Ironman CDA 2013
As most of you know Ironman CDA is a National Holliday at Fitness Fanatics. This year’s event is June 23d. We will be closed for this Holliday. It is 28 days away. I have posted the Ironman Check list on the web site under links and info. We are very excited this year to see how the new swim start will go. Ironman is calling it the smart swim.
Athletes will enter the water in a continuous stream through a controlled access point; similar to how running road races are started. An athlete’s times will start when they cross timing mats under the swim arch.
Athletes will be directed to self-seed on race morning based on their projected swim time. Volunteers and staff will be in the staging area with signs and will assist with this process. Self-seeding will not be mandatory but will be encouraged. All athletes will have access to a dedicated warm-up area in the water located adjacent to the swim start.
Age Group athletes will begin entering the water at 6:35 a.m.
If you are doing Ironman CDA, you should make sure you have scheduled your Ironman tune up. We do take reservations and try to make sure you are not without your bike for more than two days.
If you are not signed up for Ironman, it is a great event to volunteer at, or just go watch. We will be out there all day cheering on all our local Athletes. We have one employee Kari, who is doing the race, so make sure to give her a big cheer!!
