Winners of the triathlon are divided by gender and age. In the men’s division, first place went to Travis Newton, of Moore, with a time of 00:59:20, with Scott Fisher following in second and James Seagraves taking third.

In the women’s division, Shelly Coleman, of Oklahoma City, won first place with a time of 1:11:57, followed by Emily Hufnagel in second and Catherine Isom taking third. The list of race results can be found at ymcanorman.org/tie-dye-tri.

All proceeds raised by the Tie Dye Tri go directly to the Cleveland County Family YMCA’s financial assistance program.
