Race Calendar 2012

Well next year is an Olympic year, but since (for some obscure reason) the British Olympic Committee seem to have favored Alistair Brownlee over me, I had to decide on some slighlty more local events!


I will write up my feelings about the 2011 season and my broader objectives for 2012 soon, but in the mean time, here's my provisional race calendar.   Things look a little different this year as I have had a rush of the blood to the head and decided that I would like to run a full 26.2 mile marathon next fall.   This means that I will focus on shorter (sprint and Olympic distance) triathlons earlier in the season before switching to a run focus later in the year.

March 18th.            Tobacco Road Half Marathon

April 7th.                Cary Duathlon (short course)

May 6th.                White Lake Sprint Triathlon (revenge for last year's debacle!)

June.                      Continue to look for a sprint tri.   
                              100 mile organised bike event.  Possibly Habitat for Humanity ride

July 14th.                Triangle Sprint Triathlon

August 4th.             Stumpy Point Olympic Triathlon

September 22nd.    Outer Banks Sprint Triathon

November 11th      Outer Banks Marathon

These races will, no doubt, be supplemented with various road races as dictated by The Puppeteer!

I'm looking forward to a great year and, with The Puppeteer's help, to continuing to improve my performances in 2012.  Target top 25% age group every event!
