October Club Meeting: Mike Reilly Wed Oct 26th

on . Posted in Club Meetings

Were super excited to bring you another killer club meeting! Mike Reilly (the Voice of Ironman) will be our special guest this month. Mike was just inducted into the Ironman Hall of Fame two weeks ago in Kona!

So grab a friend, bring your appetite and get prepared for a BIG Raffle, killer food and a special evening as Mike shares with us stories from the 99 Ironman races he has announced starting back in 1989!

Mike is one of the most popular race announcers and has been the main announcer at the Ironman World Championships in Kona since 1989. He began his involvement in triathlon as a participant in 1979 and is still at it.

Mike announced seven Ironman events last year, along with several other marquee short-course events. He is one of the founders and vice president of The Active Network Inc., which houses Active.com, one of the largest participatory sport websites.

Reilly began his career in sport after teaching special education for two years. He and his brother founded and ran The Swift Pair running shoe stores in Southern California and Arizona. In the early 1980s, he joined with Murphy Reinschreiber and Neil Finn to form a race production company called Road Promotions Inc. He and his wife, Rose, founded Race Place Magazine in 1984, and it is still the top regional source for event listings and entry forms in Southern California. And he founded MJR Sports in 1996, a company that consults to the industry and sells sponsorships for events around the country.
