Sign-up now! 2011-2012 USAT National Club Challenge
POSTED: 11/07/11 9:29 AM

It’s beginning to look a lot like…off-season and, if you are like me, getting into those freshly washed jeans is becoming harder every time. But we have the answer to keep you going in the cold and dark months of winter: the USAT National Challenge Competition!

The USAT National Challenge Competition (NCC) is designed to get triathletes excited about off-season training at the club level. Tri Clubs across the country go head-to-head to see who can log the most training miles. Last year we placed fifth, but we all know we are better than that!!!.

The NCC will feature three sessions, each one month in duration, from December to February. Club challenge participants will submitted their training miles to the NCC site for automatic calculation and ranking. (yes, it is honor system)

All sessions will include swim, bike, and run, but one sport will be highlighted for each session (Dec - swim, Jan - bike, Feb - run). The winning club for each session is determined by the greatest number of miles logged during that session for that month's discipline. However all monthly mileage accrued for all disciplines count. Treadmill, elliptical, and bike trainer/stationary bike/spin bike miles also count!!

There are also prizes for the first club to reach the benchmark mileage for each session, and overall combined mileage for a club at the end of the three months. Individual awards are also given to the top individual mileage both in each session and overall.
Register by sending an email to DCTriNCC@gmail.com with:

• Full name
• USAT number (you must be a current member)
• DOB
• email address you want used for registration and correspondence

We start logging mileage on Dec 1st, so don't delay and sign-up now!

(Note: DO NOT register directly with USAT. To be part of the DC Tri Club team we must register you, so just send the required information to DCTriNCC@gmail.com and we’ll take care of the rest)

For more information go to the USAT National Challenge Competition website http://www.usatriathlon.org/audience/clubs/national-challenge-competition.aspx

USAT National Challenge Competition: DC Tri leads the pack!

Besides leading in overall swim/bike/run miles among clubs nationwide, we were (unofficially) the first club to reach the "swim benchmark" of 500 miles on Friday afternoon. As of Monday, the DC Tri ladies dominated the guys in swimming, as they represented eight of our top ten swimmers. Shout-outs go to Victoria Anderson and Stephanie Ewert, who have swam about 25 miles each, as well as Jay Talbott and Mike Obershiemer, our top male swimmers. It is not too late to join the competition, and you can even enter the miles that you have already completed this month! Register by sending an email to dctrincc@gmail.com with your full name, USAT number (must be a current member), date of birth, and email address.

I did over 26 swim miles ; )

Moving on to the bike -I'll be on the trainer this afternoon. Also did the Haines Point Ride on Sunday. Saturday may be a good bike day, but I'll be at the DC Tri trainer session.
