Jared Bynum, a committed runner and triathlete, suddenly and tragically lost his life on Sunday, October 7, 2012 when he was struck from behind by an SUV while on his last 100 mile training ride before the Florida Ironman. Jared was a large supporter of anything and everything local. In the two years that I knew Jared, he often chose group meeting places based on what local restaurant he could bring more attention to. A group could be meeting for a training event and the meeting place was almost always based on what the perfect place would be to top off the workout. As a co-worker and training partner of Jared’s, I am extending an invitation to you all to become a part of this event.
?For the Mt. Acosta Classic, it is our intention to showcase the local establishments the day of the race. Along with the local biking, running and adventure shops, we would like to team up with you – the future vision of Jacksonville. With the large turnout that we are expecting, we are looking forward to bringing your visions to the forefront of the community.
In 2010, Jared and his wife, Kelli, started mentoring at-risk students at Julia Landon Middle School through their church, Southside Baptist. After his fatal accident, a scholarship fund to help pay college tuition costs for a deserving Landon student from an underprivileged background was started in his honor.
