Each year Team RTA organizes Team Races. They are always a BLAST!
This year one of our Team Races was the inaugural IRONMAN Lake Placid 70.3. The beautiful yet challenging course set in the Adirondacks mountains did not disappoint.
Team RTA had 30+ athletes racing which made it a lot of fun. With nearly 100 RTA athletes & supporters on hand we had an incredible pre race dinner at the Crowne Plaza in Lake Placid. It was the perfect pre race gathering.
Race morning was a bit chilly, however it turned out to be a perfect day.

It is very important to note, in in order to permanently correct any of the elements below, it will take many reps of focusing on the one thing you are looking to improve.
