Many people complain about how races are run in Ohio, entry fees exorbinate, races are the same every year, noone cares about results accuracy, I get nothing for my entry fee, no one cares about my safety, though nothing ever changes.

In the past 3 years we have turned the Ohio Cycling world on its ear, and now our intention is to do the same to Triathlon/Duathlon.  

Our races are for the RACERS!

Miami-Erie Canal Triathlon-Duathlon (CANOE) 5/24 (the old St.Marys Triathlon)

Ohio Triathlon Series

July 12, 2009 Grand Lake Triathlon/Duathlon (open water swim) Expo, live music on the lakefront on July 11th.  Celina Ohio

August 22, 2009 Mideast Ohio Triathlon/Duathlon (pool swim) We will now be the promoter of this 5th year event.  Greenville Ohio

September 6, Richmond Triathlon/Duathlon (open water swim).  Richmond endurance sports festival (6-7-8), Bike race, bike time trial, bike tour, 10k run, kayak/canoe float, EXPO, and a party at the warehouse.

 

We guarantee: SAFE, UNIQUE, Fun, races for all no matter what your ability or experience.

Thanks for the information Roger. I have been vocal with critisism of some local races. My two biggest complaints are with race results and lack of rule enforcement on the bike course.Thank for focusing on racers. I'll look up your races while considering my 2009 schedule.Thomas

July 12's Grand Lake Triathlon is growing. Our intent was to use the awesome venue of the lakeshore drive for the race on Sunday only, though it has snowballed from there.

 Now with community involvement on July 11 a health and fitness expo, a live band  in the evening and a movie on the lakeshore at dark, kids races, kids bike repair and safety checks from the local Police.

Local Rotary club will have a breakfast food stand for spectators/familys on raceday

Local Lions club will have a BBQ chicken dinner on site for after the race

On race day we will have large inflateables for the kids to play on and there is a brand new modern park with childrens playset at the site.

If you would like to spend the nite there are several hotels near the lake, though book now.

www.seemore.org is the local CVB site

I am going to agree with RBowersock here. I missed the Oly loop at Buck Creek last year as the turn was on the road and not very clear. I heard several folks complain after the race. Overall though HFP runs good fun races at a good price.

Well despite my best efforts of having a race on a date when there are no others, Ultra Fit has decided to move The outer limits from a Mid August Date to July 12, the same date as our Grand Lake race.

You now have a choice.
