I know this forum is for racing and training, so if this is not the correct spot for my post please let me know and i'll move it!
So I'd really like to organize a triathlon event in my town. We have a nice stretch of rail trail, a lake, and obviously roads connecting everywhere. I have attached a google maps overhead view of the tentative course. I'd like to ask here though, what would be the correct steps in trying to make this happen? I'd like to work with the town parks and rec. dept, as they organize a footrace once a year so they have some experience with doing these types of events.
I'd also like to ask for any input as to lengths of each leg. I am planning on it being a charity event so I want as big a turn out as possible, and attract both competitive and "for-fun" people.
And lastly, what would an appropriate registration fee be? I was thinking somewhere in the area of $30, which would cover insurance, a t shirt, any race supplies, and maybe $10-15 towards the charity that we pick to benefit.
I'd love to hear any input or suggestions on this! thanks alot
I know the map is very crude i just through it together. would start at a lot biking down the rail trail, then back to the rec center, swim across lake, then run back around to lake to end at the rec center.
