34th Annual St. Anthony’s Triathlon – Florida Regional Championship

usat-fla-2017

In just two days, our Regional Championship is going to be held on the weekend of April 28 – 30, 2017 in St. Petersburg, FL in the St. Anthony’s Triathlon Olympic distance. Athletes from almost every state in the nation and many foreign countries will be on hand to compete in St. Anthony’s Triathlon, described by many as one of the year’s best multi-sport events in the United States.

The weekend will open at noon on Friday with athlete check-in at St. Petersburg’s beautiful Straub Park. Several members of USA Triathlon’s Florida Region will be on hand all weekend to assist athletes with the check-in process, provide information about the races and answer questions about fun things to do in St. Petersburg.

Also in Straub Park, the Sports & Fitness Expo will open from noon on Friday until 6 P.M. In addition, to several seminars on running and bicycling, if you’ve forgotten a piece of necessary gear or just want something new, there will be plenty of vendors on-site to provide you with that must-have piece of equipment. In addition, the Florida Regional Officials Coordinator will offer a three-hour official’s clinic for those that want to become certified USA Triathlon officials. To register for the officials clinic, contact FloridaROC@msn.com.

Saturday’s Meek & Mighty Triathlon will begin in the 50-meter pool at the North Shore Aquatic Complex. Featuring a time-trial pool swim, there will be two races offered, one for ages 7 – 10 and another for ages 11 and over. Following a bike race along St. Petersburg’s scenic open waterfront, a new run course this year will add to the excitement

Sunday features the weekend’s main event, the 34th annual St. Anthony’s Triathlon. The race will serve as the Florida Region’s 2017 Regional Championship. As always, some of the best male and female elite athletes in the world will be competing for significant prize money.

USA Triathlon’s Florida Region is excited and proud to be an integral part of this longstanding event. See you there. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

ALL BIKES USED IN A USA TRIATHLON-SANCTIONED EVENT MUST HAVE ONE WORKING BRAKE ON EACH OF THE TWO WHEELS

no_brakes_fixiedAccording to rule number 5.11j under Bicycle Specifications in the USA Triathlon Competitive Rule Book, “There must be one working brake on each of the two wheels.” When USAT officials walk through the transition area prior to the beginning of the race, this is one of the things that they will be checking on each bike. If an official finds a bike with only one brake, that athlete will be advised that their bicycle is illegal for use in the event. They will be disqualified; the race director will remove the bike from transition and the athlete will not be allowed to go out on the course. Remember, it’s up to the athlete to know the rules.

Looking For Race Officials

usat-official-cartoon

The Florida Region is looking for USA Triathlon members that would like to become certified as referees. Officiating at triathlons is a fantastic way to be involved in the sport.

What’s it take,” you ask? To become a USA Triathlon official, you must be a member of USA Triathlon, be in good physical condition, weigh less than 200 pounds and be capable of riding for hours at a time as a passenger on a motorcycle.

You also need to attend a 3-hour certification clinic held in conjunction with a USA Triathlon sanctioned triathlon or duathlon. There you learn about the USA Triathlon officials’ program and the competitive rules. The following day, you actually work at an event as an official under supervision of the head referee.
