Good afternoon tri clubers,
just a reminder for the roll call for tomorrow’s long run.
8 AM from the Mudhouse coffee shop on the downtown mall.

And you will most likely be hungry after burning so many calories in the morning, so don’t forget about our social event at 1 PM in Crozet!

Marc

Good morning,
the beginner ride is on for tomorrow morning 10:15 from BRC!
It going to be a gorgeous fall day tomorrow so come on out to enjoy the day and some good company: there are only 2 beginner ride left for 2014!
Jaime Mata will be leading the ride tomorrow.

“Intro/Relaxed ride”, 10:15 at Blue Ridge Cyclery.

Geared toward beginners and returnees to cycling. This is a great way to start increasing mileage, meet new people and brush up on group riding skills. This is a NO DROP ride, and will be ~12-14 mph pace.

What: Awesome relaxed group ride

When: Saturday, October 18th, 10:15am

Where: Blue Ridge Cyclery

Avg Pace: 12-14 mph

Distance: ~16-20 miles

Marc

Good afternoon tri clubers!
Next Wednesday, October 15th we have our October board meeting. It is held at Three Notch’d brewery starting at 7:30 PM.
EVERYONE is invited to the meeting: we would love to hear from you, let us know what clinics would like to see next year or any other ideas or questions that you have! And of course it’s another great excuse to have a good pint of beer as well :-)

I hope some of you can make it.

Marc

Just a friendly reminder about tommorrow’s board meeting: any club members is welcome to join!

Marc

Tri clubers!
There was a lot of positive energy and some great ideas at the board meeting yesterday! And no, there were not only board members present yesterday :-)
I want to heartfully thank Drew Biebuyck who accepted the position of treasurer and Beth Frackelton who accepted the position of vice-president! I also want to thank Matt Branch for his work as club treseurer for the past 2 years!
Remember that this club could not exist without all of you, so thank you everyone for another great 2014 season and we look forward to a little break and a great 2015 season!
I hope to see many of you this Sunday,

Marc

It may be early, but just checking in to see what 70.3 or IM distance races everyone has planned (or want to do) next year? I have an idea but I thought I would see what everyone else is up to.

Also this would help with finding training partners for the 70.3/IM distance group which would be great, especially on the bike, to get more of us training together on the weekends.

Happy fall training!
Valerie

Valerie – my son Adam and I are also looking for a 70.3 – are thinking one of the following:

– Early May:  Monticelloman – cool weather – sleep in own bed – bike is rather hilly, run hilly (did Olympic last 3 years)
– May 31:  Raleigh – hotter – but unknown course.
– June 14:  Eagleman* on Eastern Shore MD – 5 hours away – cooler than Raleigh, but flat courses and wide bay swim near Hyatt resort.
– Sep 20:  Ironman 70.3* Princeton, NJ – 5 hours away – cooler than Rocketts but unknown course
– Oct. 4:  Rockett’s landing in Richmond – drive one hour – nearly flat bike and run – river has slight current (did Olympic 2 years)

The official Ironman (*) fill-up, whereas you have a lot more time with the Monticelloman and Rocketts, and they are alot more reasonable, especially since no hotel and little mileage is required.

Since I travel every week, I’m use the Tri’s throughout the Summer to get in shape, but I’m tentatively planning to do Eagleman.

Best success
Joe Kannapell (OWS coordinator)

Thanks everyone!

I did Raleigh and Muncie last year which were great races. I’ve also done Kansas and Poconos but don’t think anyone is driving to those :) I’ll probably go back to Raleigh this year. Looks like we could have a few down there! Ken also did Raleigh last year.

Is anyone doing an earlier race like FL or New Orleans?

I have a friend who has done Challenge Atlantic City which apparently is a great race for anyone looking for another “close” 70.3 option, although it’s only a few weeks after Raleigh.

I am also considering IMLOU or IMMD. Wish I could go int’l but not in my budget. Anyone else considering a full? With the new date on IMLOU it definitely seems like the better option for me and the race doesn’t typically sell out early (although might w/ date change) if anyone is looking to do a full next year but not sign up (pay!) until next year.

Perhaps Raleigh will be a great club 70.3 race? Last two years it sold out early so keep that in mind.

Thanks!!
Valerie

The Charlottesville Triathlon Club

The Charlottesville Triathlon Club is dedicated to the promotion and participation of the sport of triathlon – swimming, biking, and running. We are committed to bringing triathletes together and building camaraderie between individuals through group training, clinics, social functions and participation in community events. We also promote health, wellness and safety in the spirit of endurance sports.

The club runs and promotes 3 races in the Charlottesville Triathlon Series, which includes a Sprint and International Tri, and an XTERRA Off-Road Tri race. Since the clubs inception in 2004 we have given away over $80,000 to charity from the proceeds from the race series.

While we are proud of the race series, this is a club and fun is important.  Even if you have never participated in a Triathlon, or not sure that you will, we invite you to learn more about the sport and the club. So come to one of our group workouts and Join the Club!
