Setup Events 2013 Race Calendar

Setup Events just came out with their 2013 race calendar and registration begins on Nov 12th. Just a few things to note…...

Rumpass won’t be happening next year. I guess they got to sort out the marina issue.

Kinetic sprint/half weekend stays the same (May 11-12)

Giant Acorn was moved a week earlier to last week in Sept.

New half distance on Sept. 29th in Charlotte.

Also, White Lake half in NC was moved from 1st week in May to April 6th. This is a great date for those wanting to do an early season half without having to travel too far. I did it last year when it was 90* on May 5, and the new date fits my schedule perfectly. I’m in for this one, as well as Kinetic ½ just 5 weeks later.

Down for Kinetic 1/2. Already got my camping spot reserved. Bummed about Rumpuss...need a good April olympic distance that doesn't involve travel to the west coast.

Sucks about Rumpass. I highly recommend REV3 knoxville as an early season Olympic race. Def. the best race I've done so far in a fun town and the pros are there too. About an 8 hour drive one-way so it's an overnighter for sure...

Anyone doing the new Bone Island Tri?

Me and a buddy signed up for the IM distance. Looks like a fun venue.

Aw. Bummed about Rumpass. It was my season starter the last few years.

That's too bad about Bumpass. It's one of my favorite races. What exactly is the issue? I'm in for the Kinetic Half -- coming full circle here. My very first tri was the Kinetic Spring a few years ago - It was raining cat and dogs and I did just about everything wrong -- after which I was hooked on this sport forever :)

I believe the venue/property where Bumpass was held was sold, the new owners weren't comfortable with the liability, and a last-minute location change was made. It would seem that the new location wasn't a long-term solution.
Now it's time to start searching for early-season races...
