More than 190 racers, ranging in age from 3 to 66, took part in the Bootlegger Super Spring Triathlon at Veterans Memorial Park on Sept. 11.
The event was hosted by Five Star Event & Timing.
Athena O'Dell and Seth Gibree took home overall first place in the women's and men's divisions, respectively.
Lowell Starr, who coordinated the event with his wife Meredith, labeled the race a big success.
"We heard back from a bunch of athletes, just tons of e-mails, saying they had a great time and want to come back next year," Starr said. "We've already got it on the calendar for 2012."
Volunteers arrived at the park as early as 6 a.m. for the event, which was held to benefit the Dawson County Parks and Recreation Youth Sports Scholarship program and the Dawsonville Racers Swim Team.
Starr said the event raised about $1,700 for the two programs
The first wave of racers dove into the swimming pool at 8 a.m. to begin the first leg of the race, before transitioning to biking, followed by the running leg of the event.
Racers competed in 30 divisions divided by age and sex.
