– THE 5430 TRIATHLON SERIES IS BACK –
History repeats itself as Lance Panigutti joins forces with Barry & Jodee Siff to bring back the iconic “5430 Triathlon Series” in 2017:
The Colorado Sprint Triathlon on June 3rd, 2017
The Boulder Peak Triathlon on July 9th, 2017 complete with a Pro Prize Purse of $25,000!
The original 5430 Triathlon (formerly the 5430 Long Course) on September 17th, 2017
A sprint, an Olympic, and a Half… all from one of the best venues in America – the Boulder Reservoir – and all on their original courses…of course including Olde Stage Road in the Peak.
Barry & Jodee sold the Series to Ironman in 2009, and much has changed since then. Those who experienced the 5430 events from 2004-2009 have said a lot of the heart and soul of the events, plus the incredible feel and attention to the athlete, has been lost in recent years. Lance and the Siffs aim to bring that back.
“Jodee’s awards, our Tri Sustainability Program, the amazing raffle prizes, awesome t-shirts and finisher medals, the really cool start to the races, and our commitment to the athletes… this is what we are excited about bringing back to Boulder,” says Barry Siff from his home in Tucson.
Lance Panigutti, Owner and Founder of the very successful Without Limits race production company, adds: “I have long known something’s been missing in the Boulder triathlon scene, and that was what 5430 had going with its huge events which sold out every year. I want to bring that back to Boulder, the true Mecca of triathlon. Our athletes – pro and age groupers – deserve it!”
Registration opens up on Thursday December 15th, the 5430 Triathlon Series package – all three races – are just $300 …but just for just two weeks! This “early-bird special” will expire at 11:59 pm on December 31st, or when 300 individuals have registered … whichever comes first. This total price for three races is just about what some people pay for one race!
In the past, the 5430 Sprint would actually sell out – in excess of 1,600 athletes – in just three weeks; and, this joint venture hopes for much of the same… although, all races will initially be limited to the first 1,200 registered to maintain the small and local feel.
So what else can you expect for the 2017 triathlon season? We’ll continue to release fun news throughout the spring, but you can be sure to expect the Colorado Triathlon hooded sweatshirts, the famous Without Limits Slip n’ Slide, Flippin Flap Jacks and Wahoos Fish Tacos catering the races, and so many more new additions this season!
