2014 TriMania Expo - Team Competition
POSTED: 2/17/14 1:04 PM

It is now becoming a tradition that every year the DCTriClub fields 3 teams in the TriMania Expo - Triathlon Competition. And 2014 will be no different. So here we go:

1) Team 1: The DCTriClub Board members
2) Team 2: Members of DCTriClub
3) Team 3: Members of the NTP Program

This thread will be to assemble those interested in participating in Team 2 (general members of DCTriClub). NTP Co-Leaders will take care of Team 3 and, well, the board will take care of themselves.

If you have never been to the TriMania Expo, you can read all about the clinics, seminars, and expo here: 2014 Tri-Mania Washington DC. We encourage you to register NOW (it's free to register), even if in the end you might not be able to make it. Mirinda Carfrae and Tim O'Donnell (who have won countless Ironman Championships) are the keynote speakers. But there are a lot of prizes and raffles so we highly encourage you to show up!

In addition to the clinics, seminars and expo, there is a fun team competition that encourages team camaraderie and good sportsmanship. You can read the details about the competition here: Tri-Mania Competition. But the basic premise is this:

A team consists of anywhere from 4 to 12 persons. A person can do one event or they can do all 3 events. It will all depend on how many people we can get interested, but we need at least one female participating in each event.

Event 1: 5k Offroad Run - 4 teammates will do a 5k trail run. Pretty self explanatory. The run starts at 9:00AM so you will need to be there early.
Event 2: 10k Trainer Time Trail - 4 teammates will be set up on a CompuTrainer and complete a 10k bike course with elevation change. You will need to bring your own bike for this!
Event 3: 4 x 300 swim relay - 4 teammates will compete in a 4 x 300 yard relay. Each swimmer will swim 300 yards. Again, pretty self explanatory (let the ribbing of my lap counting ability commence).

The club will pay the entrance fee for the teams. We are hoping to field a team of 12 club members for this event. If you are interested in competing, please post here or email support@dctriclub.org to let us know. Rumor has it that Mirinda and Tim might be competing alongside or even as part of a team!

And while you are out at the Expo, please give back to the triathlon community and show what a great club we are by volunteering to help out. Even if it's just for a short amount of time (a couple hours or so). More information about volunteering at Tri-Mania can be found here: VOLUNTEER AT TRI-MANIA!

And just to qualify: you do not have to be fast. This is meant to be for everyone and we want it to be about fun and club spirit. So please don't feel like you can't sign up unless you're fast. That is not the case at all.

We hope to see you out there. And please post here if you want to be part of the club team!

I am in for a little TriMania. I would prefer the bike leg but can do whatever leg the team needs.

Is no one else interested?! We have one for the bike! That's 11 more to go! You know you're gonna drop by the Expo for the FREE nutrition products, the FREE swag, the bike porn, the gear porn. All the awesome stuff that will be there.

Why not just get in a quick workout while you're at it? Swim. Bike. Run. Meet some of your fellow club members and have a good time! You don't have to be fast, but you MUST have a fun time!

In theory, I can swim, depending on what time I'd need to be there.

I'd like to do the run, but need to setup a babysitter or someone to push my twins in a stroller while I race. Thankfully Georgetown Prep is half a mile from my house.
