The Antigua & Barbuda Tinman Rohr Triathlon was conceived in 2011 by four triathletes; three Antiguan men: Andre Simon, Wayne Henry and Rory Butler along with Jonathan Rohr –a third semester AUA medical student. The athletes together decided they wanted to start a challenging event on the island that would inspire people and attract some of the world’s best athletes to our shores while offering a fun and exciting way for people to accomplish a half-iron distance triathlon. The first event was held in January 2012.
Sadly, on November 25, 2011 Jonathan Rohr died in his sleep and was posthumously diagnosed to have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) – a genetic heart disease, which affects one in 500 people and has been known to result in sudden death in extreme athletes. Jonathan had been training heavily in anticipation to compete in the first race but tragically never had that opportunity.
What was once the Antigua & Barbuda Tinman Triathlon is now dedicated to the memory and legacy of Jonathan and has become The AUA Tinman Rohr Triathlon for which AUA is the title sponsor. This year the event takes place at the beautiful Morris Bay on Saturday March 28th commencing at 9am. Volunteers are needed for a variety of tasks.
