The course record for the Annual Steve Braun Memorial Triathlon now belongs to Josh Fountain, a junior at University of Washington and head of the UW triathlon club. The fastest time for a woman is Jennifer Gilbert. The winner in the teams division was comprised of was Suzanne Stevens, Morgan Borman, and Dave Roseberry.

This years race was fun, comfortable, and it was the organizers say “a complete pleasure to be part of this great triathlon. Lots of good energy and excellent effort on the beautiful course.”

While the triathlon grows, it has been able to retain a comfortable atmosphere in honor of Steve Braun. There is a good mix of locals and visitors to the island. While the event offers the opportunity for competition with others and with oneself, it is the beauty and the challenge of the course that makes this triathlon one of the favorites among triathlon participants.

The triathlon raises funds for Friends of Moran State Park and San Juan Preservation Trust, both of which Steve Braun was very involved. Also, funds raised for the Orcas Island Recreation Program go towards providing a variety of excellent year-round opportunities for children, youth, and adults.

The annual Steve Braun Memorial Triathlon happens in Moran State Park on Orcas Island during the last Sunday of Labor Day Weekend.
