First of all, thank you so much to everyone who came to the bike wash today! Shout out to everyone that helped make the fundraiser a success!!
Next, we have a really exciting weekend coming up.... It's time for.... MEMPHIS!! This weekend we have both first time racers and old timers driving to Memphis, TN for one of the craziest, best races of the year! If you are racing at Memphis start thinking about a personal goal that you would like to achieve. This can be anything from a specific place to simply surviving the swim (that's what I'm aiming for!) Also, start pulling together a playlist, it's going to be a loooong drive! This is our big event for the week, but here is run down on everything else we have going on!
Also, don't forget to wish your Moms Happy Mother's Day if you haven't already!!
Thanks again guys for your help at the bike wash! We will let you know how much money we raised soon!
Memphis is THIS WEEKEND!!! Get excited!!! Memphis is one of the coolest races we get to do! There are two distances, Sprint (swim 0.75k, bike 20k, run 5k) and Olympic (swim 1.5k, bike 40k, run 10k). We will be leaving this Friday, May 16th and we will have racers competing Saturday May 17th and Sunday May 18th!
2. Leaning Tower Triathlon - (May 18th - This Weekend!!):
If you cannot make it to Memphis, we will also be doing a sprint race in Niles, IL (close by) on May 18 called the Leaning Tower Triathlon. We strongly encourage this race if you cannot make it to Memphis, it’s a great opportunity to do your first race and get some more experience before summer racing season begins! Click here for Info about the Race!!
3. Triathlon Team Banquet!
Reserve Wednesday, June 4th from 5pm - 9pm during reading week for our team banquet! More details about the event to come next week!
4. Summer Racing!
If you are interested in racing at Nationals next year (April 2015), you must do at least 1 Olympic or sprint distance MECTC summer race! Nationals is an AMAZING experience and a great way to connect with the team! I HIGHLY encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity!
