Subject: Does Pittsburgh Tri sell out?

Hi all,

I'm figuring out my summer schedule, and might be in Pittsburgh during the Pittsburgh Triathlon. Since it's my hometown I'd love to race, but I can't commit for a few more weeks until I work some things out. Anybody know if and when the (oly) usually sells out?

Thanks!

Starting last year they split the races up over the weekend. The sprint and adventure race on Saturday and the oly on Sunday. Their website says they can take up to 1,000 each day. Last year's results shows 358 for the oly. Doesn't look like it's going to sell out.

I ran the oly two years ago and really enjoyed it.

I don't believe it sells out.

Steel City Endurance is the official coaching provider of the event, so we'll be there with a tent, and a couple of us tentatively plan on doing the races.

If you do the race, please stop by our tent and introduce yourselves!

Cool...thanks for the info. It's looking pretty likely that I'll be there. If so, I'll definitely stop by your tent, Don.

Hey guys, I know this thread is from last year, but this is technically about last years race, so I'm bumping this thread.

I was looking at the race photos from the Pittsburgh Tri and it seems that no one was wearing a wet suit of any kind. I saw a lot of speed suits, but no wetsuits. What was the water temperature? If they weren't allowed due to temperature, is that common?

It just surprises me a little bit that if they were allowed there weren't more people wearing them.


Just curious. I'm trying to figure out if this race can fit into my schedule for 2014.

Thanks

it was wetsuit optional at the last minute (race day AM). the day before they announced water temp and no wetsuit. So a lot of folks taht might have worn them did not have them. The river temp can fluctuate quickly so there's no good way to predict. Just bring your wetsuit.
