Welcome to the 2018 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. It 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. So please, take your time, peruse the website, and check out all of the unique aspects of this amazing weekend event, then reach deep down and find the courage to sign up and join us at the 2018 American Triple-T on June 1-3.
Don’t miss this great opportunity to race in one of the most unique events in triathlon. Register before December 31 at Midnight to avoid a $50.00 price increase for both distances.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for my blog. I thought it was kind of cool and maybe something that might interest some of my readers. Thanks for supporting HFP Racing! Looking forward to seeing you at a race soon.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 34,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 13 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

After inspecting the course(s) last week for the Mohican Endurance Festival I’ve decided to change the run course and keep participants on the park roads within the park. This will still provide participants a beautiful rolling run course on mostly shaded park roads. Trail conditions and medical staff accessibility were key factors in the decision to change the course.
Ultimately, I feel this will positively impact the race and provide participants with a much safer more enjoyable run course.
HFP Racing – looking for an opportunity? a career change maybe?

Along with being tech savvy, candidates must enjoy working weekends and working during the very early morning.

Team HFP Racing is an official USA Triathlon sanctioned club and is open to the public. Team HFP will serve as a place where HFP Athletes can encourage and challenge each other on the course, while building friendships off it. The cost to join is $50.00 per year. Registration opens on Monday, September 29 and closes on November 1, 2014. Uniforms will be available in early January, 2015.
Team members will receive numerous benefits with your membership including:
Discounts on Top-notch, Super sweet, Custom-made Safetti/Team HFP apparel & gear [Click here to view 2015 uniforms]
Minimum 25% discount on select HFP owned events
Discounts on more cool stuff from participating sponsors (Go Fast Multisport, Safetti, and Infinit Nutrition)
As with any team, your membership comes with certain benefits and certain expectations. Below we have outlined the expectations to be on the team. We have a pretty simple philosophy: do more — get more. We have team members that have been racing with us for 2 decades or more and no longer pay to race because they go well beyond the call of duty for HFP Racing. Others have been on the team just as long but choose to do just the minimum to continue to get their standard benefits — both are OK.
