So as it states I would like to get some info on putting together an annual tri in my area. I have the support of my local FF union and they feel confident our new mayor would support my efforts as well. (She is making a big push to get people active in our area.) So I'm not lacking in manpower, area or enthusiasm but I am lacking in knowledge of pitfalls to look out for, where to get some things etc. So if anyone here has any experience with this kind of stuff, I would greatly appreciate your help, experience and insight. I thank you in advance.
USAT was a big help for our tri club when created a sprint tri. also look around for timing companies near you they handle the timing of the race and probably help you out a little w/ rentals and stuff in your area
get organized and get busy! good luck
goals for 2011:
break 19minutes for 5k
break 2:42 for olympic triathlon probably Anthracite olympic
break 3:16 for marathon ( a long shot but it's fun putting yourself out there)
Thank you much for your time! I may have other questions for you at a later date but for now, this is a good start.
