Huge congratulations goes out to Joe Putos, former race director of the K-Town Triathlon on his induction to the Kingston and District Sports Hall of Fame on Friday May 6.

Joe started as a volunteer in 1984, and performed various roles in his 30 year involvement with the race, including the aforementioned race director role for 25 years!

As quoted from the Kingston Whig-Standard article “Kingston’s Putos ‘races’ into hall of fame.

“If I hadn’t been chief pin-head, which I was the first year, would I have ever been race director? It’s one of those serendipitous things. You take advantage of some opportunities. You have no idea how they will turn out.” said Putos. “All of a sudden I ended up as race director. It was great, though, because there were so many around to help. I’ve said it so many times: the original race directors set such a high standard for organizing the race that if you followed that standard you could not go wrong. I think that was fortuitous.”
