    I'm Brazilian living in miami since 2006. I joined the south beach run club in 2010 and it's been a lot of running since then. I'm part of most run clubs in town, very active and since 2013 I'm running official races.

  • Markus Boesch

    Good health and fitness is a life-long pursuit - one that I have dedicated my life to. Combining a formal education with my background as a second degree black belt in Karate,  a competitive cyclist, triathlete and a former collegiate and professional athlete, my quest is to share my knowledge and experience to educate my people in the importance of clean living, balanced, mindful living, a healthy diet and the value of daily exercise.
  • Erin Cernuda

    My name is Erin Cernuda. I love the outdoors and athletics. I am originally from Chicago, Illinois but relocated to Miami, Florida for college. A few years ago, I volunteered at a few triathlons and it looked like so much fun! After having twin girls and starting an amazing family, I did my first triathlon. After that first race, I was hooked. Our family loves hiking, rock climbing, gardening and being active.
  • Amy Chu

    The life of a nurse is extremely stressful and exercising regularly can be almost impossible. As a nurse practitioner, you are an ambassador of good health and exercising should be a top priority for all. The last year I competed in multiple 5K's, Olympic Distance Triathlons, and several half marathons. I am involved with many local running stores in South Florida and have met other great athletes in the community either at race events, run clubs, or just in passing on the Key Biscayne Bridge.
  • Steven Ray

    I am from Tampa, FL. and got into triathlons in 2013 the same way many do -  as a way to get back in shape and to push myself to my limits. Also like many others, I was a novice (or worse) in multiple disciplines when I started. Along the way I have had amazing coaches help me learn proper form and technique, I have learned about the incredible limits the human body can achieve, and best of all I have made great friendships that will last a lifetime. In short - Triathlons have change my life. 
  • Zsanette Olah

    I'm originally from Budapest, Hungary, but I am now a permanent resident in USA. I served 6 years active duty in the US Army and when I got out I decided to move back to Orlando and start cycling.   In 2015, I decided to start triathlons and did a lot of charity rides on my bike.  I also rode 100 miles to find the cure for Cystic Fibrosis, Tour Latino and also Tour de Cure for diabetes.  I love yoga, traveling, coffee and cats. 

  • Susan Haag

    I am a huge fan of Multirace & their spectacular racing experience!  I'm a 51 year old distance junkie from Jax, FL.  I hold the world record for the female with the most completed Ironman distance triathlons- at 101.  I have been doing triathlon since 1990 & am the only woman in the 300 Century Club at USAT.  I have been doing irons since May of 2002.  I have done Ultraman Florida and I must say that has been my most surreal spectacular event!  In 2012 I did 18 irons in one year & made the NBC Broadcast of Kona in the last 5 minutes with the biggest smile on my Legacy Slot face! In my more productive moments, I represent the State of FL on the USAT Board of Directors and sit on the International Triathlon Union's Womens Committee.  I also sit on our local running club Board, JTC Running.

  • Vicki Edwards

    Triathlon for me has become a way of life. For the past 10 years, I have competed in the sport of triathlon at every distance (6 x IM competitor, countless half, Olympic and sprint distances) and have been fortunate enough to represent Team USA in Beijing China at the Olympic Distance.

    From Sprint to Ironman, I truly find if you “tri” you will succeed. The races are only part of the success – there is the training along the way...physical, mental, nutritional...meeting many new people who are so helpful, finding your limits and then surpassing them, doing things you never thought you would do, and then doing them all over again. It is a wonderful community to belong to and you will find this community wherever you travel. I consider myself very blessed to be part of this amazing sport!

  • Andy Bohl

    Scuba diving brought me to Florida were I competed in triathlon for a brief time until scuba diving became a priority. I am now a Firefighter for Monroe County Fire Rescue, and part time scuba instructor. I returned to triathlon at the Miami Man Speedway 2015. It was supposed to be a one time return to triathlon but the event was such a positive experience that I continued with five more events in 2015 and six events in 2016. In the future I want to continue to compete but would like to contribute to the sport through coaching as well. HAPPY RACING!!!

  • Martha Hincapie

    Martha Hincapie was born and raised in Colombia. Her passion for triathlon started in 2015, when she joined RW training triathlon club in Wellington, FL. Previously to triathlon, Martha had zero experience any sport, however, with much determination and persistence with her training she finished her first competition, Multirace sprint in Singer Island, Riviera Beach. After that, she was addicted to the experience and got herself into a very committed training. She had completed several international, half and full distance races. This year she is planning on racing more internationals, half distance and one full distance race. Besides swimming, biking and running, she loves going to the gym, to the beach, cooking, watching movies and dancing. She does not have a favorite food because she likes it all and during her long rides she only thinks about her next big meal.

  • Tony Presley

  • Ryan Baril

    For years Ryan's best friend had been hounding him to run a triathlon with him, but as a former ice hockey and lacrosse player he really didn't think it would be up his alley. In May 2016 he finally gave in and raced a sprint distance tri with his friend, and hasn't looked back since. With 2 more races in 2016 and 7+ planned for 2017 Ryan is hooked. His day job as VP of a Mortgage Company gives him great flexibility to train, #racehappy and meet other athletes! Follow him on instagram @ryanbaril
