In my last entry, I ranted about the approximate 50% increase in a race fee. I have since discovered some good news.
There is a local multisport store and a timing chip company who have partnered together to offer races for 10 bucks a pop. That's right, 10 bucks!
You do have to be a USAT member, though. No problem. Already am.
There is no swag, no food, no drinks, no awards. No problem. Will be bringing my own and I never podium anyway.
They're offering five of these races throughout the summer on Wednesday nights at the same state park. Our tri club trains there every Saturday in all three events, so it'll have the feel of a training day, just with a little more pressure to speed up in Transition.
In my quest to save money, I plan on doing at least three of these, and am very excited that they're giving folks this opportunity.
I'll let you know how they go.
