To those I have communicated with regarding Jr. triathletes/triathlon.......it's time to register if you (your kids) want to compete in the Jr./Youth elite series.  There are only 3 races around the country which are qualifiers for the National Championship race in Ohio.  These races are draft legal and only let 75 kids in.  Registration is open now for Monroe, Washington and Richmond, Va.  The Flatland cup in Des Moines opens on 1/4.  If you want to race you almost MUST register in the first 48 hours or the races will be full.  You can find links to the race web sites/registration through the USAT site or PM me and I'll send a link.

That is all.

The race in RIchmond, VA is well run and is an all day event so your kids could race throughout the morning/ afternoon and adults by 5 PM.  There are lots of  family friendly activities available on site too.

All true!!  A great event!  Richmond and Monroe have adult races the same day, Des Moines and Westchester, Ohio do not.  Each event is run as a first class deal with transition areas like all ITU events, and all are held on closed courses.

If you happen to live close, come watch......you will likely see a future US Olympian.

I've worked that Monroe race with PowerBar. I can't remember for the life of me if it was last year or the year before.

Have gone to that one? I think they have an event for non juniors, too. So you could race if you wanted.

I couldn't believe how many CRAZY parents there were! Ha!

HA!!  Everybody has the next Olympian, don't you know?

We were there last year, may not make it this year because he wants to do the Chicago race which is the following weekend.  I'm good with that choice....that trip was really expensive for us.

Yes, last year the first race was open, and a lot of fun from what I saw.  It's a really nice course, very flat and very fast....and closed.  That race is really well run as well.
