It's finally here!

The 20th annual BSM Celebration of LIfe Triathlon is finally here! Good luck and fingers crossed that the air quality will cooperate with us this morning. There is no additional information at this time. Once we're up at the lake, there is little to no cell service so there will be no futher updates until at least early afternoon. See you at the lake!

Bike racks for our 20th annual event!

Probably the biggest change triathletes will notice at this year's 20th annual BSM Celebration of Life Triathlon will be BIKE RACKS! We are excited to offer bike racks in the transition area this year for competitors. For those women who haven't used a rack in competition before, there will be a sample set up at the Event Expo, Sept. 20 to check out, along with Coach Scott Beesley from Soles Inspired Triathlon Club, who will be giving a transition area demo/presentation every 20 minutes starting at 10:40am. that day.

First Timer's Clinic begin next week

What happened to the lazy days of summer? It's already July and things are well underway for the 20th annual BSM Celebration of Life Triathlon. A sure sign that the event is quickly approaching? The clinics begin next week! Join us Wednesday for the First Timer's Clinic at Club Sierra. This clinic is for anyone who is considering doing the triathlon this year for the first time, or those already committed to train for our event, but haven't done it in the past. Join Amanda Holsopple and members of the BSM Triathlon committee to learn more about the event.

Things are heating up

It's not just the weather that's heating up this week. Plans for the 2013 BSM Tri are well underway. Our fearless leader Nancy Availla spent some time on the air this morning at KNCO and The Star, our free clinics continue tonight (Tuesday) and this weekend (see below for more details) and women have been spotted around town, at the lake and on Facebook hard at work training. There are only two months to go!

Just a reminder that the 2013 clinics begin tomorrow with the First Timers/Training Clinic at Club Sierra from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. A complete list of training clinics is available under the Event Information link.
