Race Update – 4 Days Left for Early Registration

USA Triathlon Sanctioned Event Offers Races for All Ages, Abilities, Entire Family
During Fun-filled Weekend of July 30, 31 at East Gallatin Recreation Area

Regular Registration Ends June 30!

A quick update for those who have been holding off on registering.  We know you are out there!  Only 4 days left to save a few bucks on your race registration.  Our numbers continue to look great, so why not join in on the fun.  Race solo, or put together a team.  It’s sure to be a grand weekend.

We’ve added a second start wave to the Sprint race.  This will help the slower swimmers, or just those that are a little bit nervous about the swim, have a great race experience.  You can select your start wave on the registration form.  I’ll send out an email in a few weeks to get your choice from every those of you who have already registered.  Also, we are unfortunately dropping the Youth Race from Saturday’s events.  This race was actually being put on by the City of Bozeman, with help from the Bozeman Triathlon Club.  For a number of reasons, the City has chosen to not host the race.  Hopefully they will pull something together later in the summer.

Keep in mind that the race is a fund raiser for the Montana Conservation Corps (http://www.mtcorps.org/).  A portion of race profits will be donated to MCC in a effort to support their ongoing efforts to both provide hands-on conservation and education growth and learning opportunities for youth and young adults.  Their impacts are noticeable throughout the region through their work in local communities and public lands.   Donations can be made when registering, or through the following link:  http://www.active.com/donate/mtcorps

Please help the Bozeman Tritons raise money for this important cause.  The website is secure, fast and easy to use.  At the website you will be able to choose an amount to donate and receive email confirmation of your donation. I will be notified via email as soon as you make your donation. Thank you, and please forward this email to as many people as you can to encourage more people to donate!

Complete race details can be found at www.bozemantritons.org/tritonstri. If you have a question about the race, contact us at racedirector@bozemantritons.org.   Train hard and we’ll see you soon!

Reminder!  Regular Registration ends on June 30th.  There are just over two weeks to save a few bucks.  So why not go on line now to register now?  Register for the Sprint    Register for the Long Course

The courses are all in great shape!  The photo above is from the top of the Long Course run.  We’ve had a wet spring, but that will mean lots of wildflowers out on the courses.  Folks are swimming in the East Gallatin Recreatin Area.  We’ve been out on the bike courses and they all seem to have survived the winter.  We’ll be out marking the major hazards and sweeping the turns before the races.  Registration numbers are strong, so all is looking good! 

We’ve had a great response to our Call for Volunteers!  Many thanks to all who have already.  The volunteer positions list (Volunteer List) is posted on line.  Take a look and let us know what looks good to you.  If you are interested in helping out take a look at the list and contact Laurie at laurie.thatcher@gmail.com

Wow!  Just last week we were seeing winter storm warnings in the area.  But I just got back from the East Gallatin Recreation Area, the site of the Bozeman Tritons Triathlon, and am pleased to say that I swam!  Open water swimming is definitely doable now.  A wetsuit is required, but I’ve competed in several races with colder water than what we have in the pond.  So this is great news for those training for the race.

Thanks to all who have already responded about volunteering.  We really appreciate you stepping up and helping out.  I just posted the volunteer positions list (Volunteer List).  Take a look and let us know what looks good to you.  If you are a certified flagger, certified lifeguard, or have a canoe or kayak and are willing to help out with water safety, please let us know.  If you are interested in helping out take a look at the list and contact Laurie at laurie.thatcher@gmail.com
