Tri for Ole Glory - Free Photos

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!????
