Timex Gear Giveaway and Free Running Group

Dr Teeth and the Electric Mayhem don't have anything on the Midwest Mayhem Triathlon!

It's getting closer to go time for the Midwest Tri Series and up first is the Midwest Mayhem out at Lone Star Lake in Lawrence, Kansas. In an effort to draw in racers and raise awareness of the events, they created Facebook pages for each race and they are offering some Timex gear and other odds and ends if you simply like their pages.

"Ohhh yeah! Whooo!
Everybody's lover, everybody's brother, I wanna be your lifetime friend.
Crazy as a rocket, nothin in my pocket, I keep it at the rainbow's end.
I never think of money, I think of milk 'n honey, grinnin like a cheshire cat.
I focus on the pleasure, somethin' I can treasure, can you picture that?
Can you picture that?"

A preview of the swim, bike and run for the Midwest Mayhem can be found HERE (swim), HERE (bike) and HERE (run). The race organizers are looking to integrate you and online tools. They have issued the following statement.

If you live in KC, surely you have heard of Ultramax sports!?

They are big in race timing and have opened a new store in Kansas City.  In an effort to generate some more interest and awareness in the community, they teamed up with a local running coach to offer free supported long runs on Saturdays.  You can't go wrong with a supported 12 mile run for free!

Ultramax Sports and Personal Best Running Program will be hosting free informal group runs from our Prairie Village store beginning Saturday, June 9th at 6:30am. The group runs will be every Saturday through July 11th. Course will be set up for a maximum of 12 miles with water stops every 2 miles. If you need additional information contact our staff member Bob @ 913-219-5185.

Have a good weekend!
