Welcome to the 2016 American Triple-T!

American Triple-T

What IS the American Triple-T?  Well, it’s everything you’ve heard it to be, and more. The event is so much more than your typical “triathlon weekend” — it’s a triathlon achievement of epic proportions for all who partake. It is 3 consecutive days of racing, gelling together 4 races covering a total of more than 70 miles (SPRINT ST) or 140 miles (XTREME XT) for the weekend. You will find yourself swimming in the chilly spring-fed lakes, riding the most technically challenging hills in Ohio, and finishing with out-and-back runs along the trail systems climbing and descending those same hillsides.

The American Triple-T is not for the weak or faint of spirit. Girls-RunningIt has humbled many triathletes who didn’t take it seriously, and it validates a host of others who test their “tri-mettle” at the “T” every year. Athletes from all 50 states, and 4 continents have all sought the privilege of earning their American Triple-T finisher T-shirt. Competitors, volunteers and spectators all come away with a new appreciation of the sport and of the athletes who train and tame mind and body to complete this legendary event.

You’ll also come away with newfound friendships, and you’ll solidify those bonds every year you come together to face this demon. There are even a special few who turned their initial shared experiences at the American Triple-T into a union of souls, and they came back the next year to compete as husband and wife! While we cannot guarantee that you’ll find your soul mate at the “T”, we will guarantee an incredible, unforgettable experience unique in the triathlon world.

HFP Racing February News

Donkey-carott-with-sign2The American Triple-T on May 20-22 is now offering a shorter option, perfect for those wanting to step up to the 70.3 later in the year. The American Triple-T featured the wildly popular Xtreme Tri distance which features more than 140 miles of triathlons over 4 events in just 3 days. There are just 75 spots left of this distance.

The new Sprint Tri distance will offer just 75 spots and will start off with a Super Sprint Triathlon (250m swim – 6k bike – 1mi run) on Friday, then on Saturday morning participants take on the Sprint AM Triathlon featuring a 750m swim, followed by a challenging 16 mile bike and finishing with a 5k run. After a few hours of rest participants will be challenged by the Sprint PM Triathlon that starts off with a 17.5 mile bike, followed by a 750m swim and finishing with another 5k run. The weekend culminates with arguably the toughest suto olympic distance triathlon in the U.S. The race starts off with a .96k swim, followed by a super challenging 25 mile bike and finishing with a daunting 6.55mi run. Participants will have completed more than 70 miles over this long weekend.

If you were thinking about joining us in Helen, GA for our annual training camp…The Helen Training Camp on April 4-10 is SOLD OUT. This annual camp in the northern mountain region of Helen, Georgia limits participation to just 21 lucky participants. Campers have come from 6 states and with a helen_mountain_top_imageambitious week of training planned all should leave thoroughly tested. This camp is a great excuse to get a solid week of uninterrupted training in before the start of the season. Every year campers rave about the gorgeous terrain that presents itself in Northern Georgia each April. Follow all the motivating (and many times silly) camp highlights on HFP’s Facebook page all week.

Helen Training Camp FINAL Details

Dear Campers:

Welcome to the Helen, Georgia Training Camp!

100miRide_photoI look forward to spending this week with everyone as we enjoy pushing each other (to new limits) and getting to know each other more.  The scheduled workouts are somewhat dependant on the weather.  If the forecast calls for all-day rain we may move the longer rides to another day but come prepared to train in all conditions.  I will communicate with each cabin in the morning if there are any changes to the schedule.

Though this is a non-supported (we have no sag wagons) training camp, the camp is broken into 3 ability levels. I will keep the A group together, Don Cain has volunteered to keep B+ group together and Kary Chan has volunteered to keep the B group together. If a C group is needed we’ll nominate a lead for that group too.

Athlete Responsibilities & Reminders

  • Come PREPARED (prepared physically and with proper clothing for all weather)
  • Check in with Shannon at the cabin upon arrival (740-963-4285)
  • Bring your special diet foods for breakfasts and snacks throughout the workouts
  • Lunch is usually during a workout on top of a mountain, so bring what you need on the bike (bars, gel, fruit). There is a great local grocery store in Helen to stock up.
  • Campers are encouraged to go shopping at the local market and purchase dinner foods to help us prepare the 2 dinners hosted at the Sleeping Bear cabin.
  • Bring a good attitude!! You will work hard, you will be tired! Get to sleep after dinner for rest and recovery to work hard again next day.

Thanks so much again for joining us on this epic week of training.
