Discussion: Preliminary Sprint Venue Announcement

in: Senior Team USA Trials (Jun 3–5, 2016 - Kent, CT, US)

Subject to final confirmation once Insurance Requirement wrangling has occurred, it is likely that the Team Trials Sprint will be happening at Mount Holyoke College, South Hadley, Massachusetts.

We have access to locker room facilities from 4.30 - 7.30 pm, so starts will be in the evening, hopefully giving those travelling from NYC sufficient travel time.

We understand this is not the perfect venue location wise, but as you can see from the difficulties we've had finding a location, we're at the point that we feel accepting this offer is the best way to move forwards.

Ed and I will be discussing budget etc very shortly, and entries should be available by the end of the week.

Many many thanks to all the people who jumped in and tried to help us find a venue - it all all much appreciated. Particular thanks go to Tracy Whelan and Mike Schuh, who have been instrumental in securing this venue for us.

Now we can focus on the fun stuff! I was out on Pond Mountain at the weekend - those races are going to be epically awesome.

I think it's obligatory that there is ice cream at the finish.

Okay! Insurance wrangles are finally wrangled for the good. Mount Holyoke have been extremely helpful and accommodating.

Ed is extremely busy today but we hope to have entries open and preliminary details out by tomorrow evening.
