Ray is a Londoner and was a Westchester County and Rye resident for 23 years before moving to California. He started his love affair with Triathlon in 1995 at the Westchester Sprint Triathlon and has continued since then having completed 19 Ironman distance races including Kona. Ray introduced the sport to Rye residents in 2002 starting the first Rye YMCA Tri Class and then the Rye Y Tri Club. The club grew to over 150 with a majority non Rye Y members so in 2011 the club was reorganized as an independent 501c3 and became the Rye Tri Club, opening up to a more diverse geographic membership. Although now living in California, Ray continues to help steer the Club’s Mission Statement of inclusivity, to help all level of athlete, promote a healthy lifestyle and charity giving.
