Results Breakdown: Echo 2017

Echo sold out this year and was epic for 99% of the field. Sadly, however, there was also a gnarly crash involving Utah Tri Buzz contributor Mary Day, Mari Riser, and at least one other person (unknown to us). Along with the whole tri community we wish everyone involved a super speedy recovery!

We want to also mention the multiple reports of "Good Samaritans" who unselfishly stopped their races to assist those in need, including Chris Bowerbank, Courtney Duckworth, and Emily Blodgett. There has also been an outpouring of support in terms of hospital visits, etc, which has been awesome to see.

This post has more detail behind the results breakdown methodology if you're interested.

Along with other Utah races, we'll use these results towards SWAG ANNOUNCEMENT 2017Remember we take the average of your 3 best local races (overall %) for "Most Improved Triathlete" awards, rankings, etc, so plan your season accordingly!
