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.

   

 

 

Florida Athletes Racing in 2013

 
 

The athletes below will be competing (or expressed their intent to compete) in this years event. If they have an asterisk (**) before and after their name, that means they have registered and paid for the race. If there is only one asterisk (*), means they are pretty serious, more than just a dream - a wish, but haven't registered yet.

Good luck to all!
