Volunteer Rider and Motorcycle needed CT Aug 5th

Hello,

The Hartford Marathon Foundation is looking for two people to ride escort for a Triathlon on Aug 5th in Niantic, Ct. I was asked to do it and will be there on my GS. Our job is to ride with a race official or photographer around the course on Sunday. They need at least one more bike. Our day would start at 7am and would be done sometime around 10 or 11 am. Event details below. Please PM if you can help out. Thanks.

Sunday - August 5, 2012


McCook Beach Park, Niantic, CT



Start Time:


7:30 AM

This event is a flat, sprint distance race.

Swim: 1/2 mile point-to-point course in Niantic Bay, an ocean bay with no waves or strong currents. Swim waves do not exceed 100 people and we offer a special wave for first timers.

Bike: 12-mile loop through scenic East Lyme with water views and shaded streets. Long straightaways along flat, sea level roads make this course popular with both experienced riders and beginners.

Run: 3.5-mile distance takes place completely along the oceanfront area lined with cheering spectators. A spectacular beach finish caps off a perfect race. A heartfelt thank you to the volunteers and sponsors who brave the early morning hours to support the athletes.

Also they need help in September at an all women's triathlon in Farmington, CT. Details below:

Sunday - September 9, 2012


Winding Trails, Farmington CT



Start Time:


7:30 AM

The Women’s Triathlon is a sprint distance tri, conducted in a friendly non-intimidating environment, and caters to women of all abilities and ages. Participants will swim 1/2 mile in Dunning Lake at Winding Trails, then cycle 12 miles through the quiet roads of Farmington and Avon and finish with a flat 5K run on the shaded, wide dirt trails in Winding Trails.

If you’ve never participated in a triathlon, this Women’s Triathlon is for you. Come along and experience a supportive and friendly environment for beginners and competition for the experienced triathletes.
