Savageman Training weekend: Join us for a weekend of fun....and a little suffering....as we tackle the hills of Deep Creek Lake! The club is organizing a training weekend in Deep Creek the weekend of August 8th - 9th. We will head up on Friday night and spend Saturday and Sunday riding the course, running, and swimming. Campsites have been reserved but you are welcome to stay in a hotel if you prefer....feel free to come for all or part of the weekend. This is great practice for any of you doing a hilly triathlon this year (Timberman, Savageman, IM Louisville/Wisconsin). Post here if you want to join the fun!
I would. It's gorgeous up there and definitely a challenging ride that is great for training, but this is the weekend before my hell tri-weekend (Luray Oly Saturday and NETri Oly on Sunday), so I think I'll pass.
But I would highly recommend doing the training weekend to anyone else. It's a great course (the Savageman Oly that is, don't get me started on how humbled I was by the Savageman Half course) and a great area to go that is not that far away.
Now this sounds like fun. When you say camping. We are tlaking tents and crap like that right??? Just making sure, because peoples idea of camping seems to be different than mine.
I'm in! Sounds like fun... now if I could only find that tent...
I'd like to RSVP.
Oh yeah, and how many spots / campsites do we have, etc??? I'll probably have a +1, perhaps +2.
That sounds great. I will join. Anne Marie Brady
Just let us know how many people you have and we can reserve more spots if needed. And yes, we mean real camping....not just a cheap hotel :)
Jules, your timing couldn't have been any better. I'll be up in Deep Creek already for a week of vacation. It'll be great to meet up with everyone and put an end to my off-season.
As Kramer would say, "Giddy Up!" Count me in and sign me up! Woo Hooo!!
Can someone bring a guitar so we can sing Cat Stevens songs by the campfire??
I am in. I don't have a tent, but then again I own a Honda Element. I can just sleep in it.
I think Lawrence and I are going to be in. If that changes, I'll give you an update.
Wow - this sounds awesome. Just signed my husband and I up for that race. Last weekend we went and rode the course. Tough.
Unfortunately my high school class reunion interferes with this training weekend. O/w would be there!
Can you share any more details on what the training plan is for that weekend?
The training plan should be rigorous, with lots of open-water swimming (hopefully)!
Anyone planning on doing the NE Regional tri the following weekend? I start my pre-race taper once we're done swim/bike/run on Sunday!
I'd like to join!
I'm thinking about it, but I'm more of a rent a house, get a hotel room kind of girl.
I only like camping when it applies to Duke Nukem. or Quake. Ahhhh college.
If there is demand for a cheap rental house near the State Park, the folks with a cabin across the street from ours at DCL often rent it to me for cheap when I need extra bedrooms for training weekends. I don't know whether it's available that weekend, but if there's enough interest it has 4 bedrooms and will run probably about $300 for the weekend. It's on Brant Rd near the run-course turnaround and less than 1/2 mile from the State Park campgrounds. It's also on the cove where you want to do your open water swimming.
No promises, but I can inquire if there is enough interest for 4 bedrooms.
Kyle - I'd be interested in going in with you on the rental cabin... sounds like the perfect place to stay over the weekend.
