New half distance triathlon in 2014 in Alton, IL.  I'm intrigued, as it is located near me (I live south of St. Louis).  Doesn't appear to be a real challenging course, but the time of year is good for closing the season on a high note. 

I have been pleased with other events produced by this race management team.  Looking forward to the registration opening on January 15th.

The swag looks cool:

Official Border War Custom Race Bib

Official Border War Swim Cap

Official Border War Race Bags (One for T1 Bag Check)

1 Sweet Swag Item-Official Border War Jacket

Official Border War Finisher Medal

I registered yesterday to take advantage of the bag upgrade.  They said they had 96 registrants as of this morning.  They are also giving out training shirts if you register before 1/31.  Your team is identified on the back (East vs West).  Good way to get your registrants to advertise for you.

Did either of you receive your T-shirt in the mail yet? The website said that they would be mailed out on Feb 1 but I have not seen it.

I haven't, but I thought I remembered seeing somewhere that the ship date was the 13th of Feb? Even if that was the case I'd expect to have received mine by now. Not that it matters all that much - too cold to bike or run in short sleeves yet anyways!

I contacted them on FaceBook on Sunday 2/23.  I received the following response that same day:

They are planned to go out this week...we are excited to get those early registered a sweet shirt to rock out! We will post here when they ship!

Nothing posted to FaceBook yet.

My first triathlon was at age 56. At first I was just the cameraman at my daughter's first triathlon, then I am doing the races that she has done.
