Scofield TriathlonWhere can you spend quality time with your family, fish, hike, hear a live band, eat like a king, and run a triathlon? Athletes and spectators had the choice of dutch oven chicken, BBQ pork, hamburgers, or spagetti at the post race bash. Matt Russell, dutch oven connoisseur, knocked it out of the park with a delicious roast BBQ pig. This race was voted #1 Utah Triathlon in 2006 by Trihive readers, and we quickly learned why. Boasting itself as the highest elevation triathlon in the United States at 7800 feet, the Scofield Triathlon was a fantastic challenge at one of the best race venues in the state. Next year put this one on your race calendar!Results:Tyler Hendrickson 1:10:57"David Ward 1:20:05"CJ Park 1:29:56"
Cache Valley TriathlonJosh Holmgren and CJ Park did a great job "representing" the Triple Threat at yesterday's Cache Valley Triathlon. Placing 10/288 overall and 3rd in his age group, Josh really put down some serious split times. Wanting to enjoy the race a little bit longer, CJ offered moral support to a fellow neighbor/athlete by waiting in T1 for nearly 15:00" for his friend to finish the swim. Great job!

SPUDMANBurley Idaho Lions Spudman TriathlonHome of the world's fastest swim courseWhat a great race where everyone involved is racing the same distance! There were over 1500 athletes all taking on the Olympic Distance. There isn't a better race to pit yourself against the competition; whether that be a personal goal, last year's time, or other athletes in the field. All who participated found out why this is one of the most popular races in the country, filling up the registration last January in only 19 hours!

Utah Summer GamesHey it ain't the Olympics, but it's the closest thing we're going to come to titan glory. With 106 F threating the day, a few of us decided that an early morning sprint race would be a great way to start off the weekend.Tyler Hendrickson 1:14:18Dave Hendrickson 1:33:37
Escape From AlcatrazI am here to report that one of our own successfully swam 1.5 miles from Alcatraz Island, then went on to bike a hilly 18 miles, and run a grueling 8 mile "escape" from the authorities before she was finally FREE! Great job Jen! If you are interested in doing the Escape from Alcatraz next season June 8, 2008, here is the link for the website and the lottery: Escape From AlcatrazJen McGlothlin 3:00:51
Vikingman, Burley Idaho"Welcome to Burley, Idaho's first annual half-ironman distance triathlon, the VikingMan. This test of strength and endurance consists of a 1.2 mile swim with the current of the scenic Snake River, a 56 mile bike loop through a patchwork of beautiful farm terrain, and a 13.1 mile run that borders the river, teaming with wildlife and a spectacular view of Mt. Harrison. The VikingMan Triathlon is an opportunity for athletes of all levels to dream, to strive, and to conquer. We anticipate a great race this year! Come meet the challenge!"Well we're happy to report that several Triple Threat members were more than just up to the challenge.

Olympus Sprint Training RaceThank you to everyone who came out for our Olympus Sprint Race Training Day! I think my final count was 17 racers. With perfect temperatures outside for biking and running, the pool temp was actually a little warmer than most of us were use to. I know the "hill" up 39th South caught a few people off guard, but I'm sure you'll be stronger for it. Good luck to all of you who have their first race coming up in the next few weeks. Hopefully this training day gave you a little taste of what the big race-day will be like.
