This special event is named in the memory of daughter and mother Tamar and Susie Dvoskin. Tamar was tragically killed by a hit-and-run driver while training on her bike. She was 21 years old. As Tamar had encouraged her mother Susie to work out and they competed together, Susie started this race to honor her daughter’s memory. Sadly, Susie passed away one year ago after battling cancer.
Susie wanted to create a place where girls and women could reach new goals. As a result, this event that is available to a variety of ages and athletic abilities. Women can sign up as an individual and do all three segments alone or sign up as a three-person relay team. The age categories range from 8 to 70 plus years old. There is also a paratriathlon event.
The young girls and women who take place in this triathlon bring a spark of Tamar’s soul along with them – and now they also will carry the memory of Susie.
