This year, we’re excited to offer a Draft Legal Super Sprint, similar to the 2024 USA Triathlon Multisport National Championships, which is coming to Omaha in June. Participants may register for the Draft Legal Triathlon and race in the Sprint Triathlon on the same day if they choose. They, however, would need to register for the other distance separately.

About Ethan

Ethan Anderson Rhodig tragically left this world on June 14, 2020, while bike training in preparation for the Cornhusker State Games triathlon. He was an avid cyclist, runner, swimmer, and all-around fitness fanatic. In his 20 short years on earth, he accomplished more than most. Attending High School in East Lyme, CT, Ethan was captain of both the ELHS Crew and Fencing Teams. He was an inspiring leader and role model, making indelible marks as both a champion Foil Fencer and Crew Rower. He also was a masterful slalom water skier and snow skier.

Ethan was not only an accomplished athlete. He was a gifted musician, mastering acoustic and electric guitar and drums by middle school. Ethan was competitive in all aspects of his life, never settling or satisfied with anything less than the best.

Back in 2019, Ethan leaped into the world of sprint triathlons, with his cousin Chad Anderson cheering him on and showing him the ropes. Ethan’s unstoppable spirit, grit, and natural flair set him on a path of amazing achievements. To honor Ethan’s memory, his family established and sponsors the Ethan A. Rhodig Memorial Triathlon each year. We welcome you to join us in recognizing and celebrating Ethan Anderson Rhodig.
