Are you ready for your next challenge?  Now that you've trained and competed, you'll be ready to race again at the Inaugural Iron Girl Rocky Gap Triathlon on September 9, 2012.  It's not too late to register, and as a special incentive for 2012 Athleta Iron Girl Columbia Triathlon finishers, there is a tailor-made discount of $25.00 off the regular individual entry fee.  Simply enter discount code "IGCOLFINISHER" when registering.   


The Iron Girl Rock Gap Triathlon takes place at the Rocky Gap State Park in Allegheny County, Maryland. This pristine "girls' get away" venue provides the ideal backdrop for a triumphant race, with the swim taking place in beautiful Lake Habeeb, fed by Rocky Gap Run, which winds its way through an impressive mile-long gorge, displaying sheer cliffs, overlooks and a hemlock forest dense with rhododendron and mountain laurel.


So grab a friend, challenge yourself, continue your journey, and feel the excitement and thrill of becoming an Iron Girl again in September. Click HERE to register today!  


And if you think you want to take it up a notch, check out the Bugyee Classic Intermediate Distance race at the ChesapeakeMan Endurance Festival on September 29th in Cambridge, MD. The course is flat and fast!  Register today!
