Welcome Ruth Sawkins, 2015 Race Director!
Owner and Founder of Rufus Racing Multi Sport Team Named 2015 TRIFEST for MS Race Director
The Rampy MS Research Foundation is thrilled to announce that Ruth Sawkins and Rufus Racing have partnered with our family to manage the 4th Annual TRIFEST for MS triathlon festival in Bentonville, Arkansas.
I admired Ruth when we first met year’s ago when I first attended one of her earlier Summer Round-up triathlon events,” Scott Rampy, our President and co-founder said. “Her passion for the sport of triathlon combined with her encouraging, energetic personality makes her the perfect person to take the 4th Annual TRIFEST for MS to the next level and beyond.
Ruth has been an avid competitor in the race in the past and served as our co-race director in 2013. Ruth is not only an accomplished certified race director, triathlon coach and age group competitor, she is the owner and founder of Rufus Racing Multi Sport Team. Based in Joplin, Missouri Rufus Racing is a team with 240 members and counting. Sawkins and her husband Phillip have three children.
At last year’s TRIFEST for MS, Sawkins spearheaded her team to defend their tri club championship from 2013 and competed herself in the Trifesta category. Rufus Racing was awarded the distinguished fundraiser award for contributing over $4,500 to our registration revenue by bringing 60 team members to the event last year.
Please join us as we welcome Ruth to the team and plan for a spectacular 4th Annual TRIFEST for MS, coming up Sept. 5 and 6, 2015. Registration opens April 1.
GO RUTH GO!!!!!!!
