Stovepipe & Railsplitter Thoughts

Morning Triathletes,

We wanted to take a moment to thank everyone that raced today and let you know we set an attendance record.

We had alot of fun hosting the event and appreciate all the positive feedback and compliments.  They keep us going and striving to be better.

I just posted revised times since we knew the previous version was tentative due to some splits missing for the swim.

With regards to the swimmer who needed some assistance, and all the concern from you, it is with great pleasure I can say he is alright.  He was admitted into the hospital for some breathing treatments but was released the next day.  We have spoke with his family and all are good and his daughter got 2nd in her age group.  That is a family that tri’s together.

Please let me know your thoughts about keeping the race on Sunday, Fathers Day, or moving it back to Saturday?

And if you would like a Half Iron distance added for 2017?  It will be a 72.3 mile distance since the proposed course is a out and back with a loop that cannot be shortened.

Many thanks to everyone for making June the biggest turn out ever and get registered for July.

We have seen record crowds for both April and June events so July should be real close to hitting or exceeding 700 racers.


Thank you and keep Tri’ing Harder.
