From Jarrod:

Dear Athletes, Friends and Sponsors,

It is with mixed emotion that I write today to inform you that I am officially stepping down as Race Director of the Vermont Sun Triathlon Series, a position which I have held for the past 14 seasons. After countless hours of consideration and discussions with my family it feels like the right time to pursue other interests and business opportunities. With that said, I do intend to remain active in the endurance events community. Rushton Sports will remain alive and well as I will continue to provide event management consulting services and support to various organizations as we move forward. It has been an amazing run over the past 14 seasons and I can’t thank all of you enough for the support and dedication you have shown during this time.

Vermont Sun has been involved with the series since founding it in 1991 and have always been committed to producing high quality events.
