Tritonman 2013: in the books. On the guys’ side, Arizona’s Ben Kanute pulled off an impressive double, winning both Saturday’s draft-legal race and Sunday’s Classic. For the ladies, we had Hannah Rae Finchamp (a high schooler! Keep an eye on that one) take home the DL title, and Brittany Braden of SDSU kept Sunday’s title local. You can check out full results and the thousands of photos we got on the weekend using the links below.
In lieu of a full write up, we’re going to be trendy and go with a Harlem Shake video made at the Tritonman Classic instead. Enjoy!
We’re very interested in getting your feedback on our race. If you’ve got a sec, would you mind heading over to this link right here, and filling out our survey? We want to make sure we’re making our race the best experience possible for everyone who comes!
Tritonman: certified sustainable!
As athletes who spend several hours a day training outside, the members of the UCSD Triathlon Team are very concerned with the health of the environment. We all do simple things to keep our environmental impact down: we carpool to races and team events; we commute on our bikes whenever possible; we recycle old inner tubes and Clif bar wrappers. But what about our races? While triathlons may not seem like very environmentally-damaging events, they are actually a source of many forms of waste and pollution. What happens to all those bike and bib numbers after the race? They go in the trash. What about all the leftover food? The trash. What about all the paper used for pre-race advertising and promotions? It eventually goes in the trash (or, hopefully, the recycling). Since the environment is an essential component of the sport we love, the tri team has made it a goal to put on races that are as sustainable as possible. Through the Council for Responsible Sport, Tritonman 2013 has been certified as a sustainable race. This is a long and involved process, requiring implementation and documentation of numerous green practices. The UCSD Triathlon Team is very proud to have achieved this distinguished certification, and we hope to continue to maintain and improve the sustainability of our team and our races in the years to come.
