Buster Britton Memorial Triathlon
|Date||Saturday, July 12|
NEW DATE! We are now the 2nd Weekend in July vs. June!
This great triathlon tradition continues, celebrating 28 years in 2014. Join us at this beautiful Alabama State Park Venue for one of the longest running triathlons in Alabama. The race honors the life of Buster Britton - one of the Birmingham area's original triathletes that lost his life in a fun run after completing the Hawaii Ironman only a short time earlier. Buster was a true inspiration for triathletes as the sport began to take shape in Alabama.
Important Note about State Park Entrance Fee:
Racers and spectators will be charged a $3 park entrance fee on race day. The fee is waived for racers that show their confirmation email on Friday for packet pick up.
This race is a great place for veterans of the sport to test their speed and for a beginner racer or weekend warrior to enjoy challenging but not long race distances. The swim is particularly inviting for those doing their first open water swim or that may view the swim as intimidating - Double Oak Lake is very calm and the swim is a very reasonable 400 yards.
