2012 USA Triathlon Florida Region Club Champions Crowned at Longleaf 

Sunday, October 14th approximately 100 members of thirteen USAT sanctioned clubs competed at the inaugural USA Triathlon Florida Region Club Championship. The Club Championship was held simultaneously with the Longleaf Triathlon. The Longleaf Triathlon and the Club Championship, both, consisted of two races, International and Sprint distances. Held in the beautiful rural community of Longleaf just east of New Port Richey Florida the venue included a fresh water swim, a single loop bike through parts of Starkey Wilderness Park, and a single loop run through the Longleaf area.

Each participant registered with a USAT sanctioned club earned points based on their finishing time (participation points) and distance traveled (travel points). USAT Florida Region council members David Benedetti, Jim Sheets and John Letourneau attended the event and spoke highly of the event organizers, the Rotary Club of Seven Springs. “These folks really put on a great day of racing, competing and fun! Planning for next year’s event is already underway and we are excited that, once again, the Longleaf Triathlon will be the region’s Club Championship,” John Letourneau.

Clubs competed against one another based on the membership size. Clubs were split into three Divisions: Division III clubs have fewer than 50 members, Division II between 50-99 members and Division I clubs have membership of 100 and above.

The Final Results are as follows

Division_I Division_II  Division_III 
1st Place Sarasota Storm Tri Club TriLewis Multisport Club (Clearwater Beach) Total Fitness Tri Club (Tarpon Springs)
2nd Place St. Pete Mad Dogs n/a Lakeland Landsharks

All USA Triathlon Florida Region sanctioned clubs are encouraged to compete with the hope that the annual Florida Region Club Championship becomes a major destination race for all clubs, statewide. Information will be distributed to clubs next month with details of the 2013 Club Championship so the event can be promoted and added to club calendars.

A video will be distributed to club presidents and will be posted on both the USAT Florida Region and Longleaf Triathlon websites. Please contact John Letourneau at johnletourneau@comcast.net with comments or questions.
