Ten years from now someone will come up to you and say, “You were there? Awesome! Tell me about it!”
The 5th Annual AtlantiCare/Rothman Atlantic City Triathlon is going to be an event for the ages. DelMoSports and the greater triathlon community are celebrating our 5th year in Atlantic City by once again upping the stakes for what a triathlon can be ‘down the Shore. New in 2015, we are going to be spending the night camping on Bader Field. This will be complete with music, a bonfire, marshmallows, and a few surprises I’m sure! This is the IDEAL setting for what is sure to be an experience totally unique to racing triathlon in New Jersey as well as the entire east coast. What’s on tap for the TRI AC? Pure awesomeness:
On Saturday Morning, we’re going to have our 2nd Annual Paddle AC Stand Up Paddle Board Race. This is a 5 mile race that tours the back bay of Atlantic City. Last year, in nasty conditions, we had over 50 paddlers brave the wind and rain. This year we’re expecting well over 100 of the regions paddlers, both expert and beginner alike.
On Saturday High Noon, immediately after the paddleboard race, DelMoSports and the Mediocre Triathlete are proud to introduce the Donut Mile. Yes, you’ve heard of the beer mile, now, we have the donut mile. The whole objective of this race is to have fun and not take ourselves too seriously. Athletes of all abilities and ages, will get a chance to compete against one another to see who has got what it takes to run one mile, consume donuts, and then try not to puke. It’s going to be amazing!
On Saturday Afternoon, we’re holding the first ever Atlantic City Kid’s Triathlon Presented by the Steel Pier. Yes, your kids can do a triathlon (swim, bike, run) on an entirely closed course thanks to awesome Bader Field. There are various distances for the this race but there is a distance for every child. All kid’s competing in the race will receive an all day access pass to the Steel Pier in Atlantic City!
NOTE: The kid’s triathlon is for kid’s that are actively participating in a swim club. Kid’s will be swimming in the bay (with proper lifeguards on site) and should have ample experience in order to do so.
