2015 Moreton Bay Grand Prix

Recommended Posts

Hi all, planning is well under way for this years duathlon at Lakeside Raceway. Slight change of date this year due to track availability on 1st August, but it has worked out ok being the weekend before the TQ State Duathlon champs. I have also added a third race for 7-11 year olds and this will be 400/4/400 and be held running along the pits and riding laps of the main straight so should be as safe as we can make it. We are keeping the Enduro category which people race both of the adult races and the times are combined. There will be just over $2000 in prize money with the chance of the winners of the Enduro winning up to $620, if they also win all the Primes.

 

I'm looking to make this race a bit different to other races, so am very open to any feedback on things you would like to see at an event. I would really like to handicap the second race for the Enduro people, but just unsure how to do this and get the timing correct, considering we will be doing the timing with Racesplitter on an iPad. One other idea I had while running the other day was to have a totally voluntary feature I could call 'Race Dating', a bit similar to Speed dating but would be held on a race track and not a pub and it would involve indicating on the registration page if you were single and not looking- 'S', single or taken and looking- 'L' or taken and not looking- 'T'. This code would be then placed on your leg or somewhere and people could have a bit of fun out there. Is this an innovative idea or has it been done before?

 

All the info is below and the Redcliffe Tri Club and myself would love to see you there.

Let's hope the weather will be a bit better than last year ;-)

 

I really liked the event though, so I'll probably be back!
