Volunteers Sought to Support Ironman in Frankfort

Organizers of the Ironman 70.3 Michigan competition being held this weekend in Frankfort are looking for additional volunteers to help support the event.
A number of community groups are helping to staff the event, but organizers say they could use more support. They will staff aid stations, registration, transition areas, registration tables and a variety of other areas to make the competition run smoothly.
“It’s an opportunity to be an important part of one of the biggest events of the year in Frankfort,” said Volunteer Director, Janice Davidson. “You witness top athletes in peak performance and it’s fun to be part of the excitement.”
Top athletes from around the world are coming to Benzie County Sunday for Ironman. Racers will be challenged by three events starting with a 1.2-mile swim, a 56-mile bike race and a 13.1-mile run. In all, they will travel 70.3 miles from start to finish.
Now in its third year in Frankfort, Ironman 70.3 Michigan has drawn high praise from participants. “Athletes are eager to return,” said Trevor Tkach (Tah-Koch), President of Traverse City Tourism. “They are drawn to the natural beauty of the region and the opportunity to challenge themselves next to other top athletes.”
