Does anyone know anything more about this? I heard it's supposed to be scheduled for August 2012, but haven't seen anything new on it in awhile...and it's time to start planning my season for next year. Let me know if you have intel? Thanks!
I may be able to find out some answers soon but I would bet that Chuck and/or Molly will be on hand at the annual meeting to share some info.
As far as I know, this is still a go. It just takes a while to get all of the details hashed out in order to open up registration.
Is this going to be IM branded? (i.e. is it going to cost 50% more?)
It is planned to be a 70.3, yes.
Chuck and Kristen are confirmed to be on hand at the annual meeting however the "official" announcement of this mythical race has been pushed back to the beginning of 2012.
Come to the annual event to learn about a special discount that ALL active DC Tri Club members will receive in 2012 to a WSEM race of choice.
So, was today's Chocolate Run a prelude to a 70.3 at National Harbor?
I had to leave the party early today. Anyone hear the intel on national harbor?
Chuck spoke pretty early in the party, so you must have just not heard him. Nothing too new...August 5th was confirmed. He had a ream of paper that he said was his contract with WTC, so it should be officially announced pretty soon.
Heard there would be a cap of 2k entrants which will hopefully resolve some of the issues Hot Chocolate had.
not that it matters, but I think the field will be capped at 3500. Still pretty small and manageable. I wouldn't worry for a second about logistical issues with this race. In terms of keeping things running smoothly, that's one thing that WSEM does really, really well.
I must have just been too engrossed in my fatty wings and beer and missed his comments on it. I don't even see a webpage or listing on the ironman page for it, so just super curious how firm it is that it's happening and when the registration would open. I want to do a 70.3 in 2012 for sure, and so if I need to plan for another one would rather know sooner rather than later.
Registration opens at Noon today! Be sure to register...
Don't forget that we have negotiated a discount for the race.
