HFP Racing February News

Donkey-carott-with-sign2The American Triple-T on May 20-22 is now offering a shorter option, perfect for those wanting to step up to the 70.3 later in the year. The American Triple-T featured the wildly popular Xtreme Tri distance which features more than 140 miles of triathlons over 4 events in just 3 days. There are just 75 spots left of this distance.

The new Sprint Tri distance will offer just 75 spots and will start off with a Super Sprint Triathlon (250m swim – 6k bike – 1mi run) on Friday, then on Saturday morning participants take on the Sprint AM Triathlon featuring a 750m swim, followed by a challenging 16 mile bike and finishing with a 5k run. After a few hours of rest participants will be challenged by the Sprint PM Triathlon that starts off with a 17.5 mile bike, followed by a 750m swim and finishing with another 5k run. The weekend culminates with arguably the toughest suto olympic distance triathlon in the U.S. The race starts off with a .96k swim, followed by a super challenging 25 mile bike and finishing with a daunting 6.55mi run. Participants will have completed more than 70 miles over this long weekend.


Don’t miss this great opportunity to race in one of the most unique events in triathlon. Register before February 28th at Midnight to avoid a $25.00 price increase for both distances.

If you were thinking about joining us in Helen, GA for our annual training camp…The Helen Training Camp on April 4-10 is SOLD OUT. This annual camp in the northern mountain region of Helen, Georgia limits participation to just 21 lucky participants. Campers have come from 6 states and with a helen_mountain_top_imageambitious week of training planned all should leave thoroughly tested. This camp is a great excuse to get a solid week of uninterrupted training in before the start of the season. Every year campers rave about the gorgeous terrain that presents itself in Northern Georgia each April. Follow all the motivating (and many times silly) camp highlights on HFP’s Facebook page all week.

The O’Bleness Race for a Reason annually raises nearly $100,000 for local charities. We hope to see many of you at this early season favorite.
