This was in the latest Setup Events newsletter:
"The Jamestown Triathlon is now on Saturday June 8, 2013, not Sunday June 9, 2013. The Jamestown Triathlon will be the 2013 USAT Mid-Atlantic Regional Triathlon Club Championships and is also a Set Up Cup Qualifier event."
Can anyone confirm that this is definitely the case? I think we've seen these announcements before, where it later changed...
More info from the newsletter:
"This event sold out in 2012 and with the addition of the Club Championship, we expect it to sell out again. Located next to the Jamestown Settlement, Anniversary Park is the same location as the Patriots Half and Sprint. Just minutes from I-64 in Williamsburg, VA this is a great venue with plenty of post race activities in the area; think Water Country USA, Busch Gardens, Colonial Williamsburg, etc. Not only is this a great race site, but it offers amazing courses. After a 1500 meter swim in the James River athletes will ride a 40K out and back course over great pavement along Rt. 5 into Charles City County. The bike course isn't pancake flat, but it's close. The biggest hill is a bridge of the Chicahominy River. Once you come back into T2 you will be treated to a flat and fast 10K course. The run course winds along paved and gravel jogging trails alongside forests and fields then finishes at the post race party complete with DJ, food and beer! We are working on some great deals from local sponsors so you will be sure to have a great weekend at the Jamestown Triathlon."
Capacity is apparently capped at 500.
The club has won what, the last 7 of 8 of these Mid-Atlantic titles? A busy June/July tho, with the Williamsburg and Placid club-sponsored races.
Same day as Eagleman.
Would love to do Jamestown (and not have to deal with Chesapeake Bay Bridge traffic after Eagleman).
DC Tri -
It is true, our friends at Setup Events confirmed this race as the Mid-Atlantic Regional Championships before USAT could make the announcement. So unless USAT does a bait and switch on us then this shall stand.
The board recognizes that this is a busy weekend and a busy month for racing but please stay tuned for more details about how we will make a presence at this race. After-all we have a title to defend, right!?
President, DC Tri Club
Make sure to put the 2013 Mid-Atlantic Club Championship on your race calendar!
Jamestown Triathlon - Saturday June 8, 2013.
Where is everyone going to be staying?
At a free, plush B&B in Hampton (aka home) :-)
Would suspect, if it's a club event, an effort will be made to get a group hotel, as in Richmond at last year's Mid Atlantic championship...
...Registered, for mixed relay team. Looking for a runner, maybe a cyclist. Team 'DC Tri Hardest'.
FYI - I booked a room at Kingsmill so my DD and friends could run around Kingsmill and have fun, while I sweat it out with you all. So far I've only seen Ed and one other DC Tri member registered. Wonder if we will get critical mass with all the other competing races - well at least Peasantman will be done so no conflict or curse from the demigod there.
