First Ever Social Distancing TriAugusta-FatMan’s Virtual Triathlon Series
You now have until 3/31/2021 to enter! Slots are limited so sign up today.
Most if not all of our local triathlon races for 2020 have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic but we are training to keep in shape so why not get a unique medal for those training miles you are putting in as well as provide a fundraiser for the club. To get ready for the 2021 season, TriAugusta in association FatMan’s is continuing the first ever Social Distancing TriAugusta – Fatman’s Virtual Triathlon Series until 3/31/2021. Signup is only $20 for each event distance (verified TriAugusta club members in good standing will receive a $5 discount). Slots remaining are limited so signup now!
There is a series of 4 completion medals – made out of wood versus metal by a local craftsman/vendor in the CSRA with a lanyard to display in your trophy case. After you complete the distances specified and post proof in our TriAugusta Strava Club, you will receive in the mail (or arrangements made for local pickup) the medal for the distance you completed. We have the following distances logo’d to include TriAugusta as well as the FatMan’s restaurants in the CSRA:
You will need to complete each leg of the distance in one training outing in any order – without regard to transition times. For example: if you signup for the Olympic/International, you will have to post a bike distance completed for 40 K (` 25 miles’ish), a 10 K run and a 1500 meter swim to qualify for the completion medal. The swim can be a pool swim or open water swim. NOTE: If you are unable to post a swim segment due to C19 restrictions in your area, then you can do an “Alternate Activity” e.g., double run or double bike or equivalent strength training workout you would equate to your normal swim time – just annotate performance on the comment section in Strava. When you receive the medals, you can write on them with permanent marker when you completed the distances – your PRs or whatever you like.
- Sprint (500 meter swim, 20 K bike, and 5 K run) (oval – SoSal)
