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.
For many on Team RTA it was the first time racing the distance. Others placed in the top of their age group and set new PR’s. We also had an impressive number of women racing! Oh, and did we mention Team RTA place 2nd in IRONMAN’s Tri Club challenge?
Below is a video recap. We hope you enjoy!

Our Team Races are always a ton of fun. We typically get 15-30+ club members to participate and with our flashy team kits, we are hard to miss. At most Team Races we end the day with a post race party and celebration at the Team tent and trailer – complete with food, drinks and music. At “destination races” we also like to plan pre-race Team Dinners.
While triathlon/running is technically an individual sport and we see it differently.
