February 6, 2024

Nashville, TN – [February 6, 2024] /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Baptist Health, central Alabama’s largest healthcare system, has proudly signed on as the Title Sponsor for the upcoming Tri Montgomery triathlon, scheduled for May 4 in Montgomery, Alabama. This marks the eagerly anticipated return of the event, formerly known as the Capital of Dreams Triathlon, which last took place in 2019. Magic Sports, a leading organizer of triathlons and running races across the Southeast, is producing the event and features the Baptist Health Tri Montgomery race as the kickoff of its 2024 triathlon race season.

Tommy McKinnon, Vice President of Community Engagement at Baptist Health, emphasized the synergy between the event’s goals and Baptist Health’s mission, saying, “Baptist Health has always been at the forefront of teaching our community the importance of reducing illness and disease risks through healthier living. Sponsoring Tri Montgomery is a natural extension of our commitment to preventive care and encouraging everyone to live their best life. We’re excited to support an event that not only aligns with our values but also brings the community together in the pursuit of health and wellness.”

The Baptist Health Tri Montgomery race will feature a variety of distances and formats to accommodate athletes of all levels, from beginners to seasoned triathletes. Those participating in the triathlon will once again have the opportunity to jump off the famous Montgomery landmark, the Harriett II Riverboat, for the start of the swim. New to the race this year is the addition of the Duathlon run-bike-run event, a popular event for those not wanting to swim.

Joe Fleenor, President of Magic Sports, shared his excitement over the sponsorship, stating, “We are thrilled to have Baptist Health join us as the Title Sponsor for Tri Montgomery. We believe this partnership will elevate the event to new heights and offer an exceptional experience for all participants.”
