Jon Muncie | Race Director

The 2016-2017 season will be my third year racing with Cal Triathlon. I am a PhD student in the Joint Graduate Group in Bioengineering at UC Berkeley and UCSF. After growing up and completing my undergraduate studies in Michigan, moving to the west coast has been amazing for year-round training and beautiful terrain to swim, bike, and run through. The Cal Triathlon team has also provided me with new friends and an invaluable support system far from home. When I'm not in lab or training, I'm usually hanging out with my roommates trying to find the best coffee, comfort food, and bubble tea that the Bay Area has to offer.

I'm excited to take on the co-Race Director position for this year's Bearathlon. The backdrop of the San Francisco Bay, the city skyline, and the Bay and Golden Gate Bridges makes Bearathlon one of the most spectacular races I've ever experienced. This will be an incredible opportunity to help provide a safe, inclusive, and memorable race for collegiate and age group athletes alike.
