This will be an excellent event for all levels however I think it will be especially beneficial for the new athlete to the sport of triathlon. There will be many experienced members there who are great sources of information on how to do things, what type of equipment etc.
So, who is planning to attend?
We are working on some user friendly maps but I wanted to share these routes with you. I WILL have the routes marked so there will not really be a need to have a map, but we will have them available just in case. I will have 3 different distances marked for turnaround points on the bike…16 miles (Sprint), 30 miles (Olympic) and 60 miles (HIM). The run is the same for everyone. It’s a 1 mile loop that mimics the Galveston courses. I even have an out and back to make it an even mile. People can do it as many times as they wish…but I am going to advertise 2 miles (Sprint), 4 miles (Olympic) and 6 miles (HIM). With it being a mile, everyone gets to run together – they can do it as mile repeats or continuous.
Here’s what I’m thinking on start times:
HIM – 7am
Olympic – 8:30am
Sprint – 9:30am
Everyone should be done between 11:00- 11:30
