Who can believe it????  It is that time of the year again, here comes Tri Indy!!  The downtown showpiece of the Indiana Triathlon season is almost here.  Tri Indy is an Olympic/Sprint Triathlon/Duathlon race where athletes get to swim in the downtown Indianapolis canal, bike on a challenging, turning, tight course and run on a hot, hard, testing run course.  Please check out http://www.tuxbro.com/entry-info/TRIINDY/TriIndy-Home.php for race details.  The race brings out all the regional talent and it is the perfect opportunity to test your fitness against some GREAT competition.  This race is the perfect race for beginners, since the swim is in open water but it is not a lake…you can stand the whole way and you are never more than about 30 feet from the edge.  The Tri Tornadoes will be there in full force, with a number of team members participating in the event.  New this year will also be a Kids Triathlon, put on by Kids Tri for Kids, that starts around 11:30 AM, after the adult race finishes.  Please check out http://kidstriforkids.com/events/august-5th-2012-youth-triatholon-downtown-canal/ for details on the kids race.
