John Critchfield

Class Year: 1992
News: On Sunday, September 27, 2015, John Critchfield '92 completed his first Ironman triathlon in Chattanooga, TN. The Ironman triathlon is a 140.6 mile race which consists of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike ride and running a full marathon (26.2 miles). Chattanooga is a little different in that the bike portion of the race is 116 miles rather than the traditional 112. Regardless, contestants are given 17 hours to complete the distance. As a first timer, Critchfield merely hoped to complete the distance in the provided time. He is happy to report that he was able to complete the event in 13:54:27. He gives credit to my loving wife, Theresa Critchfield and says, "Without her support I could not have stayed the course and completed this event."
