Mason has participated in over 200 triathlons, with one of her first starting in Wrightsville Beach.
“Wilmington is home to the oldest triathlon on the east coast and the community gets so involved and it’s just a great area to train and race and I’m very proud of Wilmington.” Mason said.
Brown played 13 seasons in the NBA after a tour of the Carolinas, playing at North Brunswick high school and NC State.
Robinson is a former UNC football player who later coached at his alma mater.
