5/24/2002 - Socorro Chile Harvest Triathlon
Registration for the Socorro Chile Harvest Triathlon (formerly the
Socorro Sprint Triathlon) has begun. The event name change reflects the
new event order: swim 400m/bike 20K/run 5K. The swim start will be
seeded according to an estimated 400 meter swim time you will provide
when you register, with the fastest swimmers going first. Race-day
entries will be seeded in a later wave.
- 8/12/2002 - Socorro Chile Harvest Triathlon Results
- Congratulations everyone on a great race!
- 8/7/2002 - Nearing 200 entries in the triathlon!
- We are nearing 200 entries in the triathlon, and so we will probably run out of the embroidered running caps. Get your entry in early; you will get a small discount if you don't get a cap, but if you wait until race day, you will be starting after the 200 preregistered people start, and nobody wants that.

- 6/17/2002 - USAT Sanctioning for Chile Harvest Triathlon
- AIG, the insurer of last year's triathlon, is longer providing event liability insurance. Our second choice for event liability insurance is through USA Triathlon, and therefore, we have obtained USAT sanctioning for the Socorro Chile Harvest Triathlon. The entry fee has changed to reflect the one-day USAT membership fee of $7 for non-USAT members.
We're also proud to announce the introduction of ChampionChip timing for
the Chile Harvest Triathlon. We've found enough sponsorship to offset
the increased costs due to the electronic timing, and so we've been able
to keep the registration fee the same as last year, $30. The fee goes up
to $35 on August 4th, and then to $40 for race-day registration.
We're also able to bring back the popular marathon caps from the 2000
race, and we'll be presenting a better quality award for the top
finishers in each category.

registration through active.com, and downloadable registration forms.

3/6/2002 - SSR to combine with Trex for Relay for Life
Our Relay For Life squad will combine with Fred Yarger's
former team, Trex Enterprises. Trex will have trouble
finding enough people this year, and Camille Scelzi, their
leader, and her husband, Mark Bottjer, have been extremely
helpful at SSR events in the past. Fred is signing people up
for the relay; as last year, it costs a $10 donation to sign
up for the relay itself. Fred is also taking any donations
you might like to make.

SSR will be organizing a club run from the San Marcial turnoff on NM
Hwy 1 to the Bosque del Apache visitor center on Sunday, February

1/10/2002 - Ad postings
I (Matt Perini) occasionally receive offers via e-mail that are designed for clubs and members.
I think SSR club members should be able to see these advertisements and
decide for themselves. So, from now on, I will post advertisements at
the web site under Items For Sale, but I won't claim any
responsibility for the validity of the offers.
1/10/2002 - Afternoon runs in store starting February
Liz Alvarez will also be starting a regular

February. Too many higher priority things are taking up my
time this winter. As a result, the race has been canceled.
