Volunteers began arriving at The Legend at Bergamont at 5:00 a.m. on Sunday, May 20th, to begin the registration and course set-up for our Rotary Club of Madison’s Inaugural Tri-Quest Event. We had over 50 Rotary volunteers to help throughout the day, and the location and staff at Bergamont were superb.
By 7:00 am, many participants were on site—some were on the golf course and others getting ready for the 8:00 am 5K Run. The 31K Bicycle Race started by 9:15 a.m. and we also had an afternoon golf event.
Weather cooperated in general, although many of our participants would tell you that it was a little warmer than they preferred and the wind presented more of a challenge for parts of the course.
Registrations totaled 129 for our event, and this was a good level for our first time around. We will provide news on the total amount raised for our Madison Rotary Foundation Synergy Fund in the coming weeks but expect it to be at the $25,000 level.
