OK, here's the site:

 

www.ohiotri.com

I know we're strong on the Central Ohio races. We took everything that was on trifind for Ohio, plus HFP, plus Ultra-Fit. But we are still missing some, especially in the other metro areas.

Let me know what races to add!

Looks good.  You are missing the Sylvania TRI/Du on August 11.  It's put on by Elite Endeavors.

Great resource! I'm a digital project manager in my day job so I have a few comments for whatever it's worth..

- Will you be setting the RACE CALENDAR as the blog setting rather than the index? Then having the HOME be the actual index?

- Any way of giving each race enter a large, dedicated post title? I like that the title is the external link within each post, but having all that type the same size gets overwhelming to read through. Larger headers would break up that flow nicely.

Keep up the good work!

The light blue lettering is difficult to read against the green background especially since I have bad up close vision from years of looking at computer screens. But I think its great to have one site for all the races. Thanks for your time and effort.

Blue lettering? Green background?

Does anyone see this? It's looks like orange and black letters on a white background to me.

I think I took care of the second item. I'm working on specifying location in the settings for each race.

For the first question, we are using an events plugin, not blog posts, for each events. That is why it's acting a little weird. But the homepage displays the full list. The item in the tab is really kind of useless and I may just take it out of the menu.

Thanks for the work in setting this up!

You may also want to check out www.speedy-feet.com.  They don't do alot of tri's, but do some.  They have a wed night tri-series which is nice.  Also do a canoe tri series which may not be suitable for your site.
