First Annual Pelican Point Triathlon
June 30, 2001
7:00 a.m.
.33 mile swim,  19.1 mile bike,  3.1 mile run

Hi!  I am writing to inform you of the First Annual Pelican Point Triathlon
to be held 10 miles south of Fairhope, Alabama. The race will be held on
June
30, 2001, starting at 7:00 AM. It will include a .33 mi swim, 19.1 mi bike,
and 3.1 mi run. If you aren't a swimmer, you could do a relay with a friend
who is!! Contact Chris at 334-344-3245 to get the details on the relay
option.

The race will take place at the Pelican Point Grill at the end of CR-1 off
Hwy 98. This is on the Southeast corner of Mobile Bay near the mouth of
Weeks
Bay. The roads are pristine, newly paved, and really scenic, and the water
is
pretty nice and flat in that part of the bay. We are putting on the race to
help promote triathlons in the area and to generate more interest in the
sport. If this race is deemed a success by the participants we will probably
put on another event this fall. We'd really appreciate your support and
would
love to see you at the race! We recently got our host hotel, the Holiday Inn
Express, to give a discount if you mention the triathlon. We hope to put on
a
great event with tons of prizes, cash, and cool awards. Our event has a
comprehensive web site with all the details laid out along with all the
forms
and registration info. You can find this at:

You can also register online at www.active.com
Flyers are available for download at the web site as well as the
registration
forms and the waiver.

      Thanks again for your support and we hope to see you on race day!
Please feel free to forward this email to whomever you think might be
interested in the race! If you have any questions let me know. Thanks again!
