Description

** Unknown situation with COVID-19 locally and extent of community immunity may again alter plans for the May 2021 event**  We think an indoor pool swim may be hazardous in Spring 2021 before full deployment of immunizations.  We will start planning to host a duathlon (5 km run - 12.5 mile bike - 1 mile run) if university and local sheriff allows our permits. If infection rate low, we might sneak in the swim but few options for training for swimming.  We will not open registration until we meet with university officials in late Jan or early February and establish USAT sanctioning. We will honor all the registrations deferred from 2020.

Normally, Ordinary Mortals Triathlon (OMT) is a reverse order sprint distance (5 km run, 12.5-mile bike, 300-yard pool swim) triathlon for all us "Ordinary Mortals" - from the first time triathlete to more competitive triathletes on a fun and challenging course. 

Bring the kids for the youth triathlon, Mini Mortals Triathlon, after the adult race.   This is a family friendly event often attracting several families of two or three generations racing together the same day!

Ordinary Mortals® History 

Dr. Steven Jonas first used the term "Ordinary Mortals" in his 1986 book Triathloning for Ordinary Mortals (New York: Norton, 1986, 2nd ed., 2006), the first-ever book for beginners in the sport.  (Subsequently, he obtained a registered trademark for “Ordinary Mortals.”)  He has a new book on duathlon only, Duathlon Training and Racing for Ordinary Mortals®: Getting Started and Staying with It, (Guilford, CT: Globe Pequot Press/FalconGuides, 2012). From 2013 he will be serializing his book 101 Ideas and Insights for Triathletes and Duathletes  (Monterey, CA; Coaches choice, 2011) on the USA-Triathlon website.  He has also worked closely with Coach George Dallam, Ph.D. on two of George’s books, Championship Triathlon Training (Champaign, IL, Human Kinetics, 2008) and the forthcoming Coaching and Teaching Triathlon (Monterey, CA: Coaches Choice, 2013). His website, www.ordinarymortals.net details his work of his over 30 years of training, racing and helping others in triathlon/duathlon and exercising regularly for health. With his permission we are honored to continue using the term “Ordinary Mortals®” for our Triathlon.

Michael Orendorff, the original race director of the Ordinary Mortals Triathlon (OMT) here in Pueblo was inspired by Dr. Jonas work and wanted to bring the multi-sport to Southern Colorado.  The original cofounders of OMT, Herb Brockman and Don Thompson, were employed at the Regional Center where the original race was hosted from 1987 to 2006.  Within a few years, the race became a respected annual race event by the YMCA of Pueblo until 2006. In 2016, Don Thompson returned to volunteering with OMT as our most excellent Bike Course captain!

Gwen Steves, a local triathlete and swim coach had fond memories as a teenage volunteer counting laps for the early OMT events and worked to bring back the OMT along with the youth Mini Mortals race in 2012.  Due to increased traffic in Pueblo West, the returning race was held at CSU-Pueblo campus and the airport along with an Event Management class at CSU-Pueblo in 2012.  Starting in 2013, the event has been organized and run by the Southern Colorado Triathlon Club which is part of the long standing Southern Colorado Runners club.
