Maumee Valley Tri-Adventure Race (solo or teams)

This will be the fifth year for me participating in this event.  The race consists of three legs:  road cycling (36 mi.), kayaking (6 mi.), and backpacking (8 mi).  Each year I assist in fielding one or more "non-competative" relay teams for the event (everyone gives their best performance in  their leg but there is no pressure to meet a specific finish time).  The event can also be done solo (I did it this way for the first time last year).  This is a really great event for both the novice and more advanced athletes.  The event is well organized, and is attended by a wide range of participants...from father/daughter teams, to casual outdoor enthusiasts, and of course some very serious athletes who count the seconds on the transitions and like to use this as a starting point for their summer season of racing. 

Website for the event:  Tri-Adventure Race Homepage

Visit the website for more details about the venue and the event, and feel free to contact me directly.  Give me a shout if you are interested in being part of relay team and are looking for additional team members.  I will be posting other meetups through the month of April for people interested in training together. 

Note:  Not having your own boat is not an excuse for missing this event.  There is a reasonably priced livery in Waterville, OH that will bring and pick up a rental boat to/from the race event for you and it is best to setup rental with them early.  They rent tandem and single kayaks in addition to canoes.  I also know of other rental options here in Michigan in case you "miss the boat" on the above mentioned livery.

    I'm wondering what the backpack leg is like. I'm warming up my triathlon season and would like to try other types of races this year. Could you give me your opinion? I would need to rent a kayak if i went, so I'd like to hear the details on that as well. Thanks!

    I know this is totally last minute, but I am planning on doing a fairly easy first paddle of the season tomorrow afternoon (Sunday) Mar 30 on the Huron putting in at Geddes Pond.

      Connie, did you get my more detailed e-mail about kayak rental and practicing? If not, possibly check your spam folder. --jim

      Connie, we need to arrange for the kayak and sign up your relay team for the race. Are you still interested in participating?

    I know of a relay team looking for a 3rd person to do the paddling leg. Anybody interested in just doing the paddle portion as part of a relay team?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
