The Blackstone River Valley Greenway Challenge Team Triathlon

  • September 28, 2013 · 8:00 AM

UPDATE 08/02: Team Random Greatness is now complete - me, Monica, Peg, Jeff and Brenda will be team one. If we get enough interest in another team (Random Greatness Too) then we can enter another one.

=====

Team Random Greatness will be competing in several different team relays in 2013 and would love to have others from our group join our team (or assemble your own) to compete in these events along with us.


 

The Blackstone River Valley Greenway Challenge strings together numerous segments that include river/lake paddles, road/mountain peddles, or a road/trail plods. This will be our sixth year competing in this race. While the actual course route won't be announced until two weeks before the race (the course changes every year), this year's 57.2 mile race begins in Worcester, MA and finishes in Lincoln, RI.

There will be seven different segments:

  • 1.) 4.0 mile Trail/Street/Trail Run
  • 2.) 3.0 mile Lake/River Paddle
  • 3.) 17.5 mile Road Bike
  • 4.) 5.5 mile Mountain Bike
  • 5.) 2.1 mile Flat Water Paddle
  • 6.) 19.0 mile Road Bike
  • 7.) 6.1 mile road Run

WE DEFINITELY NEED SOMEONE FOR SEGMENTS #3 17.5 mile Road Bike, #4 5.5 mile Mountain Bike, and #6 19.0 mile Road Bike.

WE MAY NEED SOMEONE FOR SEGMENT #1 4.0 mile Trail/Road/Trail Run.

While we will enter the Recreational Division we are looking to be competieve.

Let me know if you are interested - we need to submit our team registration by September 1st. The cost is $60 per person.

Let me know if I can answer any questions or help you put a team together. If you would like to be part of a team indicate in your RSVP what part of the race you would like to do and maybe we can piece together a team or two.

    Team Random Greatness made their return to the Greenway Challenge after taking a year off with a few new faces - Peg (road bike), Brenda Vail (trail run), and Jeff (mountain and road bike). Monica Trust did the road run and I did the two kayak segments. This year's course covered about 57.2 miles between Worcester, MA and Lincoln, RI - 4 mile trail run, 3 mile lake/river paddle, 17.5 mile road bike, 5.5 mile mountain bike, 2.1 mile lake kayak, 19 mile road bike, 6.1 road run. There were about 90 teams entered in the various categories - 34 were in our "Recreational Division". We finished the course in 5 hours 8 minutes 52 seconds - good enough for 13th place in our division. Not sure where we finished overall (final results not posted yet) but am guessing in the top 1/3. A great effort by everyone!

    I haven't trained in a while so if someone else is interested in doing segment 1 who might be in better shape, is fine with me. If I'm your only option, sure I'll do it. Will do my best :-)

    I have confirmed: my friend Jeff will do BOTH #4 and #6. I guess that means we both need to register for this soon, huh? Do you guys register the team and we hand over our wallets to you?
