Max Performance Triathlon

Fifty hardy men and women braved the freezing temperatures and completed the debut race of the first annual Max Performance Triathlon Series at Clear Creek Park in Shelbyville, Ky, on Sunday.

Mike Stover and Erica Schuler were the overall winners in the Headfirst Performance Services event, which is the first of four scheduled races in the series sanctioned by USA Triathlon. The race included a three-kilometer run, a six-mile bike and a 400-yard swim (in the park’s indoor pool).

Stover, a 35-year-old Owenton, Ky., resident, posted the fastest overall time and beat 32 other men in 42 minutes, 30.8 seconds. He finished 0:47.9 ahead of 22-year-old Richmond, Ky., resident Tim Prewitt.

Schuler, a 31-year-old Morehead, Ky., resident, completed the course in 44:24.4 - more than four minutes ahead of 35-year-old Amy Clark of Mauckport, Ind. - in a field of 17 women.

The next race in the series will be held Sunday, March 5.
