Athletes who have completed more than 100 events to be honored
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — USA Triathlon announced today the launch of the USA Triathlon Century Club, a program that will honor multisport athletes who have completed more than 100 triathlons over the course of their careers.
Athletes who have completed 100-plus races are asked to submit to USA Triathlon a year-by-year breakdown listing the number of events finished. All completed triathlons — domestic and international — are eligible for submission.
To be recognized in the initial Century Club listing, athletes must submit their event totals to email@example.com by March 1. USA Triathlon will then honor Century Club members based on 100-race increments — the 100 Race Club, 200 Race Club, 300 Race Club, 400 Race Club and even the 500 Race Club.
Athletes will receive commemorative items of increasing value as they progress to higher levels. Additionally, all Century Club members will be recognized on the USA Triathlon website and in USA Triathlon Magazine.
“Our aim was to develop a way to recognize and reward the true veterans of our sport,” USA Triathlon CEO Rob Urbach said. “I look forward to welcoming the initial members to the Century Club in March. I believe the USA Triathlon Century Club can become a motivating factor for our members to stay active and keep fueling the multisport lifestyle.”
After the initial Century Club listing, USA Triathlon will add new additions to usatriathlon.org once per quarter. USA Triathlon may perform random audits of submitted lists at any time.
Additionally, USA Triathlon is seeking guesses for the number of initial members of the Century Club. The individual with the closest guess to the number of Century Club members as of March 1 will receive a USA Triathlon-branded Rudy Project helmet. Guesses can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
