Triathlon Team Training Event

Alamo 180 was out a Boerne Lake on Saturday, March 17, for the first open water swim/bike brick of the season.

The water was a chilly 60 degrees! Two athletes swam 1500m and the rest swam 800m. Everyone did great! Congrats to Manny Longoria, Miriam Medina, and Crystal Tomlinson for doing their first open water swim. What an accomplishment!

Windy conditions on the hilly 25 mile bike course. Not an easy feat, but everyone braved it and finished strong. Our awesome Triathlon Team Captains, Lexa Rijos and Jamie Roadman, were riding alongside the athletes and cheering them on.

Next event at Boerne Lake is the Alamo 180 Rock the Mock Triathlon. Come join us!

Rock the Mock Triathlon

Come join Alamo 180 on March 31 for the Rock the Mock Triathlon

Start your 2012 season triathlon off right by doing a practice triathlon. Rock the Mock Tri is perfect for getting back into racing, without paying the expensive race registration fees. It’s also ideal for those interested in triathlon to try it out and see what the sport is all about. Non-Alamo 180 athletes pay $15, Alamo 180 athletes pay $5.

So get rid of those cobwebs, dust off your race bike, practice transitions, and get ready for racing season!

The bike and run course will be marked and water provided. Maps are available on the Rock the Mock page.

It’s a ton of fun and those that join us are glad they did!

Mock Triathlon – Aug 14th

Alamo 180 Mock Tri!

Come join Alamo 180 for a Mock Triathlon at Boerne Lake on August 14th at 8am. Non-members, the cost to join us is $15. Super cheap way to try a tri!

We will offer a Super Sprint (400m swim, 10 mi bike, 2 mi run), Sprint (800m swim, 15 mi bike, 3.1 mi run) and Olympic (1500m swim, 25 mi bike, 6.2 mi run).

We will mark both the bike and run courses and have cones at both the bike and run turn-around points. Water jugs will be provided on the run course.

If you feel unsure in the open water, purchase a water noodle(~$2 @ Wal-Mart) and tie it to your ankle using thin rope/string. Or, you can just skip out on the swim and ride and run with us!
