Final Iron Abe & Route 66 Half Iron Shirt Deadline

Good Evening,

It is with a heavy heart and a glass of red that I write the FINAL shirt reminder for the Iron Abe Olympic and Route 66 Half Iron Triathlons.

Since we can no longer use those names or logos we will not be ordering many extras so if you want a piece of central Illinois Triathlon history, register tonight.

If you want to commemorate the end of the Era by racing either event and also have the shirt to prove it, please register by 11:00pm tonight.

To send the events off in style, we will be raffling off 1 Giro Synthe Aero Helmet and 1 Giro Synthe MIPS Aero helmet along with other prizes throughout the day.  No cost to enter but you need to race to be eligible for the drawings.

While the new Abe’s Olympic name has been decided upon, we are asking for your input and your vote for a new name for the Route 66 Long Course Triathlon.

At packet pickup or on race day, vote for a name on the board.  Or if none appeal to you, add a new race name and see if others vote for it.

When all votes are counted and issues resolved, we will announce the new name of this already established race.

See you Saturday and let’s send the races off in style with PR’s for all.
