NORMAN — The 12th annual Tie Dye Tri attracted more than 250 athletes of all ages Sept. 15 to participate in a triathlon including a 500Y snake swim, 12-mile bike and 5K run.

This annual triathlon hosted at the Cleveland County Family Y drew racers ranging in age from 12 to 65.

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.
