Tri for Ole Glory
Jul 3 @ 7:00 am – 10:30 am
Tri for Ole Glory

Team Rocket Tri Club has partnered with the U.S. Space and Rocket Center to produce a reverse order Off Road Triathlon to showcase the property surrounding the USSRC and The Huntsville Botanical Garden. Huntsville’s growing need for a family friendly mountain bike/running trail located near UAH and close to town, makes this a perfect venue. This annual event will provide charitable funds for the U.S. Space and Rocket Center Space Camp Scholarship Fund.

Course Description

As a reverse order Sprint Distance Triathlon, this fun race begins with a 3.1 mile run that is on a mix of dirt, gravel and pavement surfaces. Racers will transition to an 8 mile mountain bike course that slips through a wide variety of hardwoods, cedar and pine groves. You will get to see numerous airplanes, rockets and space equipment as you wind though a course that looks flat but will fool you with climbs and twists, creek crossings and jumps. Finally racers will be able to cool off with a 200 meter swim in the Aviation Challege swim area. Never deeper than 4 feet, tired swimmers have the ability to stand up and catch their breath if needed. This swim venue is considered beginner friendly. Awards will follow the race in the shade of the covered pavilion, affectionally known as the Bubble at the USSRC.

Wet Dog Sprint Tri @ Point Mallard Park Decatur
Jul 10 @ 7:00 am – 10:00 am

After a year of no dogs, Big Brothers Big Sisters has decided that we missed y’all way too much! The staff and Board of Directors sat down, hashed it out, and made a BIG decision to BRING BACK THE DOG!

This is still a fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters serving Morgan, Lawrence, Winston and Cullman Counties and a very major fundraiser at that! There are some BIG changes though, the main one being the DATE!

In order to make our race appealing to more people and not be in competition with other local races, we have decided to move it to MAY 19TH, 2018. The venue, Point Mallard Park, is still the same and the start time is also the same, 7:00 a.m. The water park will be CLOSED, so traffic issues and parking issues are no long issues! We are set to be one of the first triathlons in our area…what an awesome way to train and get ready for the bigger ones!

On-line registration should be open this afternoon! There are some “Early Dog” specials that will end on February 15th, so for the best deals GO AHEAD AND REGISTER!

As always, we are available to answer any and all questions, either through email to wetdog@bbbsmcal.org OR by phone, 256-353-0157. Feel free to reach out to us with any questions, issues, or just to say HI!

WE ARE SO EXCITED TO BRING BACK THE DOG!????

This is a great race for your 1st open water swim!

Located at 4701 Slalom Run in Owens Cross Roads, AL, the Racing Rivals Triathlon is a sprint distance tri that raises funds for college scholarships. The event is hosted by the Huntsville-area alumni chapters of Auburn University, Mississippi State University and the University of Alabama. The funds raised by this event will be split by the chapters based on the affiliation designated by each race participant during registration. In addition to the exciting individual competition, there will be a “rivalry” competition between the fans of each school and the winning chapter will the awarded a grand trophy and bragging rights for the next year. This will be an exciting competitive atmosphere with the thrill of the race and the anticipation of being on the eve of football season! The race will originate from Clearwater Lake in Owens Cross Roads, a beautiful private lake nestled in the valley just east of Green Mountain. The lake was designed and is used primarily for competitive water skiing. The very clear water and relatively shallow depths allow for excellent conditions for the swim portion of the competition.
