, MD, who finished the Quantico Tri in 1:01:06.
After completing the inaugural event, female masters champion Brenda Barrera of Williamsburg, VA, said, “The event was super-organized. Even though the conditions were tough, everyone rallied around to motivate each other on the course.” Barrera is a member of the USA Triathlon Women’s Committee which serves as a resource for women competing in triathlons. “It was another great MCM event.”
Other notable finishers included federal law enforcement officer Josh Klaus of Spotsylvania, VA, who completed all three legs wearing a 10-pound regulation Kevlar ballistics vest in support of Project Active Armor, a program developed to promote increased usage of protective vests by law enforcement officers. Klaus finished with an overall time of 1:09:09
“It was great for a beginning triathlete,” says Klaus. “The pool swim was controlled, but my vest gained five pounds in the water.”
