December 2013 Poem

The following poem was penned by Sarah Speicher, who completed the October 2013 Virginia Double ANVIL. She's a poet and we didn't know it.

ANVILIZATION

Twisting and turning all through the night
Heart beat pounding through the invasive fright
Rising to eat hours before daylight
Foam rolling and stretching to avoid the dreaded tight

Consider Helping Race Staff out or be a Support Crew for a racer

Are you thinking of tackling the Double or Triple ANVIL Triathlon. Have you upped your training which should consist of some overnight training and sleep deprivation. What else might be invovled in a successful finish for you? Think about coming out and helping either the race management OR crew for an athlete. Not all athletes can bring their own support crew, usually it's a money issue with having to travel a long distance.

But either way - you will see how the race unfolds, what atheltes are doing right, do wrong. Will answer some of your questions and make you think of other things you hadn't thought of. Email Steve Kirby at steve@USAUltraTri.com for more information and to be added to the list.

**Every athlete has his or her specific goals and reasons for racing in whatever event he or she chooses; but overall most would agree that the journey to the finish line is what resonates in most athletes’ minds.    Ultra-distance Athlete and Author, Wayne Kurtz


**Been thinking about how much admiration and affection I have regarding fellow Double Anvil athletes, staff, volunteers and crew. Many of you, I know very little about, so how can I like you so much??? Think I figured it out this morning. Throughout the race weekend, I was able to see many of you at your worst moments -feeling anxious, exhausted, cold, hot, hungry, nauseous, in pain, and even despair while in pursuit of your own dreams. Yet, even in your darkest moments, each one of you was able to show concern for those around you - sharing an encouraging word, a smile, your own supplies and equipment, whatever was needed.

So, while I may not know everything about you, I do know everything I need to know about you. I've seen the qualities within you that make you so inspiring!

Looking forward to racing with each of you again! (and my apologies to anyone I've missed!)

27 September 2017

Welcome to the 2017 Edition of the Virginia Ultra Fest weekend featuring the Triple, Double and Single ANVIL Triathlon. We have some links below explaining FaceBook, and two different sets of timing results.

You can follow FaceBook updates at our USA Ultra Triathlon web page at this link click here



We have two different links for the Virginia results. The first link is the automatic results being uploaded from the timing computer. The other results is a Excel Spreadsheet that we will update every few hours (try to) and upload. This one will have the swim finish, the bike start and show the transition time and we will put what lap of the bike (or the run when they get to it) when we do the update.

The automatic results upload click here for Results Page.



The Excel Spreadsheet click here; there are 3 tabs at the bottom showing Triple, Double and Single ANVIL.
