Lost and Found 2013

Monday, August 19, 2013

We have a girl's blue helmet and a clinique lipstick left at Saturday's event.  Let me know if they are yours.

Also, I'm working on a link to the results.  It will be on here ASAP!

We were shorted medals, they were ordered today and will be mailed to all 5-6 year olds.  I'm so sorry for the mix up!

Thank you to all parents and participants for making our 3rd triathlon a success!  There were 95 that signed up and 93 showed up, that's got to be a record for any event!

A BIG thank you to all the volunteers that made Saturday a success!!!!  We couldn't have the event without each and every person there.  Thank you!  Keeli

2013 Participants


This is the finish line last year...we moved it down the hill

up the hill....:)

Just a little info about next Saturday's triathlon, we have 44 participants registered so far!  This is more than last year at this point.  Just to let you all know, the fabulous Conway Kids Triathlon was canceled a week ago due to rain and lightning.  They had 355 kids totally disappointed.  Their race director emailed us last week about our kids tri.  We are excited to welcome the Conway and Little Rock area participants to East Arkansas.  We hope you are impressed by our part of the state!  The Crowley's Ridge Country Club will be open for lunch 11-2 with grilled burgers and hot dogs as their specialty.  So grab a bite if you'd like before you head out!

In the past, we've averaged 55 participants and will most likely have more this year.  Having said that, we've beefed up the number of volunteers and aid station supplies.  We still have a cap of 100 for the event.

Weather-wise, it looks like 80 degrees and clear for Saturday's event.  Let's all keep our fingers crossed as today we have heavy rain and thunderstorms!  We look forward to a safe, fun event for participants and parents alike!  See you Saturday, registration opens at 7:30 and the transition area will close at 8:45, pre-race meeting will be at 8:45 am and we will start at 9:00 am.  - Keeli

Polar Bottles 2013 (no t-shirts this year!)

Monday, June 10, 2013

Becca and I have pooled most of the volunteers that have helped us pull off the kids triathlon and we've decided to do these reusable insulated bottles instead of t-shirts this year.  We're working on the order as we speak so I thought I'd put a couple of our choices on here.  NO T-SHIRT this year, but instead your participant will get this awesome insulated Polar Bottle with our logo on it!  Yippee!! We hope it'll jive with everyone! :)
This is one style bottle!

And another style!
