After Saturday night’s 2-0 win over the LA Galaxy and a short amount of sleep, Rapids staffers participated on Sunday morning in the Evergreen Sprint Triathlon, entering five relay teams in the event. Team Rapids 1 was able to capture the victory in the relay division, and the roughly 30 Rapids employees, friends and family in burgundy enjoyed the early-morning festivities.
Team Rapids 1, who also won the Relay division in 2012, consisted of President Tim Hinchey swimming, Director of Marketing & Fan Development Wayne Brant biking, and Director of Media Relations David Lindholm running. Their time of 1:19:56 was about two minutes ahead of a strong co-ed relay team in second place.
Team Rapids 3 crossed the line in 1:47:07, Rapids 2 in 1:55:23, and Rapids 5 in 2:09:20. Somehow, the running leg for the co-ed Team Rapids 4 did not get counted by the chip timer, though the team was on pace to finish under 1:30:00. Regardless of the final time, everyone enjoyed the event, and Rapids Street Team also handed out prizes and giveaways to many participants. The overall individual winners all collected Rapids tickets as part of their prizes.
The other Rapids employees participating on Sunday included: Senior Premium Sales Executive Jordan Allerding, Chief Revenue Officer David Burke, Premium Sales and Service Manager Makenzie Crow, Ticket Service and Marketing Coordinator Christa Dellebovi, Fundraising Coordinator for Kroenke Sports Charities Heather Garcia, Marketing Coordinator Chelsea Hedrick, Manager of Ticket Sales Emily Kilcoyne, and Rapids Academy Manager Gordon Smith.
