You may not be open the paywalled-piece, but it says tris are alive and getting more frequent in Florida. "More than 2,000 triathletes will gather at the Daytona International Speedway in Florida next month for an endurance sports festival called Challenge Daytona. There will be races for athletes of all ages and abilities, but the main event will be the Professional Triathletes Organization 2020 Championship, in which the world’s best triathletes will compete for one of the biggest prize purses the sport has ever seen: $1.15 million."
Interesting article - If you could go back - what would you tell yourself about triathlon???
Hi, I’m selling a lightly used Kestrel Talon carbon Triathlon/Time Trial bike. It has mostly Ultegra components, with an upgraded SRAM RED crankset. It’s a 2x10 speed bike. It’s got a 2-bolt seat post clamp, so you can adjust the tilt angle and fore-aft position separately and precisely. The seat post clamp can also be flipped and the bike can be setup as a road bike. It’s a 48 cm size frame, I’m 5’-6” and it fits me perfectly. Depending on your leg vs. torso length, it can fit anybody from 5’-2” up to 5’-7”. I have some time trial extras such as shoe covers and an aero water bottle you can have with it. I also have some different stems that we can play with to get the fit right for you. I'm asking $600; for comparison purposes, a similar listing sold on eBay for $820 (plus shipping). Please PM me if you’d like more pictures or information. I can meet you at a TVC Time Trial to try it out if desirable. It’s a very aerodynamic bike.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 15th Annual Broome County Parks Triathlon has been cancelled this year, but will return in 2021. We understand that many races are being rescheduled, but after contacting all the support personnel -- including timer, volunteers and staff -- we could not find a date in this calendar year that would be acceptable to all parties. All registrations have been moved to the 6/26/2021 race date. If this is an issue with your schedule, please contact Grace Tabeek at [email protected] and we will process a refund (minus RunSignUp processing fees). We’ve been in contact with USA Triathlon in reference to their one-day membership fee, and they have responded with the following options: USA Triathlon is offering the following choices for adults that purchased one-day memberships for events that are then cancelled: 1. Give back their one-day membership fee to support the sport and receive a $15 ROKA Gift Card 2. Upgrade to a USA Triathlon annual membership for just $25 and get a $15 ROKA Gift Card 3. Transfer the one-day membership to another race in 2020 or 2021 4. IF APPLICABLE, offer a refund to the participant (Note: Broome County Parks Triathlon will be providing a list to USA Triathlon of the persons that purchased a one-day membership. If you plan on attending the 2021 race, you do not have to contact USA Triathlon. Thank you for your understanding, stay safe and see you next year!
Any word on if the tri will be held as planned?
Thank you for your support.
I have a fluid trainer. Only a year old. Just bought a smart trainer and don’t need it. Anyone want it?
Is there a meeting tonight?

Swimmers, cyclists and runners from Broome County come on in! Our social club has a triathlon problem and we want YOU to be a part of it!

Laurel Lake Big Loop

Kevin & Anne McGuigian have extended an invitation to the tri club
to attend their September Tuesdays & Thursdays evening (6pm) swims at Laurel Lake in Brackney, PA. Parking is available at the Silver Lake Church, and the cottage is right across the road.

Kevin is using a sign-up website so he has an idea of the numbers
that would be showing up:

Tuesday swims are around a set of buoys in the smaller side of the lake
https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040549AEA62CA2FF2-laurel3

Thursday swims we go through the tunnel and do a loop around the big side (note - we stop at each buoy and wait for the group)

[04/06/20]   Due to the continuing situation with social distancing in New York State our April meeting is cancelled.

We encourage all of our members to stay safe but to still find a way to keep training. Regular exercise helps keep your immune system strong and will allow you to be ready for any races that you are signed up for when all of this craziness is over.

If you have any pictures/videos of how you are staying in shape feel free to post them here for all of us to enjoy.

Our Swim Clinic at the Whitney Point High School on March 28th has been postponed. We hope to be able to reschedule for later on this spring.

There are several events coming up this month to get you started on the 2020 race season.

Mar 7 - The Belmar Parade Day Mile

Mar 14 - St. Pat's 4-Miler

Mar 22 - Forks XV

Mar 28 - BCTC Swim Clinic at Whitney Point HS

We wish them both continued progress and for both to have a speedy recovery.
