I'm surprised I haven't received an email from CTA about this (pretty sure I'm on their email list), but the Columbia Tri registration opens TOMORROW (Tuesday 9/7).

I don't see a registration time listed anywhere, but in past years it has been 9am. I mention this because I've heard it sells out in a matter of hours (or is it days?)

So.... who's in?

I hate signing up for races this far out. Nevertheless, I am in for year 4.

I'm in.

Every yr I finish this race and swear I will never do it again. Every yr I sign up again.

Think it will rain for 2011 race? Hmmmm. I'd put money on that one.

Where do you guys stay when you go? Race hotel is charging $143/night. Ugh...

You don't have to stay up there. It is close enough to drive up race morning.

I'm in too. My first time at this race.

Everyone always mentions the hills up there. I guess I'll find out about it soon enough at the Half Full Tri next month. That should be good preparation for Columbia, right?

@kkaufer
The race hotel isn't even that close to the transition area, 2 miles away. There are several other hotels that aren't much further away. If you live in Virginia or you just don't want to get up super early on race day, the other places are worth a look. I think some of the rates are closer to $100. Might be hard to find anything much lower than that, though.

Last time I did Columbia was back in '97 and that was w/o a wetsuit at 62 degree water temps. Think I'll still to either volunteering or housing the club tent.

@slowtwitchva: as hilly as the bike course is, the run course is actually recognized as one of the hilliest in all of USAT (according to the TriColumbia web site).
