The Tacoma Rainman is back again for 2013! This year we will hold the event at the The YMCA Morgan Tacoma and we are excited to offer it there! It continues to be part of annual RainMan Indoor Triathlon Series that we will expand over time. You’ll want to read below for some exciting new changes that we’ve made to spruce things up a bit!
There will be five music themed, off season, training, fun and/or competition RainMan events! Four of them, including the YMCA Morgan Tacoma RainMan, will be held in the evening into the morning. The Seattle RainMan will continue to be held during the day. All will have a music genre theme, starting with the 70’s in Issaquah, the 80’s in Tacoma, the 90’s in Seattle, the 2000’s in Silverdale, and a little bit of everything for the finale in Redmond. Disco balls, costumes, you name it, we are encouraging it! You are bound to have fun! Show up wearing a costume, change into it between the swim and the bike, put on some big hair, or do whatever else you fee like. We want you to have fun, and with our DJ, disco lights, and prizes for costumes, we expect to party into the night! 🙂
A RainMan Indoor Triathlon offers a unique experience for beginners wanting to try a triathlon for the first time all the way to experienced triathletes who want to launch their triathlon season early or tune up their off season training. With a 15 minute indoor swim in the pool, a 30 minute indoor bike on our Elite Wireless trainers (athletes bring their own bikes), and then a one lap 2.25 mile run outside ( weather dependent ), the RainMan Indoor Triathlon caters to those who want to have a safe first triathlon experience all the way to those athletes who want to compete for the best time.
Participants start in waves of 12 every 20 minutes, with up to 300 participants total. Participants get a T-Shirt, Post Race Food and a Finishers Medal! We’ll recognize 1st, 2nd and 3rd overall winners with a variety of prizes from our sponsors, like shoes from Road Runner Sports last year. Age group winners will be recognized for 19 and under, 20 to 29, 30 to 39, and so on… Overall winners will all get trophies and age group winners will receive a metal age group winners plaque. We will also be working hard with our sponsors to give other prizes to folks.
Last year we had athletes singing in their waves as they competed to cover the most distance on their bikes while on the trainers. Participants have ranged from 14 to 86 years old! Make sure to join us for this unique and fun experience!
