Looks like the it's officially time to start looking ahead to the 2012 USA Triathlon Club National Championship, which will be Saturday, May 12, 2012 in San Diego. Odd that it's so early in the season and since Club Regionals haven't even been announced yet, not to mention the fact that it's a week before Columbia, but it should be good motivation for early season training.
I'm sure we won't get the turnout of the last few years at Myrtle, but talking to Ed yesterday, I think we place third 2 years ago in Oklahoma with just 4 club members racing!
Thanks for the heads-up! We should def make this race a club-wide goal for next year. San Diego is an awesome city to visit, plus this is the Olympic qualifier and only the 2nd time a Dextro ITU Series race has been in the USA (the other was DC in 2009!) We've had amazing performances as a team at Myrtle Beach the past two years. If we bring a big enough team to San Diego, we can win the title!
that is probably the same weekend as the Kinetic half & sprint. They haven't posted the 2012 seasaon dates yet.
I'm in but the old lady competition out there is brutal. I'm pushing for a great beach party to watch the elites. This event most likely also will be the U.S. Olympic Trials for London 2012 as we still have one female and three males to select.
Just announced: "The 2012 USA Triathlon Club National Championship will be held in conjunction with Long Course Nationals at the Sept. 22, 2012, Redman Triathlon in Oklahoma City, Okla. Registration is now open at redmantriathlon.com."
