“We wanted to offer the added benefit of a 5k and 10k run in each event to encourage participation for anyone interested in improving your fitness level from just starting to finishing your first race”, stated Tammy.


The start and finish for all of the events will be Prairie Creek Reservoir with a field limited the first year for each race. “We will keep the first events limited to measure the impact of athletes on the course and review all safety measures before allowing the fields to grow in the coming years”, stated Steven.


Muncie is an ideal location for all of these events with an outstanding location in the central mid-west, hotel accommodations, legendary reputation of events at one of the premier multi-sport locations at Prairie Creek Reservoir and a course second to none in America.


“We are excited to host these events at a location that is familiar, low trafficked and on outstanding roads for biking and running”, said Steven Tomboni. “We have designed a perfect 20k bike-loop around the Reservoir that is exactly what athletes look for in an event.”


A veteran race organizing committee of local athletes has been formed to handle race day operations, volunteers are needed and sponsorships are available as athletes come from all over the country and the world. Most of the events will be early in the day to accommodate all the residents that enjoy the lake. “We expect to have a serious economic impact on our community with the number of guests expected each weekend spending travel dollars on hotels, food and much more”


The October event may have even more excitement as the company is in final negotiations with an international sports company to bring another event to Muncie.

Currently the event will be called, MuncieMan, since it is a long course duathlon consisting of a 10krun/60k bike and a final 10k run. “Even the Pro athletes we have told of the proposed course think it will very difficult and extremely challenging”, said Steven. More details will be announced.


“We will be Americas Hometown for Triathlon and Duathlon”, states Steven and Tammy
