The 8th Annual Buffalo Triathlon Club "Spring Thing" will be held on Sunday, May 1st, 2016. The event will be based out of Shelter 4B at Beaver Island State Park, Grand Island, NY 14072.
This event is free to all BTC members but you must be pre-registered before midnight on Friday April 29th, 2016. The number of participants is limited to 60, and the slots will be filled first-come, first-served. You must be a member of the BTC in order to participate in this event. If you are not a member, but would like to participate in this event, you are welcome to become of a member of our club (only $25 for the year, for an adult individual). The link to register for the Spring Thing is near the bottom of this web page.
We will be staggering the long course and intermediate course starting times so that our members will all finish around the same time.
Please note that this is NOT a closed course, so all traffic laws must be followed and caution is warranted the entire day.
According to the web site for Beaver Island Park, there will not be a charge to enter the park on May 1st.
We will probably hand out paper race number bibs (just like you are used to from running races and triathlons) for purposes of timing everyone, so please bring your own elastic race belts if you'd rather not use safety pins (which we will provide).
We are in need of some volunteers to help with this event If you are interested in volunteering, or have any question regarding the event, please contact Lisa Trapasso and Heather McIntyre via email at:
