TRIFECTA Brings Together Three Sporting Events
Triathlon | Cycling | Running
Posted: Monday, November 29, 2010
TRIFECTA is a new lifestyle-sports festival that is the first of its kind to bring together three running, three cycling, and three triathlon courses during a single weekend event.
On June 2 - 5, 2011, Tri-California and the City of Santa Clarita will host these events with the support of Cycling Olympic Silver Medalist Mari Holden, Triathlon Olympic Bronze Medalist Susan Williams and United States National Cycling Champion Tony... Cruz as patrons of the event.
"We launched the TRIFECTA with the goal of bringing a new and diverse category of sporting events to athletes," commented Terry Davis, owner of Tri-California, Inc. "A trifecta occurs when someone chooses the top three finishers in a race in the correct order. We are expanding the definition of TRIFECTA to include bringing together the three worlds of active lifestyle sports in one spectacular event. TRIFECTA offers people of all ages and activity levels an opportunity to come together and celebrate leading a healthy and active lifestyle through running, cycling, and the sport of triathlon."
The weekend's events will include:
Sprint (500 yard swim, 12 mile bike, 3 mile run)
International Distance (1 mile swim, 30 mile bike, 6 mile run)
Long Course (1.5 mile swim, 60 mile bike, 15 mile run).
A Piccolo Fondo (33 miles)
Medio Fondo (60 miles)
Gran Fondo (110 miles)
The range of events is designed to accommodate all ages and skill levels, from kids to grandparents and beginner to pro. Participants can choose to enter one course or a combination of the running, cycling and triathlon events.
For the most hardcore multi-sport athletes, there is the TRIFECTA Triple Crown, where a participant competes in the Medio Fondo, 10k race and the International distance triathlon.
A shorter version of the TRIFECTA Triple Crown includes the 5k running race, the Piccolo Fondo and the sprint triathlon.
The four-day sports festival is based in the heart of Santa Clarita's Town Center around the brand new Westfield Mall and Patios. In addition to the main running races, Gran Fondos, and triathlons, activities at the TRIFECTA include a gala dinner, Town Center Criterium Bicycle Race, several family fun events, and a large sports expo with demonstration areas.
"Santa Clarita has an established active lifestyle, represented by the outstanding running trails, picturesque canyons for cycling and great swimming at Castaic Lake in the Santa Clarita Valley. This mixed with over 35 miles of dedicated bicycling paths make it the ideal place for the TRIFECTA," adds Davis.
Registration for the events is now open, with limited entries for the Triathlon and Fondo Cycling Rides. Groups can reserve blocks of entries by contacting email@example.com.
