The Black Butte Triathlon is returning for 2018 and CTC will be putting it on. The race

will be taking place on Saturday, September 15. Registration is now open. There will be a race reimbursement program for CTC members. Details for race reimbursement are coming soon. For more information go to http:// blackbuttetriathlon.org

The Summer Party was held June 10 at Scotty’s. We hope you all had a great time! Thanks to our sponsors who donated all of the raffle goodies.

Tri 101 was held June 16th at Black Butte. We got a great swim, bike, and run workout on the course of the upcoming race.

Total Body Fitness will be holding their second Tri for Fun of the year on July 14 at Rancho Seco. They have added a team challenge for this race. There will be awards for the fastest team and the team with the most participants. It would be great to see CTC show up and strut our stuff.

Training:

Training is in full swing. People are out swimming riding and running everyday. Keep an eye on the Facebook group for updates. If you don’t see a workout that fits your schedule, feel free to post yours and invite others to join you.

The 50 rides meet on Wednesday in front of Rosedale Elementary. They start At the spring time change, and end near the fall time change

Two groups meet at 5:30PM. If you don’t know which group is which, ask!

The Fun 50, which is a no drop ride with a very casual feel. Expect to see speeds at 16-18MPH

The Fit 50, as the name suggest is a bit more racey. Certain sprints along the way and more aggressive ride expect to see speeds of 18-24 MPH

At 6:00PM

The Fast 50 meets. This is the fastest ride in town, speeds are hard to predict. but expect to see an average of 24 MPH, with the occasional surge of over 30MPH.
