Almost ten years ago our family acquired Cutting Edge Events. Over the years, we have hosted numerous races at beautiful Lake Sara in Effingham and the Sullivan Civic Center in Sullivan, Illinois. We have had racers from all throughout the United States and Canada participate in our races. We have had the opportunity to meet and encourage beginners and veteran racers. We were amazed by the most dedicated and talented individuals and are fortunate to have developed lasting friendships with many of these people. Over the years our family has changed and grown as well. Our children have graduated from high school and college, have started careers, some have gotten married, some have had children of their own, some have moved out of state, etc. With all the changes we have had in our lives, we have decided it is time for us to move on to our next race in life. After many heartfelt discussions we have realized we have reached our "finish line". It is time to retire our triathlons and Cutting Edge Events. We would like to thank everyone who has supported us over the years - racers, volunteers, sponsors, everyone who has donated anything. Words cannot express how important you have all been to us and how much we appreciate and thank you all! Keep Moving! Godspeed
