Since the 2019 triathlon, Talia has become a full-time college student and Karen has taken on the role of varsity cross country coach. We feel as planners that this event deserves true dedication and an abundance of time. Due to the demands of being a college student and full-time teacher and coach, we feel that this triathlon would not get the full planning attention that it deserves. 

We are proud to see the impact that this triathlon and Kristie has made over the past five years. Our biggest hope is that participants, volunteers, and spectators of the event will continue to take Kristie's spirit with them wherever they go. Whether it's competing in another triathlon, completing a workout, or any physical activity, do it with Kristie's mentality in mind. 

Cheers to five incredible years of the Kristie Yaakoby Memorial Triathlon!


Talia Yaakoby and Karen Kirt.
