2013 Race Calendar

I finally put together my 2013 race calendar.  It is amazing how busy a year can get before it has even started.  I have to schedule around a couple of vacations and my wife’s drill weekends.  Fortunately there are a plethora of events on the Front Range and I had no problem coming up with a few.

Germantown Half Marathon – March 17th- This will be my season opener, as Ralston Creek weekend is already booked.  My sister is training for this as well so it should be a fun weekend in Memphis.

Denver Century Ride – June 15th – I want to focus on cycling more this year and this should be a great event held over Father’s Day Weekend

Big Sky Duathlon – July 20th – I did this event two years ago and it proved to be a fast flat course
Copper Triangle Ride – August 3rd – This will be my second bike event of the season and it will include a lot of climbing.

I may also consider the Horsetooth Half Marathon and the Westside Duathlon once those dates are finalized.  I don’t have any triathlons lined up this year.  I will probably do a couple of Stroke & Stride events on Thursdays during the summer of 2013.  I will also try to make it to some Colorado Masters Running Association events and Rocky Mountain Road Runner events.  Those are cheap and always fun.

I need to decide on a swim event and will try to do Horsetooth or Racing Underground for a 1.2 or 2.4 mile swim.  Neither event has announced dates for 2013.
