Eagleman 2014
POSTED: 3/05/14 7:47 AM

Slowtwitch is buzzing about the possibility that Eagleman (and the other Tri Columbia races) may be cancelled.

http://forum.slowtwitch.com/forum/Slowtwitch_Forums_C1/Triathlon_Forum_F1/RUMOR_MILL%3A_Eagleman_2014_Possibly_removed__P4994249/

Hopefully this all works out and the races continue.

Well, this is disappointing. Now that it doesn't look promising that we'll have Eagleman or other TriColumbia races, I'm looking into some other races for May/early June since Columbia and Eagleman were my two races for those months. Has anyone raced Kinetic Half, Rock Hall Int, Jamestown Int, or Black Bear Triathlon (Oly/70.3)? If so, any recommendations or insights would be appreciated.

Kinetic Half is a great race. I love that course and it's a very well run event.

NTP, ODSP Class 1 and a bunch of us are headed up to Black Bear to race there in June, so there will be a huge DCTri presence there. The bike is technical and hilly but the run is flat with a lake swim that is likely to be chilly. I don't know anyone who has raced it before, but we do know the organizers of the event and they put on really well run races.

I have never understood the "co-branding" of Eagleman as sort of a WTC race and sort of a TriColumbia race. But maybe WTC will step up and be the savior.

Sell outs and permits in place -- why not?

Done Rock Hall and liked it. Doing it again this year. Temperature usually quite good, pretty area, and you have the option of doing an oly/sprint double (sat/sun) if you're into packing the weekend. -Jason

I bear gifts. Here's hoping this is the last we'll hear of it for a while... looks like the races are ON. Send 'em.

New info from the article below..

"The Columbia Triathlon Association will not shutter, as many athletes feared, and its races will go on as planned."

EDIT - Looks like I was late to this party, the posts about this article weren't in my screen until after I updated. Bummer.

I read a rumor that WTC purchased Eagleman and will direct the race.

Does sound like the races will go on one way or another.

Maybe Ironman Ches in 2015?
