KTSM 9 News Announced as Official Media Partner of Mighty Mujer Triathlon

El Paso, TX – Mighty Mujer Triathlon is going live for the second year on El Paso’s NBC Affiliate station, KTSM 9 News.  The all-female swim-bike-run will be broadcast live on April 13 with simultaneous live coverage on KTSM.com.  Mighty Mujer (“mujer” means “woman” in Spanish) has introduced thousands of women to their first race.  The challenging course and strong volunteer and community support have made it a favorite for new and experienced racers alike, many of whom make significant lifestyle changes in the process.

KTSM 9 News is the Official Media Sponsor of Mighty Mujer Triathlon, including live television broadcast of the race.  “This exciting community event highlights the best of El Paso. It’s another way that KTSM is putting local first,” says KTSM 9 News Director Victor Venegas.

Since its start in 2012, the event has grown in popularity and expanded into a series that includes Mighty Mujer races in Tucson and Miami. With partners throughout the community and organized training clinics, the race has created a safe, fun, and supportive environment for women to become triathletes. The race has become an icon for women’s empowerment in El Paso.

“Mighty Mujer Triathlon participants are women from all walks of life, from ages 12 to 72, all professions and backgrounds.  Some are tackling Mighty Mujer as their first athletic endeavor, and others are looking for their next racing challenge,” says Gabriela Gallegos, President and Race Director for Race El Paso.   “They all cross the finish line knowing they conquered the challenging course.  For many, it becomes a part of their lives, they continue a healthy lifestyle.”

Mighty Mujer Triathlon will be broadcast live on television on April 13 from 7:30 to 8:30am on KTSM 9 News with simultaneous coverage on KTSM.com.
