Men’s Fitness & Tri Harder – Interview

Hey All,
As you may know the management at Tri Harder and Tri Smarter not only produce events, we race in events.
We have raced at all levels and in many countries including the Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Austria and events in Canada, Ireland and Puerto Rico.
In 2018 we have been invited to the Ironman European World Championship in Germany and have the incredible honor to be coached by IM legend Mark Allen.
While this will be a 140.6 event, we favor and hold dear the 70.3 mile events since anyone with ambition and training can complete and enjoy the Half Iron Distance Triathlon (or Long Course Triathlon in USAT terms).
The following article appears in Men’s Fitness, a national magazine focusing on health and fitness, and discusses the Half Iron Distance Triathlon. Tri Harder was interviewed due to our racing credentials and production of quality events at all distances.
We are honored to be included in the discussion and look forward to many new Half Iron racers at this year’s July 28th Route 66 Half Iron in Springfield, IL.
Please take a moment to read the article and do some research on Gale Bernhardt, the US Olympic Coach and person I chose to get me to my first 140.6 and 70.3 triathlons.
She has great training plans for beginners and seasoned triathletes.

See you soon.
