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.

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.

   

 

 

Virginia Athletes Racing in 2017

 
 

The athletes below will be competing (or expressed their intent to compete) in 2017. 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. The dates for 2017 are 4-8 October for the Triple ANVIL, 5-8 October for the Double ANVIL and for the Single, you can start either with the Triple or Double athletes.

Good luck to all!
