I am somewhat annoyed that TriFind doesn't have the HFP races on it, nor ultrafit.

If I created an online race calendar only for tris and only for Ohio, would anyone use it?

I think I could set it up fairly quickly, unless it already exists.

Absolutely!  I try to do as many races as I can close to home to help with costs and limit vacation time used.

As an event promoter/athlete/coach I can tell you this. 

1) race directors must list their events on these sites, which takes work on their part, they do not just magically appear. 

2) so many of the caledars are cliquish and include/exclude information based upon friends/past dealing/grudges etc

OK, I'm going to work on this in between other projects.
I realize I will have to actively go get the races and put them in myself, because Roger is right, they don't magically show up. Race directors have enough places to post to right now.

But I already know there are 20 on trifind, and that doesn't include HFP, Ultra-fit, & Greenswell. I plan to count on you guys in other cities to give me a heads' up on missing races in other areas. I can also check tri clubs in the major cities. 

 

I think if it were really comprehensive, I might someday be able to sell ads on it. For now I can do AdSense ads and make $1.26/year and pay for the site over the course of my long, long life. ;-)
