TriOKC’s first event of 2013 was great! Over 200 participants registered for March In Okarche Duathlon! Mother nature gave us a damp, nearly windless, 50 degree day to race- not as great as last year, but much better than most MIO forecasts. Thank you to the participants, race staff, and everyone who came out to volunteer & cheer the athletes on!
MIO was the 1st leg of the TriOKC Duathlon Series. The series is a 3 leg event, in which you must complete at least 2 of our duathlons to qualify. If you “du” all 3, we take your 2 highest scores. Further detail on qualification & series results from MIO are now uploaded on the Messageboard.
We love our Du Series so much, that we’ve now created a Splash N Dash Aquathlon Series. More info will be posted soon, but the first leg will be the “Cinco or Swim” SND on May 5th at Lake Thunderbird. We’ll also be having many Social SNDs at Arcadia Lake thorughout the summer. These are perfect opportunities for both new triathletes to get a taste for open water swimming, as well as for others to catch up with all our multisport friends. Arcadia Lake charges a small admission fee into the lake, but our Social events are completely free of charge. Be sure to hang around afterward for the cookout!
April is a month we typically reserve for the OKC Memorial Marathon. We will not plan on an April club meeting, so our next club meeting will be the El Reno Splash N Dash on 5/28. We will plan on participating in some weekend events in April, though. We’ve had a few members volunteer to lead group rides at Lakes Draper & Hefner. We hope to finalize those dates & get them posted soon. If you’re interested in being a group ride leader, & would like to invite TriOKC members to participate, please post your plans on the TriOKC Messageboard, under “Group Rides”.
Happy & Safe Training!
