Anyone qualify for and racing the 2013 USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships in Milwaukee?

I qualified, but that's just too far to travel.

Hope that, in the future, it's at a more central location. I would love to race one of these.

I qualified but unless Southwest flies CLT to Milwaukee, I probably won't go.  Southwest doesn't start flying out of CLT until April.

I qualified for this years...like two week before the actual race (which had been sold out for months). I totally would have gone to Vermont (long drive but I have parents in PA to split up the trip).  They did roll that qualification to 2013 also.  

Their notification is very staggered.  I got notification on Wednesday and another today (different race) that I qualified.  I also should have gotten another notification so they still may be coming out.

I think Milwaukee would be a fun place for a long weekend.

What distance is the race? Can only certain "approved" races allow you to qualify?

Olympic. To qualify you have to finish top 10% of your age group at any distance USAT sanctioned race. So if 20 people in your age group at a race, you need to be top 2.

I've gone the past two year to Burlington, VT to support one of our sponsored teams.   It's quite the drive from Jax, NC, but, as of right now, Milwaukee is just too far.  The events are great, but there are loads of logistics.

Strange, if that's the case, I qualified earlier in the year at BeaverDam...Never got a notification or anything. I was 2AG. Maybe that wasn't top 10%, though. Will have to look now.

I bet attending one of these races would be pretty awesome.

Congrats, Alan!

USAT is pretty bad about notifying you. I qualified a couple of times and only found out when I was fiddling around on the website. Anyway, there are multiple quali stds. I think it is top 10% but if there are more than X in your AG then it is also top 3. Anyway, I would bet you qualified at every race you did last year d00d, even though USAT might not have notified you. I am bummed they moved it to Milwakee because Vermont sounded awesome- almost went last year but vacation and other priorities crept in. Still, was thinking of doing it if it were in VT. I have no desire to haul over to Milwaukee to do a race...

I was 2AG in my first race and 1AG in my last race. The other races I participated in I was not even close to podium.

Yeah, USAT is terrible about keeping real time stats and notifications...unless it's about payment.
