Clydesdale and Athena National Championships

Chattanooga, TN

 

USA Triathlon is excited to head to Chattanooga, Tennessee for the 2019 Clydesdale & Athena National Championships! Hosted in conjunction with the Chattanooga Waterfront Triathlon, the sprint and Olympic-distance triathlons will take place along the Tennessee River in the heart of downtown Chattanooga, the “Best Adventure Town” in the US (as awarded by Outside Magazine in 2015).

The 2019 edition of the Chattanooga Waterfront Triathlon celebrates 15 years in the heart of downtown Chattanooga, brought to you by Chattanooga Track Club and Team Magic.  Be ready for a fast, down river swim, a spectator friendly two-loop bike course and a scenic run along the city’s Tennessee Riverwalk.  This downtown triathlon takes the place of the popular Chattanooga Dam Triathlon of years past and the original Riverbend Triathlon from over 30 years ago. Traditionally an intermediate distance race only, a sprint distance was added in 2016, bringing an additional option for those new to the sport or those that prefer the shorter distance. The intermediate/Olympic-distance has held the honor of USAT Southeast Regional Championship many times in the past, and in 2018 served as the Mideast Regional Championship.

Zwift National Championships – Will you Participate?

D3 coach Jim Hallberg has this to say about the upcoming Zwift National Championships:

The middle of winter is an unusual time for a national championship… but this virtual event is a good way to check your FTP and overall fitness.

Even if this race might feel out of your league, any Zwift race can really test your fitness and push your limits.

Although you likely don’t want to be in great shape in February, it shakes up some competitive bike juices. If you are a triathlete, one of the best ways to get faster is to do a bike race with roadies. What better way than in a Virtual Championship!

About the Race:

The biggest one-day race of 2018 is almost here!

Zwifters from across the globe will battle for a year’s worth of bragging rights and the right to wear the National Championship jersey for 12 months.

Zwifters in 15 countries will battle it out. There will be a men’s race and women’s race in each. Each race will have just one winner.

Love, Loveland Lake to Lake on Valentines

By Bill Plock

Since 1947 the city of Loveland has been post marking Valentine Cards to send to loved ones all around the world. We thought we would throw a little triathlon love to the Lake to Lake Triathlon and ask a few participants why they love it so much.

Here are the top 10 reasons:

1. Peggy Shockley, race director, nice, caring, genuine and supportive
2. Beautiful bike course with views of Horsetooth reservoir and fun hills
3. The brunch at the end of the race is worth the price of admission alone!
4. Luscious grass to run on from swim exit to transition
5. Amazing volunteers
6. Run around the lake and downhill finish in statue park
7. The lake! Nice water, great beach8. Easy for families to watch

9. Great finish line!
10. It’s in Loveland!
