Junior Race

on . Posted in TCSD Pages

The Triathlon Club of San Diego, in association with TriJuniors, will conduct it's first junior draft-legal triathlon on May 22, 2010. The event will be open to all TCSD junior triathletes who would like to get experience in a draft-legal race. This will be considered a tune-up event for the USAT National Championship race on August 14, 2010 in San Diego.

The objective of the format is to transition athletes from entry-level youth, or “kids”, triathlons, into draft-legal youth elite and junior elite competition. This enables more young athletes to become competent in the draft-legal race format before committing to national-level events.

The race will consist of a 300m swim (2 loops with a short beach run), followed by a 12km bike (3 laps), and 3.2km run on TCSD's normal Fiesta Island course (see map below). Start time will be 6:45am - all racers will be encouraged to arrive no later than 6:00am. It is the responsibility of each racer to be prepared for riding in a pack. As such, the following bike rules will be in place:

  • Wheels must have at least 12 spokes
  • Regular, double-triangle frame, (Standard Road Bike)
  • Standard drop handle bars, (NO AEROBARS)
  • Bar ends must have plugs

Bikes will be checked to make sure they are legal before the race. If the racer is under 18, a waiver MUST be signed race morning by a parent or legal guardian. All racers must be members of the Triathlon Club of San Diego. Youth membership is $30 per year.

We also encourage your ideas and experiences from past Wildflowers -- what was good, what can we improve?

Wildflower FAQ

What do I need to do now?

Register and indicate TCSD as your club.  We will get a "rebate" of $10 for each club registrant.  This money will go directly toward Wildflower expenses such as the club dinner Saturday night.

Use the link below:
http://www.tricalifornia.com/index.cfm/register/

Do I pay for camping?  What is the camping pass all about?  Do I pay now?

You pay for camping in one of two ways.  If you are tent camping, you need a camping pass for the number of nights you will be at Wildflower between Thursday and Sunday.  The camping pass is PER CAR (TriCal wants us to carpool as it makes it easier to leave Sunday if there are fewer cars).  So, it is in your favor to share the expense with others and carpool either from San Diego or from Paso Robles, the nearest town.  (We will maintain a car pool roster to help members accomplish this).

If you have an RV, you pay for a designated space and that is also your camping pass.  You can try to get a space in the D loop where the TCSD camping area is but that is not guaranteed.

If you want a little more privacy or quiet, you can camp anywhere you like in the park and still hang out with TCSD.

If you are sure that you are driving, you can buy the pass now during registration.  If you aren't sure, you can wait and buy the pass later in March or April.

Where is Wildflower?
At Lake San Antonio recreational area in Monterrey County about 25 miles west of Paso Robles in Central California.  About a 6 hour drive from San Diego.

What is the course like?
On top of the official page maps, you can search for the course on your favorite GPS tracking site.
Here's the bike ride of the half: http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/fullscreen/27575590/
* more links will be added soon *


Do I have to camp? 
No, you can stay in Paso Robles but getting into the race on race day is a challenge.

TCSD Duathlon: Black Mountain

on . Posted in TCSD Pages

Powered by KASHI.

Our February Duathlon brings you through the beautiful rolling hills of some of San Diego's newest neighborhoods. The motto here is what goes down must go up!

The Duathlon will start at Black Mountain Ranch Community Park as your transition area. The runs will be on the scenic trails branching off from the park. The first run will be approximately 2 miles on designated trails. The bike portion is just over 11.5 miles long in a loop through the communities of Santaluz, Del Sur and 4S Ranch. There are nice bikes lanes with no left turns in traffic. You will finish the duathlon with the 2 mile run along the trail. As with all the sections, remember the motto...this is a leg burner. It's a challenging and hilly course, but very doable if you work within your level.

Date: February 12th

Start Time: 7:00AM

Location: Black Mountain Ranch Community Park
