Adam Konczewski, Duathlon co-chair
and Sartell Apple Duathlon Committee
As committee members of the Sartell Apple Duathlon, we want to acknowledge those who helped make the longest multisport event in Minnesota a success in 2014. A special thanks to all the volunteers. As our oldest competitor, 90-year-old Bob Powers said, “You made me feel like a celebrity!” Our number one goal was to ensure the safety of our community and the athletes. The City of Sartell, Mayor Joe Perske, City Administrator/Finance Director Mary Degiovanni and the Sartell City Council, especially Council Member Amy Braig-Lindstrom, played an instrumental role by approving road closures. The Sartell Police Department, especially Sgt. Kelly Mader, and the Stearns County Sheriff Department controlled traffic. Sartell Public Works Department, especially Brad Borders, donated equipment and cleaned roads. The Sartell Middle School, especially Custodian Mark Hedstrom, provided a wonderful venue. We truly thank the Sartell community for all you have done because the 32nd Sartell Apple Duathlon is only possible with the support of our generous sponsors and community.
