From the President

We had a great showing at the High Point Sprint Triathlon this year, with 25 racers and some great finishes! Great job and congrats to everyone who raced, and a big thanks to other team members who came out to volunteer and cheer on all of the competitors. Also, a big thank you to everyone who came out to volunteer for the Gibbs Hundred Growler Gallup! I heard a lot of runners after the event talking about how great and encouraging all of the volunteers out on the race course were, so way to represent the TTT! And finally, great job to everyone who raced the Try a Tri for Hospice this past weekend as well. It was great to see everyone supporting that race, and helping it to grow so much this year!

The end of the 2018 race season is coming up, as well as the end of the 2018 TTT Race Series! The North Carolina Triathlon Championships is coming up on September 16, just a couple of weeks away. We've still got one more weekend to come out with the TTT to ride and run the course for some valuable pre-race experience.

While the NC Triathlon Championships will be the last official race of the 2018 TTT series, points can still be earned from other races you do through the end of October. The point totals through the High Point Sprint Triathlon have been updated on the TTT website, so check to see how you're doing. The top 20 are listed. If you would like to verify that we've got your point totals correct, or would like to get additional points for other races you've done this year with our preferred race providers, drop an email to to get that done!

Let's close out 2018 strong!
