REGIONS
ROCKY MOUNTAIN
The 2010 race season is in the books. Looking back on 2010 and ahead to 2011, the quality and quantity of events and multisport opportunities in the Rocky Mountain Region has never been better. One of the primary goals of the council this year was to develop a deeper connection among the council, race directors, coaches, teams and, most importantly, you, the athlete.


At several races, the council set up a Rocky Mountain Region tent. It was staffed by council members and provided assistance by answering questions, offering a meeting place for athletes and families and providing a rescue kit of race-day items (goggles, shoelaces, gels, sunscreen, etc.). We hope to be at several more races in 2011.


2010 saw an impressive increase in clubs and youth/junior teams. Thousands of dollars in grants were awarded to get these organizations up and running. Additional methods of staying connected are available through the Rocky Mountain Region Facebook page as well as our website www.usatrmr.com. USAT members, certified coaches, race directors and officials throughout the region are all encouraged to share info and photos.


For those of you who simply can’t get enough of multisport, the 2011 USAT Winter Triathlon National Championship will take place in Midway, Utah, on Jan. 15 at the Battle at Soldier Hollow (BASH): www.bashwintertri.com. The BASH Winter Race Festival is a day full of racing on the snow! From the headlining Winter Triathlon National Championship (run, mountain bike, cross country ski) to the 5k Snowshoe Fun Run & Kids’ 1/2 Mile Moon Boot Stomp (Fun Run), there is something for everyone. BASH is a perfect way to learn new sports, improve your base fitness, and expand your skills as a multisport athlete during the traditional triathlon offseason.


 


SOUTH MIDWEST
The South Midwest region starts its 2011 multisport season in the spirit of camaraderie by hosting the annual South Midwest Region Conference, Expo and Awards Banquet on Saturday, Jan. 22. In conjunction, we will host the 2011 Frost yer Fanny Duathlon on Jan. 23. All events take place in Katy, Texas, near Houston. The event starts with the semi-annual regional council’s face-to-face meeting in the morning followed by committee meetings with the region club presidents, race directors and the annual membership meeting where you can interact with the region’s council members by commenting or asking questions. In addition, we will host the USAT Officials Clinic the same day.


In the evening is the SMW Regional Banquet and Awards ceremony, recognizing the 2010 age-group winners at the state and regional levels. This ceremony is all-inclusive — from youth to masters and all disciplines of multisport. The event is a social gathering and a true celebration of the multisport lifestyle in the South Midwest Region.


On Jan. 23, we continue the celebration by competing in the annual Frost yer Fanny Duathlon to start the 2011 season with fun and fitness. This 3-mile run, 15-mile bike, 2-mile run race is an awesome duathlon event in the greater Houston area. Frost yer Fanny takes place at Bear Creek Pioneers Park, a very accommodating course that is truly spectator friendly.


We are looking forward to a great year in 2011 so come join us to get it started right!
