This weekend is the big Philly Triathlon. I don’t race this one. Instead I wear multiple other hats including race staff and TNT coach. This is a national Team in Training event so the race raises significant dollars for the fight against blood cancers. Independent of TNT, the race itself also makes a generous donation to Children’s Hospital and a few other local beneficiaries. So this event has a good heart.
The event(s) themselves are top shelf to say the least. I have been involved with this since inception and the founders and directors are good friends. I consider this race one of my “give back” events and would rather work it than race it. There is a shorter event or sprint distance race on Saturday and the bigger (and longer) race is Sunday.
The central venue is located on MLK Drive at the base of Black Road not too far from the Art Museum. I will be there all weekend and it is a very exciting thing to watch. Check out complete details at www.phillytri.com and if you aren’t doing anything come down and hang out !
