As we showed in our last post, local race participation was up 17% this year vs. last year, which is something everyone in our tri community should be proud of.
Everyone who supported the local scene should pat themselves on the back, although we want to highlight those of you who truly went Beast Mode this season.
All in there were 63 individuals in our database who raced at least 5 of the 18 races we tracked (Utah Triathlon Championship Series & Challenger Races combined - scroll down to see the list), with 25 people racing 6+ times.
For those who raced 6+ times we have an award for you... shoot us a message and let's hook you up with some swag!
ps. in order to help us not miss any of your races, please register using the same name every time! (Mike vs. Michael, etc, etc). We try to clean those up, but it's tough to monitor for everyone :)

We started a Patreon account (link below) with the hope of raising a few bucks towards awards & swag for athletes of all abilities in our tri community. We've given out a lot over the past 2 years, but would like to continue to expand our offerings & the volume we can do.
If you enjoy Utah Tri Buzz and would like to pitch in, any amount would be greatly appreciated... (there may be something in it for you as well!)
We're also always grateful for talented people who contribute in terms of time... let us know if you'd like to be part of the Utah Tri Buzz team.
