USA Triathlon is pleased to announce that the Redman Triathlon in Oklahoma City, Okla. will serve as the site of the 2009 USA Triathlon Halfmax Long Course and Club National Championships.
The Pumpkinman Triathlon will host the 2008 championship near Las Vegas on Oct. 18. The 2010 championship venue will be announced next season.
"This is an exciting event. Not only will we be able to crown our Long Course Triathlon National Championships, but we will also be crowning our Club National Champions," said USAT National Events Director Jeff Dyrek. "Athletes of all experience levels will have the opportunity to contribute to their club's scoring whether it be the sprint, intermediate or long course distance event. Clubs will be able to bring athletes of all experience levels to compete."
The Trisports.com Halfmax National Championship is entering its fourth year and is supported by a network of qualifying events that span the nation. Beginning in 2008, only athletes who qualify for the Halfmax Championship will be eligible to compete for the coveted world championship slots. Each year the championship attracts some of the very best long course athletes from across the nation.
The Halfmax Long Course National Championship features a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike and 13.1 mile run. The Club National Championship features sprint and intermediate distances in addition to the long course option.
The 2008 and 2009 Halfmax Championships will produce a minimum of 10 slots per age group for Team USA and the 2009 and 2010 Long Course Triathlon World Championship.
"We are excited to be working with the Redman Triathlon group," Dyrek said. "With their good reputation and completion of USAT's Race Director Certification course, we are confident that athletes will experience a top-notch event."
