Three More Races

I've registered for three more events and added them to My 2011 Races.  They are two triathlons, a sprint and an Olympic distance, and a 15K foot race.  All three races are scheduled before Ironman Florida.


The first race is the 2011 Tri the Parks (John Tanner #2) Sprint Triathlon on Saturday, September 10, 2011 which starts at 8:00am at John Tanner State Park in Carrolton, Georgia.  The park is 80 miles from my house.  I plan to drive there on race day.  I'll have to leave the house at 4:15am.  The park opens at 6:00am.  I should be able to get there in plenty of time to check-in, get marked, setup my transition area, and get to the beach by 7:30am for the start at 8:00am.  There may be a $5 fee for parking at the park.

The Tri the Parks Sprint Triathlon course includes a 600 meter swim, 14.3 mile bike, and 5K run.

The second race is the 2011 Tugaloo Olympic Triathlon on Saturday, September 24, 2011 which starts at 8:00am at Tugaloo State Park on Lake Hartwell near Lavonia, Georgia.  The park is 120 miles from my house.  Again, I plan to drive there on race day.  I'll leave the house at 3:45am.  Like John Tanner State Park in Carrolton, Tugaloo State Park opens at 6:00am.  Like the Tri the Parks triathlon, I want to get there in plenty of time to check-in, get marked, setup my transition area, and get to the beach by 7:30am for the time trial start at 8:00am.  There is a $5 parking fee at the park.

The Tugaloo Olympic Triathlon course includes a 1.5K swim, 42K bike, and 10K run.

The third race is the 2011 Peachtree City Classic 15K on Saturday, October 15, 2011 which starts at 8:50am at the Frederick Brown Amphitheater in Peachtree City, Georgia.  The Fred, as it is commonly called, is only 22 miles from my house.  Like the two previous races, I'll drive there on race day leaving the house at 6:15am.  Race day packet pickup is from 7:00am to 8:00am.  That will give me plenty of time to check-in and warm-up.  This will be my third year running this race.  Susan has registered to run the 5K which starts at 8:40am.

See ya at the race(s)!
