TEAM ATP LAUNCHES UNIQUE AQUATHLON SERIES
THE CANNONBALL RUN
Team ATP and Event Management partner, 3-Disciplines, have assembled a 3-part swim/run aquathlon series, called The Cannonball Run; set to occur at William H. Haithco Recreation Area in Saginaw, Michigan during the summers 2016-2018. The dates and times for the 2016 Cannonball Run are:
Wednesday, 29-Jun-16, 7pm
Tuesday, 26-Jul-16, 7pm
Tuesday, 23-Aug-16, 7pm
Our goal with The Cannonball Run is to grow the popularity of the multisport lifestyle in the Great Lakes Bay area. We also plan to use the proceeds raised from The Cannonball Run to fund youth multisport programs in the Saginaw Valley.
In conjunction with 3-Disciplines, we have developed two great courses for both the veteran swimmer/runner multi-sport athlete (1500m swim / 5k run) as well as a perfect event for the new multi-sport athlete (500m swim / 2.5k run) that may not be ready for a long distance. If athletes need to work on the open water swim or just get more comfortable in the open water this was designed with them in mind. Few multi-sport athletes can say they don’t need work in that area. The veterans can use this as a great brick workout to wake up the legs after a weekend of racing to get ready for the upcoming weekend of racing or just to work on specific areas like transition all in a great park suited perfectly for an event like this. The event will be chip timed with a time trial style start. Relays are also welcomed at the longer distance.
Prizes will be awarded for the top three male and female finishers at each distance in each race. Series champions for the long distance will receive a $150 Xterra gift card good toward purchase of a new wetsuit in addition to free racing for the following year.
