The YK MountainMan Triathlon is named after the frontiersman, Luther Sage Kelly. He wanted to be laid to rest where he had his greatest experiences, noted as saying “I feel my body will rest better in Montana, the scene of my earlier activities, than it would in the vastness of Arlington, where I purposed having it laid.”
