Tips for Beginning Swimmers
Click here. Especially like #4. So many benefits to fins. Also like the tip about an extra pair of goggles race day but not for their reason. Dropped my goggles standing in the porta pot line at IMMD in the dark. Luckily I was able to go back and find them but for a few nervous minutes I sure did wish I had left an extra pair in the transition area.

Seven Tri Bikes on a Budget
These turned out to be a little pricier than I anticipated when I first saw this article with an average of $3,000. If this is in your price range, then these are some nice rides for the money. Don't forget we get a discount on Trek bikes at Newark Bikeline.

Tri-Dawg Race Schedule
The races listed below are the ones that we will focus on as a club. Our goal again is to win the Greater Atlantic Club Championship so we encourage you to enter other Piranha races not listed below. If you are thinking about doing a 70.3 or a full IM, I recommend Eagleman 70.3 (still open) and IMMD (limited entries) listed below as we will have quite a few Tri-Dawgs training for those races. As of today registration is still open for them.

REV3 Rush
Richmond, VA on May 30-31, 2015 at the Richmond International Raceway for a weekend of exciting racing that is a RUSH!!!!
REV3 Rush is a triathlon distance of 250-meter swim, 5-mile bike, and a 1.25-mile run. The swim will be in a 25 meter pool in the center of the raceway. The bike will go along the track and allows drafting or riding in a pack. The run will circle the infield. Each athlete will race a minimum of two races and a maximum of six races, with various races through the preliminary heats. The fastest times will then move on to a semi or final heat. In addition, each athlete has the option of racing in a mixed team relay which will be included in the athlete’s entry fee. On Sunday, the fastest age groupers will compete against each other to determine the overall champion
