Upcoming Races and Local Race Results

  • Socorro Chile Harvest Triathlon - 8/12

Las Vegas Olympic Triathlon    

Matt & Cathy were the lone SSR participants at the 7/23 Las Vegas Tri. Matt came through with an 8th place finish in his AG while Cathy won hers! RESULTS

Burn Lake Duathlon      

Not only did Robert help out at the mini-tri, but he raced the Burn Lake Duathlon on Saturday the 22nd. This is one of the toughest du's in the state, with two runs and a VERY long bike in the middle. To top it off, he got 3rd in his AG!!

Kelly Mine Run   

The recent rains made for a nice race from Magdalena to Kelly on July 9th. Ephraim Ford came in 2nd, about 4 minutes behind Matt, a visiting runner from Ohio who broke the course record. Other notable finishes included Kim Schaeffer, who was 2nd female.

More details & photos will come as I take time to put them in. This was a great race as usual.

Bottomless Triathlon

Robert was the only SSer present for the full Bottomless Triathlon. That meant he had some tough competition in his age group as usual and finished in 67 minutes.

Buffalo Springs Trathlons

Terry Moore, Mike Montoya, and others competed in the Buffalo Springs races on the weekend of June 24-25. Check out the results page where you can see that Mike not only did the sprint but he won it!

Grandma's Marathon

Katie continues to make great progress towards her goal of a sub-4:00 marathon. This time it was Grandma's Marathon in Duluth, MN, where she finished in 4:21:24, or about the top 1/3rd of all females.

France Stevens Triathlon

Not so windy as the last tri! There were enough last minute entries to make it a fun race with 84 participants. As usual, the run was about .2 miles short in the 5k/35k/400m race.

 I have scanned in the raceday results, which have at least error (Mary Wells in M45-49) Page 1 & Page 2.

Duece's Wild Triathlons

The results are finally up on the race's  webpage. Great job to Cathy Pfeifer for finishing third in the Olympic tri, Matt for being 5th/11 in a tough age group. They also finished well (3rd I blieve) in the Off-road tri relay!

Kona 70.3

Steven Montoya had an excellent time in Kona for the 70.3 (was called a half-ironman). He even placed 15th in his age group and 113th overall.

Socorro Tri-Clinic & Mini-Tri

With nice weather and a large turnout, the clinic and the mini-triathlon were big successes! Many thanks to our volunteers for keeping the course safe, for Mark and Terry Mico for coaching the clinic, and to the participants, who all completed their first triathlons!
