More challenging in Shepparton

Thursday 18 Sep 2014 Tim
Challenge Australia Ironman - Melbourne Several months ago I was approached from the Challenge Family to see if I’d like to race the now named Challenge Shepparton. With the revamped and much improved course how could I not say “yes.” Earlier this year I took the win at Challenge Melbourne against a very fast field and it would be great to take out the double this year in Shepparton. I’m really excited to come back to Shepparton to race again. See you there!

You Got the Power

There are 86400 seconds in a day, just over 31.42 million seconds since I finished Kona last year.  I have spent them focused on 1 goal: TURNING UP THE POWER Click here to view the embedded video.

Micha freut sich aufs Rügen-Debüt

Thursday 11 Sep 2014 Julia Böttner
Binz 2014Am Sonntag steht die Premiere des Strandräuber Ironman 70.3 in Binz auf dem Programm – Rostocker möchte nach Platz drei am Walchsee gutes Heimspiel zeigen  Rostock. Mit großer Vorfreude startet Michael Raelert an diesem Wochenende in die Erstauflage des Strandräuber Ironman 70.3 Rügen. 1300 Athleten aus 34 Nationen gehen am Sonntag bei der Premiere des Wettkampfes über 1,9 Kilometer Schwimmen, 90 Kilometer Radfahren und 21,1 Kilometer Laufen ins Rennen. „Ich bin sehr gespannt darauf, was uns alle erwartet“, sagt Michael Raelert vor dem Startschuss im Ostseebad Binz. „Für mich als Rostocker ist es ja eine Art Heimspiel. Von daher freue ich mich ganz besonders auf den Sonntag.“Zwei Wochen nach seinem dritten Platz bei der Challenge Walchsee-Kaiserwinkl möchte Michael Raelert das gute Debüt in Österreich mit einem gelungenen Rennen auf der Ostseeinsel bestätigen. „Am Walchsee hatte ich gleich zu meinem Einstand nach meiner langen Wettkampfpause einen richtig harten Vergleich“,...

Ironman Wales 2014

Wednesday 17 Sep 2014 Fraser
DGT_IMWALES_2014_0850 On my 2nd attempt at finishing Ironman Wales I crossed the line in… 2nd place. – After more than 9hours of racing on a course best described as ‘brutal’ I think this shot best reminds me of the considerable amount of relief to have just gotten it done! The weather is always a factor when racing in the UK and this weekend the gods couldn’t have been much kinder. – Save however for the easterly wind which coupled with an incoming tide created a formidible looking sea on race morning. Below on the left I appear to be figuring out exactly where the first swim bouy is… I really feel for all of the athletes who worry about getting through the swim leg of an Ironman – it’s a long old way in calm waters, but I’m afraid on Sunday morning it was anything but calm or indeed ‘flat’ and I for one didn’t enjoy it very much at all. Indeed I was sure (probably for the first time during my years racing) that after we had...

Jaimie’s Blog – No Longer a Virgin of Full Distance Triathlon!

Tuesday 16 Sep 2014 Jaimie Jacobs
<photo.JPG> Jaimie’s Blog: No Longer a Virgin of Full Distance Triathlon!  Well to say Challenge Roth was uneventful would be an absolute lie. Apparently it was one of the toughest years in its 30 year history with the wind and the heat at its cruelest with the highest amount of athletes in the medical tent (20% of starters did not finish). Yet strangely the wind and the heat I did not notice until I heard people talking about it – I was doing my first ‘full distance triathlon’, living the dream. My dream. You know its going to be a memorable day when it starts with Cindy Lauper blaring through the speakers “Girls just want to have fun” – this is awesome at any time and or place of the day let alone in Germany whilst treading water on the start line of Challenge Roth! What is Challenge Roth? Picture Tour De France moments where one is enveloped in a kilometre of avid supporters 10 people deep whilst pedaling up what is called Solar Hill. Cyclists must ride single file. The ride course...

State of Long Distance Tri, PART II

Tuesday 16 Sep 2014 Andrew Starykowicz
WW_Perc This will be a 3 Part blog: Part 1 will consist of Up to speed, Challenge is coming, Prize Purses, Battle of the Sexes Part 2 will consist of Where & When, Sponsors, Race Coverage, World Champs Part 3 will Starky Says Where & When? Let’s pick apart why only 91% of the time are there enough women to fill out the prize purse and less than 2/3’s of the time are there 10 women even finishing WTC long course races. On the men’s side it is a lot better with only 1 field not paying out and 92% of the fields had 10+ male finishers. First let’s start off with which regions are these races and how many people are finishing, or where the marketplace of the professionals is. America’s is defined as North and South America excluding the United States. It is very apparent that the market in the Pacific Rim (Oceana & Asia) is just not there for WTC when it comes to professionals…and age groupers considering the races are not sold out. The men’s fields worldwide are full and deep...

Running and building blocks the hard way with Robbo

Nation's Tri as the RWB newbie coach

Tuesday 16 Sep 2014 Jocelyn Wong (noreply@blogger.com)
I ran a half marathon yesterday morning, but they haven't posted any race photos yet, and what's a race report without action shots, right?? I also need to blog about my second year at the Nation's Triathlon. Apparently it is DC's only triathlon (according to www.trifind.com anyway). Last year, I was working full-time at Walter Reed and ended up on a wounded warrior relay team with Josh. Hmm, I

MSC Lakeside

Monday 15 Sep 2014 Lsanderstri
Lakeside Bike Data This past Saturday I raced the MSC Lakeside sprint triathlon. This is my fourth race in the MSC series this year. What was cool about this race was that the top three points leaders in the series were all present: Andrew Bolton, Cody Beals and myself. What made it even cooler was that any one of us were in contention to win the overall series. Before the race I calculated every possible scenario, and the point totals that would result. For instance: I get 3rd which is worth 80 points, and Cody gets 1st with the fastest swim, bike and run which is worth 130 points. I had 350 points going into the race, so that would give me 430 points. Cody had 320 points going into the race, so that would give him 450 and he would win the series. Long story short, I came to the conclusion that in order to secure a win for the overall series I would have to win the race and have the fastest run. This would give me 110 points and a series total of 460. I intended on getting to the race over an hour...

How to increase your Kona performance: Four Weeks Out

Monday 15 Sep 2014 Dirk
-1 With less than four weeks to the big dance in Kona, athletes are under pressure to hammer out perfect sessions that will help them shave time off of their overall time on race day. Right now it’s peak training time and it is a must to really focus on getting the big volume under your belt. I always feel that the last few weeks leading up to an Ironman have to be very precise and those key session need to be nailed, not only for your body, but also for the your mind. My advice for you right now is to free yourself from other things and really focus on the next few weeks. You are undoubtedly tired and fatigued from training, so the time you commit to your goal is crucial and you need to focus even more on not to making any unnecessary mistakes. The less you have going on right now the better. Now is the time to prioritize training. Between those hard sessions it is absolutely necessary to give your body the rest that it needs in order to bounce back and be fresh.  So when it’s on...

Ironman 70.3 Sunshine Coast

Monday 15 Sep 2014 Gina Crawford (noreply@blogger.com)
After Bintan I traveled straight to Australia to train in one of my most favourite parts of the world, Peregian Beach near Noosa, Australia. I just love it here. I always feel so happy, and have my best ever training. I love the consistently great weather, the beach, the 50m swimming pool in the sun, the lack of earthquakes, the list goes on. I am very sad to leave, although we are going next to Hawaii so I should get over it. I recovered really well from racing in Bintan and got straight back into some good, hard, long training, which has been perfect here. I went into the race a bit tired. The goal was a good hard training session without damaging myself and digging myself into a hole. It may sound strange that in order to achieve that you have to go into a race tired, but if I would rest a couple of days for the race, I would have fresh legs and would go too fast on the run, and would likely hurt myself on the back of an iron distance race 3 weeks ago, and it would most likely...

Micha gewinnt Ironman 70.3 Rügen

Sunday 14 Sep 2014 Julia Böttner
Binz 2014Erster Sieg im zweiten Wettkampf nach langer Rennpause – Widrige Bedingungen sorgen für Absage des Schwimmens – Starke Leistung auf dem Rad  Rügen. In seinem zweiten Rennen nach einer langen Wettkampfpause hat Michael Raelert den ersten Sieg gefeiert. Bei schwierigen äußeren Bedingungen gewann der Rostocker die Premiere des Strandräuber Ironman 70.3 Rügen. In 3:53:10 Stunden setzte er sich deutlich vor dem Deutschen Matthias Knossolla (3:56:26) und Edo van der Meer aus den Niederlanden durch, der 3:57:31 benötigte. „Es war ein sehr anspruchsvolles Rennen für alle Starter“, erklärte der 34-Jährige nach einem von extrem böigem Wind, niedrigen Temperaturen und anfangs starkem Regen gekennzeichneten Wettkampf, „heute hat jeder Einzelne gespürt, wie heftig die Bedingungen waren.“Bereits am Vortag hatten die Veranstalter überlegt, das Schwimmen aufgrund zu starker Winde abzusagen, am Rennmorgen wurde dies dann Gewissheit. Heftiger Wellengang prägte das Bild am Ostseeufer in Binz,...

WORLD 70.3 CHAMPIONSHIPS – Mont Tremblant, Canada

Saturday 13 Sep 2014 Admin
10626625_10152831723668787_7070225971592061299_n Mont Tremblant was the perfect venue for the World 70.3 Championships and it was witness to the most competitive race I have every been apart of.  Each year the field keeps getting deeper and faster and this was no exception. The challenging course didn’t even help to slow the competition down.  There were some fast splits posted, with swim times of 22 minutes, ride times of 2:04 and an amazing run by Gomez at 1:09, showing just how fast 70.3 racing has become.

10th 70.3 World Champs.

Friday 12 Sep 2014 Will
fighter jet Mont Tremblant 70.3 World Champs and the big goal of the year finished for another year. It didn’t all go smoothly, but I’m feeling proud of how I executed my race and how I over came the adversity to rescue a 10th place and the last prize money position. It was the best 70.3 I’ve been to so far, they kicked off the Pros with a Fighter Jet fly by followed by the horn blowing. Pretty inspiring!   I had a decent swim, as usual nothing particularly special! 50 secs behind the leaders. Needs work next year for sure. I have to say once I got on the bike my legs felt amazing, and we ended up riding up to the leaders by the 30km mark. I didn’t do anything to help, Joe Gambles and Terenzo powered us up there. I know my level and played the game, thinking I’ll save it for the run. Hats off to you boys for riding so strong!   By 75km we had established ourselves as a group of 10 and had a healthy lead on some very handy athletes then I hit a stone in the...

2014 Ironman 70.3 World Championship

Friday 12 Sep 2014 Melanie@racergirl.com (melanie)
2014-09-07 07.08.36 480x640 {jcomments on}The village of Mont Tremblant in Quebec hosted the 2014 edition of the Ironman 70.3 World Championship this past weekend, inviting almost 2200 athletes to test themselves on one of the most beautiful race courses in the world.  Any competitor would agree that a better venue or race organization would be hard to find.   From the course chosen all the way to the incredible post race awards show complete with Cirque du Soleil acrobats, the crew in Tremblant really set the bar high for whoever comes next to put on this race.  I really was proud of Canada doing just an awesome job being the first country other than the US to host an Ironman Worlds.  I was also impressed with all of the women in the pro field, particularly our top 3 finishers Daniela Ryf, Jodie Swallow and Canada’s Heather Wurtele.  Added to Heather’s success, Rachel McBride and Magali Tissyere also took 9th and 10th place to keep 3 Canadians in the top 10- the best Canadian...

Thursday 18 Sep 2014 [Triathlon News]

Legendary IRONMAN Jurgen Zack has travelled to Malaysia in pursuit of an age group slot so he can return to Kona. It’s been nine years since the legendary German star Jurgen Zack raced as a professional in an IRONMAN. These days Zack has dedicated his life to coaching in Phuket, Thailand and a little racing as an age group athlete. He also has been known to pick up the microphone and sing a song at the local open night in Phuket (but that's another story). more

Heleen bin de Vaate, Victory in my last race as a professional

In the beginning of this year I decided for myself that Challenge Almere would be my last race as a professional triathlete. I didn't want to pay too much attention to this, because for me it was more important to stay focused on the race then to pay attention to a farewell party. The result was the most important thing for me, because I would love to stop with a peak performance. But I never dreamt of a greater farewell race on the highest level in this sport. What a day and what a big party! I more

Ironman Lake Tahoe Threatened By Nearby Smoke

Thursday 18 Sep 2014 Triathlete.com
The 2013 Ironman Lake Tahoe race featured frigid conditions. Photo: Susan LackeThis Sunday’s Ironman Lake Tahoe and Ironman 70.3 Lake Tahoe face the possibility of cancellation due to smoky conditions being caused by the nearby King Fire. An Ironman spokesperson tells the Reno Gazette-Journal that as of now the race is on. “We are working with the local authorities and our medical team in monitoring the fires and smoke in the region. At this time we do not anticipate making any changes to the race,” Keats McGonical, Ironman Operations Manager, said in a statement to the RGJ on Thursday. “As with all of our races there are a number of contingency plans in place to handle a number of different situations. Our current plan is to go ahead with the event as scheduled.” According to several sources, the National Weather Service is predicting that the smoke will clear out in time for the race. This is the second running of Ironman Lake Tahoe, and the first time...

Josiah Middaugh will look to be crowned XTERRA USA champion. Photo: XTERRAPros will compete for the titles of XTERRA USA Champions and the overall series on Saturday in Ogden, Utah. Read the preview from XTERRA below: Men’s Preview There are a lot of contenders in the elite men’s field set for Saturday’s XTERRA USA Championship race—Josiah Middaugh, Ruben Ruzafa, Dan Hugo, Mauricio Mendez, Ben Allen, Bradley Weiss, Ryan Ignatz, Ryan Petry, Craig Evans, Brenden Rakita—but of that impressive collection, two names stand above the rest. Middaugh and Ruzafa will be the heavy favorites on Saturday. Last year at this race those two came off the bike together (along with Leo Chacon who eventually won), but Middaugh ran 30 seconds faster. The last three meetings, however, have all belonged to Ruzafa—from Maui where he won his second world title to this August at XTERRA Czech and XTERRA Germany, where Middaugh finished runner-up each time. In Germany, Middaugh ran two minutes faster but...

If It’s Thursday Race Week in Kona, It’s the Underpants Run!

Thursday 18 Sep 2014 Becca Jackson
The tradition continues into its 17th year and with it this year brings a run at breaking the Guinness World Record for the ‘Largest gathering of people wearing only underpants/knickers’! The current record is 2270 participants set in Salt Lake City, Utah. Due to this record attempt we will need everyone to register for the event and it will start and finish behind the Courtyard King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel, in the parking lot where the IRONMAN Banquets take place. It is still only a $20 donation to register and with that you get your choice of a hat or visor from Headsweats, t-shirt from Greenlayer, socks from Beaker Concepts or underpants from Wood Underwear. Please sign up early and let everyone you know who will be in Kona about the record attempt and to come out and help us put the Kona Underpants Run on the map and raise money for the local charities! Over the past 17 years the Underpants run has raised over $200,000 for local charities through donations...

Two Ways To Prevent Running Injuries

Thursday 18 Sep 2014 Mackenzie Lobby
Photo: Shutterstock.comTwo ways to vary your run training to prevent injury. Triathletes are all about variety. That’s why the results of a recent study regarding running injuries—or rather how to prevent them—are welcome news. Published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, researchers recruited 69 male and female runners to determine whether there was any relationship between step-by-step strike differences and running injuries. The participants were split into two groups—those who had sustained a running injury in the past year and those who had not. After putting participants on treadmills and assessing things like their “stride-to-stride variability of strike index,” contact time, flight time, stride time and stride length, the researchers made some complicated calculations to determine each runner’s “coefficient of variance.” Put simply, this showed how much each person’s foot strike varied from one step to the next. What they found was that those who had greater variability...

Dear Coach: Redemption Races And Negative Spliting

Thursday 18 Sep 2014 Ian Murray
Photo: Zdenek Krchak / Shutterstock.comCoach Ian Murray answers two reader questions. My “A” race went poorly. Do you have any basic guidelines for seeking out a “redemption race”? It’s critical to get back on the horse after any race goes poorly. But before doing so, you need to immediately assess where that previous event went wrong. Sometimes the root issue is tucked far away from where the problem appears to be. This requires a cause-and-effect analysis. The objective perspective of a professional coach can help in this process. Once the error has been identified, the “redemption race” can serve as the proof that you are in control of the issue and you can perform well. RELATED: How To Train Through A Race What is “negative splitting” and is it always a good idea in a race? The term refers to covering the second half of a race segment faster than the first. This approach diminishes your chances of charging out too hard and...

More challenging in Shepparton

Thursday 18 Sep 2014 Tim
Challenge Australia Ironman - Melbourne Several months ago I was approached from the Challenge Family to see if I’d like to race the now named Challenge Shepparton. With the revamped and much improved course how could I not say “yes.” Earlier this year I took the win at Challenge Melbourne against a very fast field and it would be great to take out the double this year in Shepparton. I’m really excited to come back to Shepparton to race again. See you there!

Ironman Wales 2014

Wednesday 17 Sep 2014 Fraser
DGT_IMWALES_2014_0850 On my 2nd attempt at finishing Ironman Wales I crossed the line in… 2nd place. – After more than 9hours of racing on a course best described as ‘brutal’ I think this shot best reminds me of the considerable amount of relief to have just gotten it done! The weather is always a factor when racing in the UK and this weekend the gods couldn’t have been much kinder. – Save however for the easterly wind which coupled with an incoming tide created a formidible looking sea on race morning. Below on the left I appear to be figuring out exactly where the first swim bouy is… I really feel for all of the athletes who worry about getting through the swim leg of an Ironman – it’s a long old way in calm waters, but I’m afraid on Sunday morning it was anything but calm or indeed ‘flat’ and I for one didn’t enjoy it very much at all. Indeed I was sure (probably for the first time during my years racing) that after we had...
