Score This!!!, Inc., known for its well-organized, well-attended and never-cancelled events, has added a half iron distance triathlon to it long list of multisport events for this year. The first annual Pain in the Alleganies presented by Ridecarbon.com, will be held in beautiful Allegany State Park in Salamanca, N.Y., on Sept. 23, 2012.
In addition to the longer distance triathlon, Pain in the Alleganies includes an aquabike half iron, a sprint distance triathlon, a duathlon and relays in multiple events. The entire race takes place within Allegany State Park, which will be sure to offer both spectacular views and challenging climbs.
“You couldn’t ask for a better way to end your race season,” stated Rich Clark, vice president of Score This!!!, Inc. “This race venue is one of the best around. It has amazing views, especially considering the time of year. But, both the bike and the run course have their share of hills. It’s not called PAIN in the Alleganies because it’s going to be easy.”
Ridecarbon.com, based out of Bradford, Pa., is the presenting sponsor for the race and will be providing awards for the half iron distance triathlon. Prizes for that race go five deep for both female and male athletes and include Gray disc wheels, Synergy Sport wetsuits, aero helmets, Zoot Ultra TT 5.0 shoes and Fuelbelts.
The schedule of the race is as follows:
8:00 a.m. (sun up): Sprint and Duathlon
8:30 a.m.: Triathlon and Aquabike Half Distance
