Columbia Tri Registration
POSTED: 4/14/14 8:05 AM

Its probably too late now but I've been trying to register for the columbia tri for two months now. Tricolumbia website won't let you past the first page. Active.com doesn't get you anywhere. I saw 7 people have registered from the club. That's not very many so imagine others have had the same issue. Anyone know what is going on?

CTA closed down operations due to financial issues. WTC acquired Eagleman and ChesMan. Per Slowtwitch: "The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults (UCF) is set to acquire and run the Iron Girl Columbia Women’s Triathlon as well as the Columbia Triathlon"

Thanks Kev7, unclear from the article whether I should cross Columbiz Oly tri off my list or if I should hold out hope. Seems clear that the WTA will be taking on some of the other events. Unclear on that one. I guess I'll hold out hope. I was counting on that as a training race for a half-full.

An alternative race to do on that same day is the Maritime Triathlon which is part of the Maryland Triathlon Series organized by Set Up Events. It takes place near Easton.

I registered back in the fall and am trying to figure out if I'm out my fees. I scanned the news reports about CTA's problems, but there seem to be some conflicting information. Does anyone know first hand if the Columbia Triathlon (oly) is still going to go off?

It would be horrible if Columbia did not go off - a long standing race - just dead. Not acceptable.

Although, Maritime is on my to do list - maybe not this year, but soon.

I received an email yesterday from Ulman Cancer Fund regarding Iron Girl Columbia & Columbia Triathlon. They appear to be proceeding but things are being finalized.

"Columbia Triathlon and Iron Girl Triathlon Participants,

The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults is excited to announce that we are close to finalizing the acquisition of the rights to own and operate the Columbia Triathlon and the Iron Girl Columbia Triathlon at Centennial Park. We know and appreciate that the unfortunate circumstances surrounding Columbia Triathlon Association have caused much concern throughout our community and the triathlon world. I wanted to personally reach out to the participants of both events and let you all know that these events will go on as scheduled in 2014 and for years to come. Once the legal terms are ironed out, there will be much more communication.

We respect the long-standing traditions of both events and will work to preserve their integrity and look for ways to enhance the experience for the participants, spectators, community partners and the charities that participate.

We will also be activating registration through a new website as soon as the paperwork is finalized. This will allow those who were not able to sign up prior to registration closing to participate. The new website address will be communicated soon.

We at the Ulman Cancer Fund would like to thank the many individuals and groups in the community who have supported us throughout this difficult process. We appreciate the vote of confidence and look forward to sharing more details in the very near future. If you have any questions about your registration or either race in the coming weeks, please don't hesitate to contact me directly at brian@ulmanfund.org

Sincerely,

Brian Satola
COO, Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults
USAT Certified Race Director

Hey All,
I got an email today from one of the Columbia event coordinators.
Although not a Club featured race, the Club has a good showing every year. Would someone like to take on setting up the club tent? It makes for a great rallying point!!
A board member will help you get the tent/chairs, table out of the storage unit in Arlington.
Here's the info. Email Alex if you need more details about placement.
Reply here if you're willing and able to step up and do this for your fellow club members.

Hello everyone,
Hope you are having a great day. My name is Alex Wright, and I am in charge of tent placement for this weekend's Columbia Triathlon.

Below are the details for the tent space along with the rules for race day:
You are allowed to enter the park and set up your tent space from 12:30 PM-5:00PM, on Saturday 5/17/14
You will have a predesignated spot that will be marked off for you. Please do not switch spots or move to another location-we have limited space.
Please note the following rules for Sunday:
No grilling (park regulation)
No loud speakers with music- participants must be able to hear the announcements on swim waves and other important matters.
Park only in designated areas or as assigned by UCF. You will not be able to leave your vehicle by your tent on race day, but you will be allowed to drop off supplies on race morning.
Please do not block the walk way that will separate your tent space from the parking lot, unless your designated spot is in the parking lot.
I will be emailing a map of everyone's placement sometime on Friday.
Look forward to meeting everyone this weekend!

Best,
Alex Wright
