Challenge Knoxville takes place in the site of the 1985 World’s Fair Park. There is plenty to do and see in Knoxville, Tennessee making it the perfect venue for the whole family. Knoxville is only a short drive from several metropolitan areas such as Atlanta, or Nashville and is also a short drive to the Great Smokey Mountains if you would like to extend your stay after your race. Triathletes will assemble at Volunteer Landing adjacent to Knoxville’s renowned Calhoun’s on the River. Each swim wave will enter the water via the deck at Calhoun’s Restaurant and tread water until the gun sounds. Triathletes will swim up river make the turn and swim back down river exiting at the UT Rowhouse across the street from Neyland Stadium. Join us on a bike ride which begins adjacent to Neyland Stadium. Athletes will make their way out of Knoxville as they journey out onto the rural country roads of Blount and Knox Counties. Enjoy challenging ascents, rapid descents and picturesque scenery before making your way back in to town. Athletes will exit the transition area heading out onto Neyland Drive passing the Stadium. The run course will weave its way through the Knoxville Greenway Trail System. Athletes will enjoy a challenging yet scenic course at Challenge Knoxville culminating with an energized finish at World’s Fair Park in downtown Knoxville.

Allen, Slack win XTERRA Saipan Champs

Allen, Slack win XTERRA Saipan Champs

Tuesday 31 Mar 2015 [Triathlon News]

Ben Allen from Australia and Jacqui Slack of Great Britain won the 14th annual XTERRA Saipan Championship race in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands on Saturday. It’s the fourth year in a row Allen won the title, matching Olivier Marceau’s streak from 2004-07. For Slack, it’s her second Saipan victory in three years. Both led from wire-to-wire in wet conditions that made the already difficult jungle bike and run courses all the more treacherous. more

Annabel Luxford, Ironman-Its Such a Long Way

Tuesday 31 Mar 2015 [Triathlon News]

On possibly one of the best autumnal days, Melbourne could offer, I embarked on the biggest challenge of my fifteen years as a professional triathlete – Ironman Melbourne. As the Asia Pacific Championship event, the field was star studded with Ironman World Champions, Half Ironman World Champions, Olympic medalists and athletes seasoned over this distance. No one ever talks about Frankston as a place filled with talent, but as the sun rose, and the start horn sounded from the pier, the crystal w more

Monday 30 Mar 2015 [Triathlon News]

Rom Akerson and Lesley Paterson captured the XTERRA Costa Rica Championship crowns on a hot day at Playa Conchal on Sunday. In the men’s race Akerson, the hometown favorite, had the fastest bike split of the day and held off a hard-charging Josiah Middaugh on the run to take the tape in 2:19:04. more

Swallow and Van Lierde Capture African Championship

Monday 30 Mar 2015 [Triathlon News]

Frederik Van Lierde and Jodie Swallow dominated the Standard Bank IRONMAN African Championship. After leading the swim, an uncharacteristically circumspect display on the bike and measured run saw Britain's Jodie Swallow, achieve an emotional victory at the Standard Bank IRONMAN African Championship. Earlier, Belgium’s Frederik Van Lierde put in a display which underlined his championship credentials as he slipped through the gears to get stronger as his race wore on, taking the title of IRONMAN more

Brownlee brilliance delivers Auckland win

Sunday 29 Mar 2015 [Triathlon News]

Great Britian’s Jonathan Brownlee was determined to not take another ITU World Triathlon Auckland silver medal on Sunday as he produced a breakout run to earn him his first WTS title of the season. His four-lap run went uncontested as he out-ran the reigning WTS Auckland champion Javier Gomez Noya (ESP) who took the second-podium spot. For Frenchman Pierre Le Corre it was a career best result for bronze and just reward for a great race. more

XTERRA Weekend Wrap-Up: Saipan, Costa Rica & Malta

Tuesday 31 Mar 2015 Triathlete.com
Lesley Paterson won the women's race in Costa Rica.A run-down of the weekend in off-road triathlon, following races in Saipan, Costa Rica and Malta. Ben Allen, Jacqui Slack Win XTERRA Saipan On Saturday, Australia’s Ben Allen and Great Britain’s Jacqui Slack won the 14th running of the XTERRA Saipan Championship race in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. It was the fourth year in a row for Allen, and it was Slack’s second Saipan title in the last three years. The course, which takes athletes through difficult bike and run courses through the jungle, was made even more challenging thanks to wet, rainy conditions. However, both athletes led wire-to-wire. “Some of the worst conditions I’ve ever raced in,” Allen said after the race. “The rain didn’t let up, and it made for super slippery conditions.” Allen, one of the sport’s best swimmers, built a one-minute gap over runner-up Bradley Weiss starting from the swim, and paired that with the fastest bike and run splits of the...

The Crank

Monday 30 Mar 2015 Liam Bromilow
Screen Shot 2015-03-30 at 10.59.33 am With two Ironman regional championships in two weeks, some shots have been fired early. Kona is a long way to go, but for Jeffrey Symonds, Mel Hauschildt, Frederik van Lierde, and Jodie Swallow, they are lucky enough to set their focus a lot earlier than most. And it is a good thing with some reward for effort in winning a regional title. How good was van Lierde in South Africa on the weekend? His 4:32 bike split was 12 minutes faster than his nearest rival! #Smokin’ Speaking of the men’s race, we can’t wait until Ivan Rana cracks the Ironman code. (Yes we know he’s already a two-time winner). A race best 2:48 marathon got us excited. Kudos to Jodie Swallow who prior to yesterday’s race in South Africa said she was dedicating her race to Linda Scattolin who was tragically killed in a road accident. To then go out and win is classy. Jan Frodeno ran a 1:10 half marathon on his way to winning Oceanside. Frodo is back to where he has spent most of his 4 hour career. In front. The...

2015 IM 70.3 Oceanside

Monday 30 Mar 2015 Melanie@racergirl.com (melanie)
IMG 2357 I am so impressed with how fast the ladies field was this year and how deep the talent ran.  Wow to both Heather Jackson and Heather Wurtele for continuing to hold this race by the throat by trading off wins, this was HJ’s year.  Welcome to super-fast Holly Lawrence who came in under the radar and almost rode away with the race and held off fourth place Alicia Kaye.  The Canadians definitely came out guns blazing with Angela Duncan in fifth and solid Rachel McBride in 6th.  Magali would have been in the mix without a mechanical.  Go Canada!  Speaking of Canada, how about 3rd, 4th, 6th and 7th in the men’s with Lionel, Brent, Taylor and Trevor kicking ass in top 10.  Never has the Canadian long course talent been deeper. Add to that my friend Marilyn Arsenault's win in the master's division at the Carlsbad 5000 - yay Mar!  Good times. Most of team Canada... missing the Wurteles, Angela Naeth and Alicia Kaye and including coaches Cliff English and...

Pursue Your Potential - Should You Go Pro?

Monday 23 Mar 2015 Melanie@racergirl.com (melanie)
Training with younger athletes reminds me of my own struggle to find my way in sport early in my career (back when dinosaurs roamed the earth).  I remember balancing a zero budget, university studies, international travel and worried parents with my intense desire to progress in the sport.  Looking back, I never expected my career to follow the path it has. I love being around young athletes and I am constantly encouraging them to have the courage to follow their dreams, no matter how intimidating that seems.    The few athletes that make it to the top rise out of the ranks of beginners just as everyone else.  There are a handful of athletes with outstanding success in the sport and many more with moderate to limited success.  Challenging yourself to pursue the highest level in triathlon requires a considerable conviction, determination and resilience.  It also requires sacrifice including financial hardship, postponing education, postponing other...

Thoughts on Oceanside

Tuesday 31 Mar 2015 Lsanderstri
On Saturday I raced Oceanside 70.3 in California. Wow! What an experience. It was my first time ever going to California. Man was it ever beautiful. It was also my first time ever going to a race by myself. I was a bit nervous about the logistics of renting a car, navigating from San Diego to Oceanside, booking a hotel, etc. but it all went smoothly. I was also fortunate in that my coach Barrie Shepley drove all the way from Tucson to support both myself and my C3-High Performance team-mate Taylor Reid. It’s amazing what a year’s worth of experience can do. Last year going into St. George 70.3 I was a nervous wreck. I was very intimidated by the competition and didn’t really feel like I belonged there. As a result, I finished 18th nearly 10 minutes behind the winner Jan Frodeno. This time round I felt a lot more confident. I felt like I belonged there. I felt like I was part of the game. I had a smooth morning and transition set up. I created an itemized list containing all of the...

I was back in 11th.  Race reports when you aren’t fast are difficult to make interesting.  There are only attempted excuses or explanations for why you weren’t keeping up.  These facts aren’t...

My new ride

Monday 30 Mar 2015 Gina Crawford (noreply@blogger.com)
My 2015 Ceepo Katana has arrived! I have been riding Ceepo nearly my entire career, they were my first sponsor and I partnered with them after my first Ironman Victory at the end of 2007, so I have had 12 iron distance victories on their bikes. I have been riding the Katana since 2010. Every year Ceepo makes subtle changes, and the bike just keeps on improving, slightly lighter, slightly more aero. I love working with Ceepo as they are such a great team of people, that are just so passionate about their bikes. This year I have been particularly lucky. My former components sponsor SRAM did not wish to resign me at the end of last year, so Ceepo very kindly stepped in and helped me out with Shimano Di2 components. Quite a few people had been telling me just how good Di2 was, but I was slightly hesitant, as to be frank I am very much a laggard when it comes to technology, the simpler the better is typically my motto. But having ridden my new Ceepo now for only a number of days, I can say...
