You sign up for a triathlon to swim, bike and run, but sometimes Mother Nature has a different plan. Inclement weather like heavy rain can have an effect on the body of water you’re swimming in for days afterwards. For your own safety, race officials might pull the plug on the swim portion if water quality standards are not up to par. Here’s how to approach your race when the swim is cancelled and your event turns into a duathlon:

Philly Sprint Tri 2015-026 (2)

  • Embrace the challenge. Sure this isn’t what you signed up for, but now it’s just a multisport event of a different color and you’re a multisport athlete. (Plus, this means you don’t have to deal with a soaked wetsuit after you cross the finish line, right?) Shift your focus to biking and running to your full potential and see what you can do.
  • Go out conservatively.Don’t fall into the trap of treating the first run like an open 5K, warns Dave Sheanin, a coach for D3 Multisport in Boulder, Colo. If it’s a run-bike-run, think of the first run as your warm-up. “Most triathletes aren’t used to the run-bike transition,” he says. “So focus on good form and high turnover.”
  • Try again next year.It may have been your A-race for the season, and that is a huge letdown. But that’s all the more reason to come back with a vengeance next year. Take this guy’s attitude!

Launched in partnership with presenting sponsor Philadelphia Insurance Companies (PHLY), organizers of the 2015 Johnson & Johnson TriRock Philadelphia Triathlon announced today that the the PHLY Cup Pro Division will return this June. Held in conjunction with the Olympic-distance race on Sunday, June 28, the PHLY Cup will offer pro triathletes the chance to compete for a prize purse totaling $25,000.

“This exciting event draws world-class athletes and weekend warriors, helping to put a spotlight on the City of Philadelphia and raise both money and awareness for important charities,” Philadelphia Insurance Companies President and CEO Bob O’Leary said in a press release about the news. “It’s a unique event where you can find the top professionals in their sport compete on the same course as everyday athletes. TEAMPHLY loves hosting and competing each year.”

The PHLY Cup prize purse of $25,000 (split evenly between the men and women top finishers), breaks down as follows:
– Winner: $6,000
– Runner-up: $3,500
– 3rd place: $1,500
– 4th place: $1,000
– 5th place: $500

“With other races cutting support for pros, we knew it was important to the industry for us to continue offering a prize purse,” said Nick Lynch of the TriRock Triathlon Series. “We are beyond proud of our partnership with Philadelphia Insurance Companies and look forward to a great event in June with the best in triathlon competing on one of the most challenging Olympic distance courses in the U.S. We’ll be announcing our pro field shortly and we expect it to be as strong as ever.”

The 11th annual event will feature three days of activities including a Multi-Sport Expo starting on Friday, June 26 and a sprint-distance race at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 27. Johnson & Johnson TriRock Philadelphia culminates with an Olympic-distance event at 6:30 a.m. on Sunday, June 28.

Fairmount Park will host the scenic and challenging race and fun, family atmosphere, with a finish line concert taking place on both days of the event. The start, finish and transition areas will be located just off of Martin Luther King Drive, near the base of Black Road.

What is a Race-within-a-race?

Age group and team triathletes may be eligible to compete in one of the races within the given TriRock Series event you are participating. If eligible, your times will be ranked against both your age group (or team type) and those in the Challenge.

Triathlon Club Challenge
Triathletes competing in the Triathlon Club Challenge will compete against other tri clubs. The top ten tri clubs will receive a post-race finish area for athletes to relax.

Military Challenge
Triathletes competing in the Military Challenge represent their service branch and compete against other active duty military participants. To qualify for the military division and public servant division, one must be an active member of The United States Military or employed by a government department or agency (i.e. Police, Fireman, Paramedic). Men and women will compete separately for the overall titles within the division. There will be NO age group distinctions.

What Race-within-a-race options are there?
Philadelphia: Triathlete Club Challenge
Austin: Triathlete Club Challenge & Military Challenge
Lake Geneva: Triathlete Club Challenge
San Diego: Triathlete Club Challenge & Military Challenge
Clearwater: Triathlete Club Challenge & Military Challenge


Why Compete in a Race-within-a-race?

It’s like competing in two races at one time!


How Can I Compete in a Race-within-a-race?

Simply select which race-within-a-race you’d like to compete in when filling out the registration form.

If you qualify for multiple races-within-a-race, you may only compete in ONE.
