Patrick McGee, an industry veteran in triathlon and multisport, is taking the helm as the new St Anthony’s Triathlon Manager and Race Director. McGee will lead the triathlon as it prepares for its 37th annual race weekend, to be held from April 24-26, 2020.
Patrick McGee is no stranger to this event as he has coordinated various aspects of race operations for many years. He brings more than 10 years of experience in event operations across more than 250 multisport and endurance events including youth triathlons and road races from 5K to marathons.
He holds a bachelor’s degree in communications from the University of South Florida in Tampa, and is ‘known in the Tampa Bay area for leading events with high levels of participant satisfaction.’
“It’s such an honour to be directing a race that I have admired and been associated with for years,” said McGee. “For 2020, we are eager to further enrich the weekend experience for all competitors – from the kids to the amateurs to the pros – as well as the community. Our goal is to raise the bar each year to create one of the best race experiences in the world.”
McGee is replacing Susan Daniels, who led the race for 10 years and is well known throughout the multi-sport community.
The St Anthony’s Triathlon is open to all levels of athletes. For children and novice adults, the Meek & Mighty Triathlon is set for April 25. The main triathlon, for both Olympic and Sprint distance races, runs on April 26.
