Black Butte Triathlon Recap
June 17, 2012
On the windiest weekend yet, over 400 Black Butte Triathlon racers set out to conquer one of the most exhilarating and attractive courses that Northern California has to offer, at the 2nd Annual Black Butte Triathlon, with an outstanding weekendof competition. Saturday consisted of the Mt. bike Sprint Race: 800m swim / 20km bike/ 5 km trail run, and the Mt. bike Olympic distance, 1.5 km swim / 40km bike/ 10km trail run. Whereas Sunday was the Sprint road triathlon which consisted of an 800m swim / 20km bike/ 5 km trail run, and the Olympic distance race: 1.5 km swim / 40km bike/ 10km trail run.
And if you missed the event, we had many of the racers compete dressed in their favorite 80’s gear. That’s right, racers dug to the back of the closet for this one! These racers later participated in a dance off to win their weight in Lucero Olive Oil. As the title sponsor, Lucero announced two grand prize winners, Greg Feyereisn and Laura Dervoort, and two runner-ups who each won a case of Lucero Olive Oil. It was a phenomenal weekend out there and it was awesome to see participants of all ages.
