The Mission
An event facilitated by FSUMC to create positive tangible impact to missions in our community through the good deeds and praise of our father in heaven.

The Event
The triathlon is held on the beautiful course of Lake Cammack Park & Marina. This sprint triathlon consists of three events: 750-meter lake swim, 15 mile bike, and 5K off-road run. It is a very well attended event, with the record high of participants being approximately 500, approximately 200 volunteers, various vendors, and many spectators!

The Why
The main goal of this event is to raise money for missions that are supported by Front Street UMC. Some prior and current Missions can be found at

The Who
A major goal of the triathlon is to help our Church to be a light in our community, to show, by our example, Christ’s love. As Jesus commands us in Matthew 5:16: “let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven”. This event requires support from the Church and the wider community of Burlington, and through interactions that we have with businesses, individuals and other churches, we are ambassadors for Christ.
