More women will TRI

Top_3_at_finishSwim, bike, run. It’s a challenging combination that more and more athletes are taking on … women in particular. Today, women account for more than a third of the members of USA Triathlon, the national governing body of the sport. In the early 1990s, that figure was around 10 percent. According to a story in Wednesday’s Kansas City Star, women ages 35-45 are the fastest-growing group for USAT, and that trend is attributed to the growth of women-only events. Tomorrow, Aug. 11, the KC Women’s Tri, presented by Garmin, will draw 350 female athletes to Smithville Lake, Missouri. The KC Tri, now in its second year, will attract seasoned triathletes and first-timers alike. Several lucky ladies will go home with a new personal trainer if they win one of the Forerunners Garmin will give away. Our Forerunner 305 Multisport is the ideal training tool because you can swap it from wrist strap to bike mount in seconds, all the while monitoring your speed, distance, pace, heart rate and other data. See it in action here. Best of luck to all the women competing tomorrow. Watch for race coverage and photos in a future post.
