PIMA – The 11th annual Tri Community Tri went off seemingly without a hitch Saturday morning, as organizers, volunteers, town administrators, law enforcement, and sponsors were welcomed with beautiful weather as they came together to put on a great family-friendly event in Pima.


“We could not do it without you,” said race co-director Angela Paull. “Our volunteers make this event happen.”


The race was first begun by Cherla Ramsey, and after she moved from the area Brian and Angela Paull took up the mantle and have organized it for the past four years. As well as being a fun, family event, the race is a registered nonprofit that benefits the community as proceeds are poured back into the town. Over the previous three years, the event has poured $5,500 back into the town of Pima.

PIMA – A blustery morning and a last-second course change didn’t stop the 85 racers from competing and finishing the Sprint and/or Mini courses of the 10th annual Tri Community Tri in Pima on Saturday.


The race, which was begun by Cherla Ramsey, is now run by Brian and Angela Paull, who took up the mantle after Ramsey moved from the area. The Paulls said they took over the event because they loved it so much and didn’t want to see it end as well as it being a benefit to the community.
