  • Training Weekend (May)

  • USAT Expo
    The 2nd Annual New England Multisport Expo will be held on Saturday, March 6th from 12:00pm - 5:00pm at Regis College in Weston, MA.  Over 1000 multisport athletes will be there, eager to plan, prepare, and tool up for the 2004 season.  Boston Triathlon Team will have a table at the expo, so we are looking for more teammates to volunteer their time to "man" the table during the day.  This simply will entail wearing some team gear, answering some questions and handing out some sponsor goodies!  Please contact Maggie O'Toole for more details.

    Winter Training
    Even if the weather doesn't cooperate with you for training during the winter months, there is hope!  Flo Chretien and Jay Marschall are coordinating workouts across the board to help you with your swimming, indoor biking, running, xc skiing, yoga and strength training.  Make sure to contact them for workouts in your area.

    More Volunteers Needed
    A huge thank you goes out to all the BTT volunteers that made the Hyannis water stop another great success!  With that in mind, we are looking for about 12 to 15 people to help out at the finish line of the Ras Na hEireann, a 3.4 mile run in Davis Square, Somerville.  As with Hyannis, you can help out if you are not running, if you are unfortunately temporarily injured, or have your spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend, mom/dad, neighbor, friend, friend of BTT, etc. available! (you get the idea).  This was a great event last year and we hope to make it even better this year with your participation.  Please contact Evan Israelson for more details.

    Training Weekend
    The tradition continues!  The Boston Triathlon Team Training Weekend 2004 is scheduled for May 13 - 16.  This annual event is the gala opening of the summer triathlon season.  We are again venturing to Waterville Valley Ski Resort in Central New Hampshire for three days of training, relaxing and socializing.  Come and get to know your fellow teammates, crank out the bike miles on the beautiful, quiet hills of New Hampshire and share training tips with your fellow teammates all in the comfort of our resort condos!  Be sure to contact Josh Eckel for more information and to make your reservations.  Checks are due to Josh no later than April 9, 2004.

    Race Reports
    We've had so many race reports written in 2003 and are looking for more!  The feedback that we receive from members reading these reports are fabulous, so if you do a race, or are even just watching a race and want to let us know about it, please take the time to do a small (or lengthy) write-up to be posted for all to see.
