The race within the race: The Durapulse Performance Company Pro Race presented by Iron Gear Sports
Tempe, Arizona – Red Rock Company announced today the professional prize purse for the Durapulse Pro Race at the Soma Triathlon presented by Iron Gear Sports which will take place in Tempe, AZ on Sunday, October 23, 2011. The 1/2 iron course (1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike and 13.1 mile run) features a swim in Tempe Town Lake, an urban bike course within the Tempe city limits, and a run on the foot paths surrounding the lake. The draw for professional athletes comes in the timing of the race, taking place just a month prior to Arizona’s full iron distance race and on much of the same course. The Durapulse Pro Race presented by Iron Gear Sports will now offer a $15,000 prize purse, available only to professional athletes, and is being billed as a race within the race thanks to Durapulse Performance Company and Iron Gear Sports who have funded the generous prize purse.
The prize purse will be broken down 5 deep as follows. $3,000 to the 1st place finishers in both the male and female divisions. 2nd – $2,000, 3rd – $1,250, 4th – $750, and 5th – $500. Professional athletes will be treated to a top-tier transition area, VIP finish line accommodations and special recognition at the Durapulse Performance Company Professional Awards Ceremony.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Arizona chapter of Chances for Children (www.chancesforchildrenaz.com). Further race information can be found on the race website, www.redrockco.com. The Soma Triathlon is quickly shaping up to be Tempe’s premier triathlon event, so register today!
