Hey CHAMP Dudes...I have a few questions, Pal, about this Border War thing.
  • "I Live alone...I train alone...I don't need nobody on my team!"  Do I have to be a tri club member to participate?   Nope...You can race as an independent.  The
    team scores will be based on your state residency.

  • If PA wins the Border Battle "Cup" or whatever prize there is...Who gets it and where will it go?   CHAMP will get it and pawn it for gas...just kidding...the
    triathlon club with the most members participating will be awarded the award on behalf of the state.  It is up to the club representative at that point of
    where the award will be.

  • I am not a part of "Tri Club"...but rather I am part of a Triathlon "TEAM"...is this still considered a "club?"  Yep...club...team...it's all a very similiar type of thing.  
    So a "team" (as opposed to a "club") can take home the award and be represented

(just like the start of the run).  Repeat the first mile of the run course and finish by the beach!  
REMEMBER...THE RUN WILL REPEAT THE FIRST MILE PORTION OF THE COURSE.
