Hi,

Does anyone have the details (or a URL that has the details) of
the August 18th Danksin Women's Tri in Seattle?

I know that it is a lake swim and is a sprint distance, but I'd
like to know the exact distances, start time, start location,
etc.

It starts at 8am, and it does start at Seward Park.

Hi Ann!

Here's some info:

5k run,
20k run
I'm not sure about the swim - But I have the info at home and I will get
it to you.

I also have the phone # at home, and I will email you with that info on
Sunday.

The swim is at Seward Park, which is at the south end of Lk. Washington.
Which is east of Seattle and west of Bellevue.  (The lake is the divider
betwen the two cities.)

Jen

Both www.ontherun.com and TriLink
(weber.u.washington/~jewinter/trilink/trilink.htm) have information for racing
in the northwest, including the Danskin Tri.

BTW, my sweetie will be racing, and I will be volunteering.  Have a good race.

Has anyone gotten off the waitlist? If so, I'd be interested to know when
you entered and how long ago you were notified.

Thanks,
Jane

Hi Jane,

IMC received my application December 20th 1995, only about two days
after the main field was full. My e-mail inquieries about my place on
the waitinglist have never been answered. No notification yet.
Also their web pages have not been updated in a long time.
I am dissappointed about not getting informed in any way by IMC.

Same here, I was told that I'm first on the waiting list at the end of last
year but I haven't heard anything since. My recent e-mail to ask for
my check and passport picture back hasn't been replied either. They must
be real busy trying to get the race ready.

I dropped in on the Ironman Canada office in Penticton
two weekends ago to talk with the race director.

They are very busy getting stuff ready.  Some of the staff
are putting in 60 and 70 hours a week getting things organized.

I requested  some info about the waitlist so that I could
post it on the Ironman Canada Web site since many people have been
asking about it. ( I manage the Ironman
Canada web site on a volunteer basis )

I know that the waitlist procedure was changed for 1996
due to problems they had in 1995.

Here is part of a message which was passed on to me by
Dave Burtch, the race director:

Quote:
>It is impossible to please or satisfy everyone but one must endeavor to
>satisfy as many as possible without undue hardship to the remainder. In
>previous years, it was very difficult, if not impossible, to have a given
>number of athletes registered on race morning when pre-registering the exact
>number several months before, even though there were 2-300 on a wait list.
>Each July 16th, following a flood of applicants withdrawing at the last
>minute in order to get the partial refund, we would begin to call those on
>the wait list only to find out that only 10 or 12 out of 250 would still be
>available; the others had made other plans.

>For '96, we decided to review the historical drop out rate and found that
>there was a long standing pattern of %age dropouts prior to July 15th and a
>similar pattern for no shows. We adjusted the %ages down to 12% and 7%
>respectively and added this number, based on our target of 1600 on race
>morning, to our registration. Thus, close to 2000 athletes were registered
>by mid-December of '95 for the '96 race. Due to significant pressures from
>athletes wanting to be wait listed just in case, we began a wait list.

>It would be great to be able to accomodate everyone but that is not
>possible.

Based on this, I would say that if you have not been informed
that you have a spot in the race your chances are slim that you
will be able to get one at this point.

Being one of the first on the list, I was quite optimistic to get
in. If they had only mentioned that they changed the procedure.

Thanks for finding out and thanks for managing the web page.
