Best in the West Triathlon

Awards/Age Groups

 

We hand make all of our awards, one by one in the weeks leading up to the event. Staci and the Posse work a lot of love into these babies! Hopefully, come race day, you will be heading home with some western themed swag!

Please note, we do not mail awards. If you can not stay for awards, please come to the awards table before you take off.
