Bethany Beach First Responders Sports Weekend
Announcing the first annual Bethany Beach First Responders Sports Weekend, formerly known as the Bethany Beach First Responders Triathlon-Duathlon-Aquabike! On September 22 and 23, two days of events have come home to Bethany Beach with new and exciting options for more athletes. The half marathon, triathlon, duathlon, aquabike, 5k and relay races are now open for registration. Athletes are encouraged to register now, since the events have sold out each year.
“We are thrilled to bring the Sports Weekend back to Bethany Beach, where all of this started back in 2012,” said Race Producer and Co-founder, Ernie Felici. “The town and its residents support us unconditionally and we are therefore thrilled to give back to the firefighters and other first responders.”
Proceeds from the weekend will benefit Bethany Beach Volunteer Fire Company and First Responders with options to also support Autism Speaks.
The weekend long series of events is a USA Triathlon Mid Atlantic Championship sanctioned event, produced by Focus Multisports, in partnership with Racine Racing and J&A MultiSports.
“We are psyched to expand the offerings for our athletes. We have amped up our features, like our 3D course map, and swag, like our event keepsakes and medals. Plus, Focus Multisports is known for our high level of professionalism and organization within a party-like atmosphere. Where better to be than in beautiful Bethany?!” said Race Producer and Co-founder, Rick Hundley.
Athletes will have the opportunity to compete in one of three races, featuring finishing medals, overall, first-timers, masters, Elite, Clydesdale, Athena, First Responder, and age group awards.
The half marathon and 5k will take place on Saturday, as well as a free first-timers clinic, that will offer help in preparing for the Triathlon events. On Sunday, the triathlon, duathlon and aquabike will take place. Sponsorships are currently available, at a variety of price points, with considerable benefits.
