After 10 years of volunteering his time and skills to the Norway Tri-athlon, Race Director Mark White is passing the baton to Kate Bona-witz, 6th grade teacher at the Guy E Rowe School. Mark will continue to be the head of the swim at the Tri and has provided great support during the transition.


Born in Rochester, N.Y., Kate studied developmental biology at USM and undertook research on Multiple Myeloma at MMCRI before settling down to teach in Norway.


Aside from professional skills managing a classroom of rowdy 6th graders, Kate has an impressive personal history as a competitive athlete. She started running at 12 and fell in love with cycling at 18. She has competed in full and half ironman triathlons, and has done several Olympic distance triathlons.


Kate is currently training with 9 teammates for the 842-mile Wow Cyclothon bike race around Iceland to be held this June. The Norway Tri is July 14th.
