This Weekend

This weekend is full of local events in the great Huntsville area and the Nike Fleet Feet Racing Team will be contending for top spots in each of them.

On Saturday night on the campus of University of Alabama Huntsville, is the annual HTC Twilight 5km.  This race always draws a fast crowd and the course will reward those who have been training in the heat as the men's and women's events begin at  6:30 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. respectively.  Confirmation from Greg Reynolds, Tim Vinson, Dink Taylor, Rick Maehlmann and Katie Maehlmann have been received that they will be testing the course and conditions.

Tis the season for triathlons and the 2010 Wet Dog Triathlon will be held in Decatur on Saturday morning.  The format is 400 meter swim in a tributary of the Tennessee River, a 15km out and back bike course to Rhodes Ferry Park and a 5km loop run along the Point Mallard Trail.  James Falcon will be representing the team at this event.

Good luck to all team members where ever your fleet feet take you this weekend.
