Prime drivers complete triathlon

| October 22, 2012

Seven Prime Inc. drivers competed in the Revolution 3 Olympic distance triathlon relay and aquabike in Anderson, S.C. The triathlon, sponsored by Pilot Flying J, was a 0.9-mile swim, a 24-mile bike ride and a 6.2-mile run. Prime’s Driver Health and Fitness program entered two relay teams in which each driver did one leg of the triathlon. Jeff Schmid also competed in the aqua bike, doing both the swim and bike legs individually.

Matt Young, Jason Davis and Matt Buchanan comprised the “Matt Sandwich” team that finished in 3:37:35. Diane Kehoe, Mario Abramson and David Calhoun comprised the “Prime Allstars” team that finished in 3:58:31. Schmid finished the aquabike in 2:36:13.

This was the first triathlon for the drivers in the relay teams, and they were the first long haul drivers to be a part of the Truckers To Triathlon program created by Dr. George “Bud” Harris.
