Hey Guys! Todd here!
For those of you participating in Ironman Augusta 70.3, and want a chance to preview the bike course or just want to come out and ride the Augusta 70.3 course, here’s the chance!
Race for a Reason is a supported preview of the course and the proceeds are going to towards the youth triathlon club in Augusta. [That’s right! All the kiddos you’ve been seeing in the SBK blog!]
This is a great opportunity to come out and ride the course as a preview if you’re training for the Augusta 70.3.
Plus, who knows who you will see!?? The kids from the SBK blog, Todd, Meredith, Sweet Red? (Ok, well probably everybody except Sweet Red. We can’t get the Preggo One on a bike…)
Many SBM army members already going so you definitely won’t be alone!
TriAugusta proudly presents the first annual Ride for a Reason (known in the past as the Bike for the Ballet) on August 10th, 2014. This is the only supported ride on the Ironman 70.3 Augusta course prior to the September competition. Cyclists from throughout the Southeast prepare for the race and raise awareness of youth triathlon through Dream Team Triathlon.
