  • If you are around for the long holiday weekend, I’m going to head out to Mt. Weather for some riding and running on Saturday. After weeks upon weeks upon decades of rain, it looks like the upcoming Saturday should actually be dry.

    Details: the Blue Ridge Challenge (otherwise known as the “Mt. Weather Ride”) is 54 mile loop with two major climbs:…[Read more]

    Adam, next time put the elevation on a logarithmic scale. 😛

    Great ride this morning everyone! That was like 30+ folks out there for the first warm Saturday of the year! Great turnout!

    My apologies to the few of y’all who did the Mountain Gate side hill stretch with us and made the wrong turn with us. :/ One of these years I’ll remember the route correctly! But hey: there were definitely some VERY nice…[Read more]

    It definitely is a chicken/egg problem and hints that we need to do better with member engagement to get members to chime in with their race schedules. I also think it’s a bit of a website issue as the Race “attend” area is not as easy to find on the new website. I’m pushing the web developers to get this on the main home page in more obvious…[Read more]

    If you’re talking about the club training races that we put on for our members, then the calendar is continually forming, but the first half of the year is set with the upcoming Splash & Dash this weekend, the duathlons in April, and the training triathlon in June. You can find the list here: 2018 Club Races.

    If you’re talking about the club…[Read more]

    Yes, we will. We are working with CUA to find pool dates that will work for them. Stay tuned and we will announce the meets as soon as we know!

    Thanks!

  • First off, thank you for casting your ballot.

    Now with regard to your points:

    • Monthly happy hours: We have had a lot of fluctuation on the Board of Directors this year. We have had 2 people resign due to life circumstances during the year (between voting cycles) that had to then be replaced midyear and Board members did the best they could…

  • To answer the above question (a tad late): yes, nominations are an open process.

    Keep the nominations coming!

  • Things that go bump during the day!

    Awesome to see that someone wants to come BACK to the Board! That’s how cool we are! 😛

  • Yes! Please join us! The run is at 9AM, but please join us starting around 8:15 or so to sign in and chat!

    The event is free, but you need to sign up via the EventBrite (link below) to be entered into the raffle. This is a great way to meet the Elite team members and hang out and chat with them.

    We know the weather will be warm, so “hot” drinks…[Read more]

    For anyone who goes out beyond the BP into Poolesville, the Piney Meetinghouse Rd bridge is finished and the road is open again. It’s much wider and really great pavement now!

  • The 2017 Nation’s Triathlon is just around the corner (just over 4 weeks away): Sunday, September 10th. We typically have over 400 active or recently active club members excitedly awaiting the opportunity to race in our nation’s capital and they can use your support (and so could those 3000 other racers).

    There are many opportunities to volunteer…[Read more]

    FYI for the Weekly Saturday bike ride: a section of Piney Meetinghouse Road between River road and Glen Road is closed for the summer due to bridge re-construction. So if you’re hoping to use that as part of a loop on the way out to or back from the T, then just be aware that you’ll need to re-route.

    The bridge is actually being widened to put in…[Read more]

  • Additional info; saw this in a program forum:

    “Some of you may have received an e-mail from the Rock Hall Lodging Assoc. that your campsite was cancelled as the town has now decided not to support a campground next to the race site.  Just so you know, there is a campground 3 miles away that is renting for $57/night (2 night min).  I called yes…[Read more]

  • I don’t know if we have any formal plans, but I’m sure some of us will be at the Crab House Friday night and we will definitely be there after the race on Saturday for drinks and fun! I’m in a house right near transition, so we might wander over into town for food at some point, but we haven’t discussed it yet.

    And sorry to highjack the thread,…[Read more]

  • I have not seen any information regarding camping this year. They may not be offering it up this year.
