Some even did double duty! If you feel so inclined please post a comment here to thank them.
PS – Ann Ray did sign up but called in sick; please get well Ann.

Some of the people that I have been in communications with have been tossing around a group Ironman race. One possibility is go to Chattanooga (Ironman brand – Sept 2015), others are thinking Atlantic City (Family Challenge series – June 2015), others are considering Cedar Point (Rev3 now Family Challenge – Sept 2015). While others have already made their commitment to their races as the Ironman branded races tend to fill up fast. If you are considering Chattanooga then you should watch for it opening up next Monday or so. (If it doesn’t sell out on-site first).
Whatever your selection for those that must do the full triathlon rest assured we will try to get FAST presence at that race site in 2015.
