If You Never Tri, You'll Never Know!


Ironman Emilia-Romagna (Cervia) 70.3 (2023)

This weekend was probably the most organized I've ever seen Italy behave... So HATS OFF to the race director and his crew (and volunteers)! It was a full weekend of play! Thursday - 5k night run Friday - kids tri Saturday - Ironman Sunday - Ironman 70.3 + 5i50 (Olympic) All the while managing registrations, packet pick-ups, merchandise, athlete briefings, course set-up, road closures, bike check-ins and check-outs...  ^ can you imagine the logistics!? Over 6,000 racers and guesstimated 20,000+ visitors total in Cervia for the weekend. p.s. Cervia is on the east coast of Italy. Thursday - drive to Cervia, check in to AirBNB, packet pick up. With packets picked up, next order of business = Alessandro's 5k night run followed by a team dinner. He completely crushed it, breaking his 30 minute goal and dinner was delish!  Friday we meet for a brief swim in the Adriatic Sea - marvelously flat, calm, cool, and salted. Early night because Gina races tomorrow... Luca arrives by train
