Streamline Events, a race company with several triathlon events in the Northeast as well as the Draft Legal Challenge events in Florida, has launched the Hero Triathlon Series. It's a new Olympic Distance Triathlon Series developed to show respect to the Military men and women who have fought and continue to fight for our freedom.
The new Hero Triathlon Series from Race Directors Jamie Ranney and Bill Burnett was built to create a powerful, prestigious, and exclusive fundraising vehicle for groups affiliated with veterans. The initial launch features two new triathlon events on the triathlon calendar in the Northeast, the Nantucket Hero Triathlon in July and the Cape Cod Hero Triathlon in September. Organizers hope to take the Hero Triathlon series to various parts of the country and have other events in the series.
The initial goal is to support and raise funds for the Women's Veterans Network of Massachusetts.

Nantucket's long and storied history as the whaling capital of the world, combined with historic architecture, cobblestone streets, vibrant waterfront, pristine beaches, clean waters and beautiful moorlands will provide a perfect backdrop to a race inspired to give back to the very people who have fought for our freedom.
