Great idea! Of course no idea what the Cup Races will be but that certainly looks like something I would see if I could do to earn a free race.

The North Carolina series awards banquet is next Sunday.  Look for more information then.

I'll see what additional information I can get from Andrew this weekend at Pinehurst, too.

ETA: I posted before I read the article.  I first learned of the Set Up Cup at the White Lake International race.  I talked to Andrew and he said they were trying to get athletes to cross state lines to do different races.  You will have to do 5 designated races to qualify for the Set Up Cup.  Each series will only have 3 designated races, so athletes will have to race in multiple states (But, it may be possible for people to race only in NC if the schedule works out between the Inside Out sports Series and the Trysports series).

Amazed that no one race is in Charlotte - every thing is east of Greensboro and in the lower part of the state. 

Trying to boost attendance?

They announced at the banquet that the Lake Hickory Tri has been added to the IOS calendar for 2013. They are also trying to add a half in the fall in Charlotte. Location and date have not been announced for this.

The 2013 calendar will be announced Nov 1.

Yes, Cane Creek is one of the Set Up Cup qualifier races in the TrySports Series.  The other races in that series are Granite Falls (99% sure on this one) and Kerr Lake (not so sure about this one).

Set Up Events has announced the race for April 26 in Arrapahoe NC. Anybody got any thoughts? After Pinehurst I will have qualified for this event.

I'm qualified - we're looking to stay in New Bern. My husband and one of our daughters may race the next day, they are supposed to have a sprint race at the same location.

Assuming I survive tomorrow (Pinehurst) I will have qualified. I'm in no kind of shape to tackle an Olympic distance but I only need one more race to qualify for the Cup. Just make it to the finish!
