24 Hours of Triathlon

I am looking for paddlers for THIS weekend, the 9th and 10th of September for the inaugural race of the 24 Hours of Triathlon.

The race starts 11am Saturday and will be off the water by 12pm Sunday. The format will be as follows – the first round will be the traditional swim-bike-run round, then the competitors can mix up the order as much as they want. The swim is a 750m out and back from the east side of the beach. I would like to have AT LEAST of 7 boaters both days. The swim portion will end at 6:30pm on Saturday and then recommence 6:30am Sunday.

If you can provide your own gear, that'd be great. At the least, you'd need to have your own pfd and whistle. If you don't have a whistle, I can provide one, but my supply is limited. I am asking that all paddlers commit at least 4 hours – that way you'll get the benefits of volunteering: a tshirt, lunch, snacks/drinks during the event, and a great goodie bag that is begin put together for all volunteers. If you can commit to more than 4 hours, I'll make sure you can get more than one meal, or a coupon for a meal at Chipotle (they're providing burritos for all volunteers).

Also, since the race is all 'day', I'll make sure to have the boaters rotate off so they can have a break and stretch the legs as well as do any necessary things as well (feed, pee and such).

Please let me know if you can volunteer.

Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse
