    Bob Martin: President

    I have been a member of PTC for the past seven years. When I first joined the club, I found a group of people that were eager to be part of my personal triathlon experience. They were part of helping each member achieve their individual goals, whatever they were, first sprint, Olympic, or Ironman races. And before I realized, I had developed a group of what I have considered, extended family.

    This became very clear to me after I moved to California for several years. I would see club members racing at events in California and it was like I was still in Phoenix. I then developed a sister triathlon club, grown in the image of PTC and spread the values, along with the spirit of PTC, as the President of that club.

    Fate and desire brought me back to Phoenix and to PTC. I am humbled and honored to represent PTC as President. My background includes racing triathlon events for the past 17 years. I have at least 15 Escape from Alcatraz swims and races, Wildflower, Vineman, countless sprints, Olympic distances, and all six Ironman Arizona races.

    My goals are; to maximize the value our members get in return for their dues and exceed the expectations our sponsors have for their investment in our club. I will focus on growing membership and ensuring each member enjoys the PTC experience. Our best advertising and marketing tools are all of us, as ambassadors of this great organization. I will do my best to promote the core values of this club and I ask each of you to join me and continue in that mission. No matter what we do, we must, Swim-Bike-Run-And Have FUN!

    Andy Gates: Vice President

    I joined the Phoenix Triathlon Club back in 2007 after I did my first relay sprint triathlon.  I came from a swimming background in high school and college. I remember the energy that the sport brought.  Since then, I have done several sprint/Olympic distance races, two half Ironman races (Oceanside and Wildflower) and one full Ironman race (Arizona 2009). 

    Tiffany and I joined PTC in 2007 due to the visibility and support it provided athletes in the community.  It has been quite the progression of going from a sprint distance to a full Ironman.  We are grateful to the guidance that our club has provided me and others.
    I look forward to serving as the Activities Director coordinating monthly run/rides and swims.  Most of all, I look forward to giving back to the sport what it gave me as a new club member. Feel free to email me with any other  ideas or suggestions you may wish to see on the club calendar.  We will see you out there!
