Palmer Competes in World Championship 70.3 Triathlon, Prepares for Ironman 70.3 Kenting 

Julie “J.P.” Palmer, a professor in Webster’s Department of Management, competed in the World Championship 70.3 Triathlon in Lahti, Finland on Aug. 26. She raced amongst 2,700 women on Saturday, and 3,300 men on Sunday.  
Palmer qualified for the World Championship 70.3 Triathlon by winning second place in her age group during a March 2020 triathlon held in Campeche, Mexico. The COVID-19 pandemic had delayed the World Championship race until this year.  
The 70.3 distance is a “half-ironman distance”, consisting of a 12-mile swim, a 56-mile bike ride, and a half-marathon (13.1 miles).  Palmer placed 147th out of 162 participants in her age group with a 43:40 swim, 3:08 bike and a 2:48 run.  
Palmer is currently preparing for her next venture: Ironman 70.3 Kenting, which will be held this October in Kenting, Taiwan.
