Triathlon Packet Pickup: So Easy Kids Can Do It

Triathlons are about pushing yourself to new levels of endurance — and that’s true whether you’re an athlete or a triathlon director!

The triathlon industry has seen a lot of ups and downs, just like the terrain of the IRONMAN® 70.3 Buffalo Springs Lake Triathlon in Lubbock, Texas. Its hills, legendary wind, and west Texas summer heat put it among the most challenging of 70.3s.

But like its owners, Mike and Marti Greer, who have been running the event for 27 years, the event persists in being an important choice for athletes seeking IRONMAN®-qualifying times.

The Greers have gone the distance in other ways, too. Find out why they’ve stayed with ACTIVE for 17 years.
