With several hundred competitors enrolled in various categories, the event was a great success for the city’s Parks & Recreation Department, the recipient of the funds from the registration and sponsorships.
The Rotary Club of Carpinteria volunteered to get water out to the racers during the sprint competition, on an unusually warm day.
Thanks to volunteers Dave Durflinger, Harry Harper, Erin and Megan Durflinger, Michael Ensign and Lin Graf for handing off water to the participants, as they whizzed by their station.
