July held plenty of training and racing for Northeast Multisport members!
The month kicked off with a fun run on July 1st, the Millennium Red, White, and Brews Beer Relay. Taking place at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, the event featured relay teams of 4 people racing 1 mile each after drinking a can of beer (or soda)! A dozen team members enjoyed the festive atmosphere.
On July 10th, 22 NEMS members raced the Olympic distance triathlon at Mass State in Winchendon, Massachusetts. The course was packed with familiar faces, and the finish line was full of high fives. Many great performances on the course and even a beer tent to celebrate with teammates at the end of a good race!
On July 24th 6 NEMSers took on the full 140.6 at Ironman Lake Placid in NY, even claiming a 4th place finish in the male 25-29 age group! Congratulations Steve!
On July 23rd a group got together at Ellacoya State Park to do a recon ride of the 56 mile Timberman 70.3 bike course. Both veterans and first timers had a good time getting more practice or familiarizing themselves with the course.
Lucas Pozzetta had the first win of his professional career at the Boston Triathlon on July 31st. Congratulations Lucas!
Overall July 2016 was a packed and successful month for Northeast Multisport!
