Wow…can you believe the weather we’re getting here in the Mideast region? Unless you’re in southern Florida there is no escaping this horrible unrelenting cold weather. It certainly is forcing even the hardcore athletes inside for a boring spin on their trainer or a mind numbing treadmill session. Regardless of your attitude right now regarding this weather I think we all can agree that spring can’t get here fast enough. Need some motivation? We’re down to the final 20 or so spots for the American Triple-T at Shawnee. It always takes some time to get those final spots as participants are dropping out at about the same rate as participants are signing up. It’s a huge commitment and with this tough weather this winter it’s making it even tougher to get ready for early season events…especially as one as daunting as the American Triple-T. Grab on of the last few spots before the price increases $50.00 on March 1. Get Registered Now.
HFP Racing is introducing some really cool technology for 2015. You may have already noticed are new online registration system which will link everything together for our new integrated timing software that will allow for much improved searchable online results formatting and even faster race day results. Along with nearly instantaneous results (refreshed every 5 seconds) at the finish line, participants divisional results will be refreshed on our 6 HD monitors every 90 seconds. We hope you’ll appreciate a more simple, user friendly, online registration process that leads to an even better “end result” after you finish. Additionally, this new integrated software will allow for immediate updating of the FIT Family Series points and also for the American Triple-T standings shortly after finishing.
Next up for HFP Racing is the SOLD OUT Helen Training Camp on April 6-12 in the northern mountain region of Helen, Georgia. With more than 20 participants from 6 states attending this years camp will be loads of fun. This camp is a great excuse to get a solid week of uninterrupted training in before the start of the season.
Get ready to race HFP’s spring events at Ohio University (April 25) and Miami University (May 9th). These annual events give participants an opportunity to get in an early season triathlon (or duathlon) before most folks have even taken their bikes off the trainers. The Ohio University event features not only a triathlon/duathlon event but a 5k Run and a challenging Mud Run. The O’Bleness Race for a Reason annually raises nearly $100,000 for local charities. The Ohio University event is entering its 4th year and the Miami University event will celebrate year #10 in 2015. We hope to see many of you at these early season favorites.
Have a great day and keep thinking warm thoughts!
