Gearing Up For The Avia Wildflower Triathlons Festival
Register For Prepaid Camping

We are just about three months away from the 2008 Avia Wildflower Triathlons Festival, and there is no doubt you are in full training mode. While you are so busy training, it is important you do not forget to arrange for your race weekend accommodations.

There is no better way to enjoy Wildflower than to camp, and experience the unique racing and festival atmosphere that many refer to as the "Woodstock of Triathlon."

Registering for pre-paid camping will allow you to avoid the lines, and enter the park through the express gate. You will be on your way to find a camp site, and settle in for the weekend. All campsites are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, so come early and enjoy the beautiful natural setting the park has to offer. Please note that hook-up sites are very limited, and not guaranteed. Purchasing pre-paid camping does not ensure you a hook-up site. Camping is paid per vehicle, not per site. Learn more about camping pricing information, travel tips and additional accommodations options. See you in the park.
Hit The Gym This Winter To Swim Faster Next Summet
Five exercises to build swim strength
By Brad Culp: Triathlete Magazine

Nov. 13, 2007 -- Sure, triathlon is three sports all rolled into one, so it may seem a little ridiculous to spend a few months ignoring two of the three sports, but if you really want to improve at one discipline, it's something you have to do.

Earlier this week, I spoke to the overall amateur champion at Clearwater, Janda Ricci-Munn, about what makes him so damn fast (he went 3:58 in Clearwater). He told me that he spent a few years just focusing on his run and now the guy runs like the wind. This winter, he plans on doing the same for his swim, which has been his Achilles heel in the past. If you're like Ricci-Munn and your swim is the one sport that's keeping you from triathlon greatness (or mediocrity), try some of these swim-strength building exercises over the next two months and you'll be swimming like Andy Potts next season, or at least you won't be last out of the water.
