Areyou up for an incredible challenge? On September 15th, New River Trail Challenge triathlon. This is not your normal triathlon, but one that will challenge you, or as most do, your team. The race consists of12 miles of kayaking, 13.1 miles of running and 40 miles of biking on the trail. Last year about one third of the participants did the race individually, while most that participated formed a team with each taking one leg of the course.
The 2012 race features three new team award categories: The Collegiate Challenge, with awards presented to the top three college or university teams; the Sponsor Challenge, with awards presented to the top three sponsor teams; and the Local Heroes Challenge, with awards to the top three teams made up of members of our military, police, sheriff offices, and fire and rescue squads.
This year I will be one of those "taking the challenge" with my team. Since I am a few years past the many 30 somethings that participate, it will be a challenge, but one I am looking forward to meeting. Cross training has already started as I conditionmy body and mind to push myself to the limit. I think it could be a lot of fun and a great motivator to get back in shape. Registration has already started and the race is limited to the first 300 people to sign up.Soget a team together or really challenge yourself and sign up as an individual or team today!
