Tri-Family Racing has updated the Current Youth & Adult Sprint Triathlon Championship standings for all Tri-Family Racing participants at trifamilyracing.com. You are already entered in the championships if you have finished in the top ten in any of our 2013 races. To view how you are doing, simply go to the trifamilyracing.com home page and click on the Current Youth & Adult Sprint Triathlon Championship standings, from there you can also view the series rules, how you are doing compared to everyone else, and the different age groups for the series. See if you are qualified for the championship which requires completing at least one of our last three races.
Our awards dinner for the championship will begin at approximately 4:30pm at the Carlos O’Brien’s Mexican Restaurant at 1133 E. Northern Ave, Phoenix (southwest corner of Northern and 12th street) on Sunday December 8, 2013. This year like last year we will also have a raffle benefitting Desert Mission where each race entrant will receive one ticket with additional tickets being sold for your chance to get one of four bikes as well as many numerous gift certificates. We will also have many of our future 2014 Triathlons on sale for discounted prices. We will also give one raffle ticket for every three cans of food collected. All food and 100% of the proceeds from the raffle will benefit the Desert Mission. This year Giant bicycles and Valdora bicycles will be presenting four lucky triathletes (two youth and two adults) with a bicycle at our Championship dinner at our awards presentations as well as some awesome acrylic plaques to the top three in all age groups. We will also have gift certificates for each race entrant that is first in their age group. No need to RSVP, simply mention you are with the Triathlon awards ceremony. Best seating close to the festivities will fill up quickly.
Happy training, Mark Konietzka
Race Rules: Besides the obvious such as not doing enough laps on the bike, we also do not allow any listening devices during any portion of the race, there is no diving into the pool, all entry will be feet first, everyone must wear a timing chip on their left ankle, everyone must wear their helmet from the time they touch their bikes to the time they re-rack their bike. No un-bucking the helmet as you enter that transition area, please wait until your bike is racked to do that. All swim strokes MUST be always looking forward, no back stroke allowed. The swim exit is defined by exiting at the ladder or the end of the swim lane, failure to do so results in a time penalty or disqualification. When finishing the run (end of race) you need to make sure your race number is on the front of you so we can announce you crossing the finish line. Failure to follow these rules will results in disqualification or a time penalty (race Director’s discretion).
