Jesse became addicted to triathlons, running, and a healthy lifestyle during the summer of 2008 during the final sprint to the finish line of his first tri. While running 10 miles at 2 AM through the mountains of Maryland during an ultra-relay race he realized it is a team effort to complete one of these races. He now spends his treadmill runs and spin classes thinking of ways to make Evolve events the complete experience for the athlete and spectator alike. Come spring, he’ll start runngin and biking outside but won’t stop thinking about Evolve. Shoot out an email to Jesse at Jesse.Stehouwer@Tri2Evolve.com with any and all relay team related questions or how your family and friends can get involved with Evolve.
The finer details aren’t taken lightly by this one ... Jarrett brings an energy and enthusiasm to every aspect of race planning and will not let something he is passionate about come up short. Ask him why and you’ll begin to understand - or just watch one of his videos. “Everything else seems to fall in place when you’re passionate about getting the right things done” He’s got a big appetite for getting those around him out of their comfort zones and tackling their goals, which is exactly what he has done with the Wally Man Tri since the inception of the race in 2013! Give Jarrett a shout at Jarrett.Herold@Tri2Evolve.com with any questions about the lake area/course, since he has been frequenting the area for 20+ years.
Matt is serious about going extreme and getting out of his comfort zone. Whether it is dropping the headwall at Tucks on Mt. Washington with a couple boards strapped to his feet or zipping out into the ocean harnessed to his windsurfer, he doesn't hold back. Matt brings the same attitude to everything he does, which makes planning a triathlon with him a wild ride. Knowing that the "not gonna say no" attitude has been a great motto to live by, he hopes he can make the wally man tri a great venue for first timers. Matt has made it his personal commitment to support those who are tackling this for the first time. Reach out to Matt at Matt.Krzywicki@Tri2Evolve.com for motivation, support, or just a kick in the butt.

I had a blast participating in last year’s inaugural Wally Man Triathlon. The atmosphere, the venue, and the energy made for a great event complete with a challenging course. I can’t wait for June 27th to roll around!

The Wally Man was a great, beginner-friendly race that also provides some challenges. It was very spectator-friendly and I can’t wait to do it again next year! Looking forward to seeing what this year’s medal will be!

There are many reasons why you may want to do a Relay. The Relay is perfect for you if:
You are a triathlete that wants to sucker your non-triathlete friends in to a race.
You only want to do one of the three legs. Make a team!
You have never done a triathlon before and want a team support.
We are very supportive of first time triathletes and will be on site race day to explain any questions you may have about how the relay works. Just sign up and we will take it from there!
We have received a lot of requests and we are excited to announce our Fat Tire division, specifically designed for the first time racers without road/tri bikes! This is a great way to introduce the triathlon lifestyle to non-believers. So, grab your mother, father, son, daughter, boyfriend, girlfriend, neighbor or boss and get them signed up! No excuses!
What is Fat Tire?
In order to race in the Fat Tire division, you must have a bike with a minimum of 1.5 inch (width) tires and upright handlebars. There will be both a male and female Fat Tire division for the Sprint distances only. This is a separate division from the age group division so we will be giving awards to the top 3 male and female Fat Tire racers
How to sign up?
When registering for the sprint distance, just check the box that indicates Fat Tire. We will do the rest to make sure you compete against people in the same division. It's as simple as that!
Got bad knees? Don’t like to run? Still want to race? This is the event for you.
You will start with and race with your wave just as though you were a part of the regular triathlon. When it comes to the run, you watch your fellow athletes continue on for yet another leg and you get to kick back and get first dibs at the chocolate milk. But don’t worry… there will be plenty! Who are we kidding? We all know running is the worst part anyway.
