A Mascot for DC Triclub???
POSTED: 6/11/12 12:21 PM

I saw Probono, the brief case mascot of the Lawyers Have Heart 10K, milling around the Georgetown Waterfront after the race on Saturday morning. This promped an interesting follow-up conversation with Ryan Troll at the Clarendon Cup on Saturday afternoon, as I described this giant anthropomorphic brief case promoting the race, taking pictures with people, and creating lots of general merriment.

Ryan said that DC Triclub may have some marketing funds available for such a venture, provided we come up with a good idea and someone would be willing to wear the costume. But what would this costume be!? I think it needs to be fairly mobile so it can get around at races, run, and maybe even ride a bike (at a great risk to the guy/girl in the costume!) It would certainly help get our club's name out there, as well as appealing to kids (I think our youngest member right now is age 25!)

Should DC Triclub create a mascot? If so, what would he/she/it be??

Discuss! Debate!

Don't overthink it. Hugh Harris in a tutu. He already owns the costume. He has experience wearing it in public.

I thought Tuan was our mascot.

Clearly, the politically correct mascot for our club is a member of Vietnamese royalty.

Tuan can't be our mascot! We need someone/thing who can swim! I like that Cheetos guy, but we might infringe on the copyrights.

I'm thinking the DC TRIceratops... a red dinosaur! To make him more mobile, maybe just get the costume head, and have someone wear it along with a tri kit? We could get him some giant goggles, sunglasses, and a sweet aero helmet! Maybe even a tricycle too?

I'm guessing Tuan and I would probably take turns being the guy in the costume...

They're feeding me BBQ, hush puppies, and sweet tea!

Perhaps you have a better idea? Maybe Ryan The Troll? I can see the giant troll doll now :-)

We need to reorder those sweet muscle shirts, in a full size run and just have everybody wear those around. Done and done.
