Please remember that this weekend is a big race weekend for the PTC. The Pittsburgh Triathlon begins Friday evening with a expo/race packet pickup and on Saturday is the Pittsburgh Sprint Triathlon and on Sunday we have the Pittsburgh Olympic.
Continuing with the trend of the past couple of years, the PTC will again have a huge presence at the race however the folks at Friends of the Riverfront need our support. As you know, volunteers are the backbone to the support and without volunteers these races would not be able to go on. Volunteers are needed in order for our hometown race to be successful. If you are planning to race the Olympic, please come help out with the Sprint on Saturday and vice versa. Not racing this weekend, come help out with both! This is a great way to show support for the triathlon community here in Pittsburgh.
All PTC members that choose to volunteer or race will receive deeply discounted merchandise at the PTC tent at the expo and the first 100 members who visit the tent will receive a free PTC swim cap! Not a PTC member yet or you still need to renew your membership for the season, there will also be special membership pricing for PTC membership of $50(individual)/$75(family) to become a PTC member for the remainder of 2013 and all of 2014. In addition, new members who sign up at the expo will receive a free gift!!!!!
