Decatur - It's a race of skill and endurance and it brings people from all over to Decatur.
Racers swam, rode bicycles, and ran for glory at this year's Rodney T Miller Triathlon in Nelson Park.
After a week of scorching hot temperatures, racers caught a little break as temperatures were cooler for the start of Sunday's race.
Rodney miller's widow says that and some other additions to the race helped draw in a record amount of racers.
"It's the most people we've had and I think it's due to the break in the weather. And it's also due to the fact that we've added a sprint course. We're really getting a lot of people doing it for the first time," says Karla Miller.
Winners in the men's and women's elite group each took home a first place prize of $1000 dollars.
