From Dr Richard Izzo, TOUGHMAN SERIES Founder:
Our sport is based upon the ecosystem of athletes, races, retail and our governing body USAT. The ever growing sport has evolved into a club system. In that regard we at TOUGHMAN want to give back to the club system by supporting the people who organize, attract and train the athletes who do our races.
In 2017 we are instituting a CLUB LOYALTY PROGRAM that will reward clubs that participate in our races in a meaningful way. All clubs in the US that register and participate in our races will compete for a Top 3 CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP Prize Purse. There will be a separate LOCAL TRI CLUB Program as well as additional prizes to be awarded to local clubs. Top clubs will be awarded a cash purse that will be based upon a POINTS system that will be announced in the fall.
There will be more details in October of how your club can register and compete for this MEANINGFUL cash purse for the TOUGHMAN Half Iron series in the US.
Stay tuned for more info!
