Northeast Multisport members took on two of the early season races and had a lot to show for all of the hard early season training!

The destination race for this year was the the Florida 70.3 in Haines City, FL. Nearly a dozen team members tackled this this spectator friendly course, with a freshwater swim, moderately hilly bike course, and 3 loop run.
