The fourth annual Tri Arcti Thon multi sport race was held at Creamers Field Saturday, February 8th. It was the largest field and most competitive with 18 competitors traversing a 4.2 mile loop at Creamers Field three times under different human powered modes of transport. The race consists of a run, followed by a bike ride, and ends with a ski.


In the men's race, Mike Kramer opened up a strong lead with a brisk 28:00 running leg, while Jim Lokken trailed with a time of 29:30. In the next leg, the bike ride, Lokken, a former Tri Arcti Thon winner, reeled in Kramer and the leg finished in a dead tie. It wasn't until the last leg, the ski leg that Lokken was able to put some distance between him and Mike Kramer, finishing in an overall time of 1:14:05 to Kramer's 1:15:19. Wayne Peppler, who had the fastest time on the ski leg, followed close behind Kramer for third with a time of 1:15:33.


The women's race had some switching of standings during the race as well. Kristen Bartecchi Rozell, an experienced marathon runner, was able to open a lead immediately over Roselyn Ressa Smith with a running time 32:56 to Smith's 34:22. The next leg found Smith, last year's Tri Arcti Thon winner, bicycle into the lead with a bike time of 26:50 to Bartecchi's 30:54. She then extended her lead on the ski leg finishing the race in 1:28:45. However, Maria Bray made up time on both the bike and ski leg to move into the second place spot at 1:31:18, with Bartecchi finishing in third with a time of 1:32:32.
