Regional Championship Clarification

We need your help! It has come to our attention that there is confusion on how “Regional” Championships work.

This is not the case!!! USAT has two types of championships, Regional (which anyone can enter) and National (you must qualify for). The Luray Sprint is […]

Meet pro triathlete Calah Schlabach

By |September 30th, 2014|

We had a lot of talent this year at both the Luray International and Sprint Triathlons.  Course records fell in both races by the same two athletes: Dan Feeney and Calah Slabach.

Yet, Calah […]
