In Memory of Anne Viviani

For decades, Anne Viviani was not only Arlington’s most highly accomplished triathlete but one of the best in the world, winning multiple national and world titles. She represented the U.S. in 37 world championships and three times won the long-course world championship. She won multiple triathlon, duathlon, and aquathlon medals and nine national championships in triathlon and duathlon. Anne died tragically on April 9, 2018, while driving home from the USA National Duathlon Championship race in South Carolina with Donn. A deer struck their vehicle, killing her instantly. Anne and Donn had four children, Anne, Donn, Will, and Tony, and many grandchildren, some of whom may be in attendance at our race.
