The Longmont Chamber of Commerce graciously hosted a ribbon cutting for SERVPRO Longmont.
Our ribbon cutting was a great event. We were surrounded by supportive business owners, our families, and the great team here at SERVPRO Longmont. It's such an amazing community that we get to live in and serve. Many conversations we had with fellow business owners was about how to get more involved in Longmont's thriving culture.
Resources to Handle Floods and Storms
When storms hit Longmont, we can scale our resources to handle a large storm or flooding disaster. We can access equipment and personnel from a network of 1,650 Franchises across the country and elite Disaster Recovery Teams that are strategically located throughout the United States. One of the very teams is located just south of us in Boulder. We are proud to work closely with the Greater Boulder franchise and know that we can collaborate with them to provide the very best service no matter the size of the loss.
The Longmont Triathlon is coming up on June 2nd and 3rd.
A Brief History of the Longmont Triathlon
In 1981, the first Longmont Triathlon started with 56 participants.
The event was held as 3 separate events. The run was a 10K that started at 9am, the 25 mile bike race started at noon and the 1000 meter swim began at 3pm - truly an all day event! There were no transition times, but the times for all three individual events were added together to determine the winner. Overall winners that year were Patti McNitt and Dennis Wilson, both in the 20-29 age category. The cost for the race, which included a 50/50 t-shirt and refreshments, was $12. The oldest age group offered was 40 and over.
This format continued for one more year with the bike changing from 25 miles to 19 in the second year. In subsequent years, the race was combined so all events were consecutive. In addition, the course has seen numerous changes most dictated by road construction and the growth of Longmont on the East side of town.
The Longmont Triathlon is becoming a historic event in Longmont and, with a 7-0 vote in 2014, the Longmont City Council unanimously supported continuing the tradition.
