Goodyear Police Compete in Ironman Arizona

 

 

(GOODYEAR, AZ) - Goodyear Police Officer Gene Hindman, Detective Greg Garner and Greg's wife Jenifer participated with about 2000 other athletes from around the world in Ironman Arizona in April.

 

The competition consisted of a 2.4-mile swim in Tempe Town Lake, followed by a 112-mile bicycle ride, then a 26.2-mile run. Athletes were allowed 17 hours to complete the entire 140.6 miles and Hindman and the Garners all finished well under that time.

 

This race is sponsored by the same group that sponsors the World Championship Ironman race on Kona, Hawaii; and Ironman Arizona is a qualifier for the Kona race. This year was Jenifer Garner's third Arizona Ironman race, and her name was drawn this year in the lottery to go to the World Championship Ironman race at Kona in October.
