OUR COACHES

Mike Hermanson

 

Coach Mike started racing triathlons at 16 years old as a way to fight off an eating disorder and depression.  Mike found renewed self-confidence in the sport and within a few years was racing at the front of pack.  He turned professional in 2012 and raced professional through 2015.  His best results were 4th at Ironman Louisville and a few top 5 finishes and several top 10 in the professional division over those 4 years.

Looking for something new, Mike moved on to road racing for part of a season in 2016 and quickly found the challenge of mountain biking.  In 2018, he came back to the triathlon, but this time focusing on off-road triathlon events.

 

In 2020, Mike started producing his own off-road events to start help grow the sport of off road triathlon, duathlon, and trail running.
