>Go For Launch

>The Julington Creek Plantation Tri Club held its inaugural group run and meeting on Saturday morning.  It was an unqualified success.

We had planned a 40 minute group run (20 out & 20 back, “no man left behind”) followed by an organizational meeting complete with brunch.  First Endurance, Kestrel and Tri-Swim were good enough to provide some goodies and samples to give out as well.  Our expectations were completely blown away when more than 40 people showed up on a brisk morning!

The run went great, the door prizes were a huge hit, and the club got started off smoothly.  Interestingly, the vast majority (probably 90%) of the folks at the meeting were “newbies” – and had either just started triathlon or had never done one before.  Additionally, there were some super experienced triathletes – from multiple Ironman athletes, to two athletes who had qualified for and raced Kona at least once.

Enthusiasm was high.  We’ll be working on a slate of activities for the club, including group training, technical seminars, and social events.  Stealing a phrase from NASA, Jacksonville’s newest triathlon club is “Go For Launch!”

See below for some photos taken during the event:



Some of the goodies:  First Endurance provided Liquid Shots, visors, water bottles.  Kestrel provided race belts
