King of Calgary Pursuit Triathlon

March 12th, 2009

Date: Sat March 28th

1500m long course swim sponsored by SpeedTheory…Break for 90min-2hours, taking time to arrive at bike TT course TBD.  Time discrepancy from leader after the swim applies to individual bike start times (i.e. swim leader starts the bike TT in first place with appropriate time advantage).  After bike, there will be another break,…transport to run location TBD.   10km run start is pursuit style as well (ie. time advantage/disadvantage after swim/bike will determine individual run start times).

First place wins a comped pro-entry into the Calgary 70.3 IM race.  If weather is nasty, bike will be held at SpeedTheory on Computrainers.

So far, the list of confirmed competitors are Christopher Brown (3rd place Ironman Canada 2007, 2008 National Long Distance Triathlon Champion), Kyle Marcotte (4th place Ironman Canada 2006, many Podium Ironman finishes too great to list, National Champion in Duathlon), Elliot Rushton (12th place World Championships Open Water Swimming 2005, PB of 15min14sec for 1500m freestyle, will be racing Calgary 70.3IM), Graham Hood (2-time Olympian, and Track and Field legend with a one mile PB of 3min51sec, and 1999 Pan American Games Gold Medalist in the 1500m), Trev Williams (1st age-grouper overall at 2005 Ironman Canada), and myself.
