PACIFIC NORTHWEST
The Pacific Northwest has had some mild winter weather allowing many of us to get on the bike outside sooner than expected! Thanks to all who raced. Our Regional Championships start in Enumclaw, Washington, in April. This is a beautiful course set near Mt. Rainer and has a lot to offer the beginner and experienced duathlete. Other Regional Championships are:

TriMonroe will host the Youth Elite Cup and CAMTRI Junior American Cup again this summer on June 20. We have a youth camp in the works for that venue as well. Youth races are held throughout the Region and can be found on the calendar at www.usatriathlon.org/eventcalendar. Oregon and Montana will host two of the 50 USA Triathlon Splash & Dash races for youth in 2015. PNW has the highest percentage of women racing of all 10 Regions in the U. S. Lots of great women’s races in our Region and women mentoring happening. We’d like to thank our volunteers and race directors in advance this year for giving us the opportunity to participate in multi-sport. Lots of hard work has been happening in the “off” season so we can have another great race year.


 


 


MID-ATLANTIC

Junior triathletes in the Mid-Atlantic Region have two great opportunities to learn, connect and compete alongside their peers this season.


The Region’s only USA Triathlon designated Junior Elite Skills Camp returns to McDaniel College in Westminster, Maryland, July 14-16. Designed for the novice to intermediate level 12-to-16-year-old triathlete and taught exclusively by USA Triathlon Certified Coaches, Skills Camp focuses on swimming, biking, running and transition within the context of elite draft-legal rules and strategy. To learn more, visit bit.ly/USATSkillsCamp.


Providing a gateway into the sport of triathlon and a starting point for talent identification, the Junior Talent ID Series fosters development of triathletes ages 15-19. Races within the Series have been selected for their junior-friendly, sprint-distance, non-drafting format and summertime race date and serve as an entry point for many young athletes into the talent identification pipeline. Visit bit.ly/USATTalentID.


Paratriathlon
The Region’s Paratriathlon Committee will partner with Sportable to host its third annual paratriathlon clinic on May 2 in Richmond, Virginia. Featuring instruction in wheelchair racing, handcycling, swimming and amputee running and cycling, the clinic will offer new paratriathletes a chance to try all of the disciplines and seasoned athletes an opportunity to hone their skills for the 2015 season. Racing wheelchairs and handcycles will be available for use during the clinic. Visit www.sportable.org.


The clinic will serve as a lead-in to the Mid-Atlantic Regional Paratriathlon Championship, to be held at the nearby Naylor’s Beach Triathlon on June 7. The first four Mid-Atlantic athletes to register will have their registration fee fully reimbursed following the event. In addition, Mid-Atlantic athletes can apply for regional mini-grants to help cover the expenses of attending either the clinic or the regional championship as funds allow. More information on these funding opportunities can be found at www.usatriathlon.org/mid-atlantic.
