BTC 'Members-only' Triathlons/Duathlons
We try to have one member event each month from April through September. This year and past couple years we have held these informal events on the first monday of the month. All members are welcome to attend and compete. For insurance purposes, you must be a paid member of the club.

On an ordinary weekday at 6 p.m., about one dozen Bellingham Tri Club members met at the Lake Padden Bathhouse for the first-annual 'members-only' triathlon, either to participate in or support the informal event.
The course was a 1/2 mile swim, 14.5 mile bike, and 5.2 mile run, very similar to the competetive division of the traditional Lake Padden Triathlon (listed soon).
Members self-timed their event, were responsible for their own route-finding and safety on the course, and could also vary the distances according to their own desired workout.
Lance Romo set the buoy, watched the swimmers, handed out rewards and took the self-recorded times (and distances, if varied) from the finishers (which was everyone). Damien Hill and Harvey Varga (standing at right) watched the bikes. Husbands and wives watched the children and dogs.
All in all, it was a nice, friendly workout with minimal organizational effort. We look forward to expanding the turn-out next year!
