I just found out that Sean McGuire was also at Ironman 70.3 Oceanside this year. I haven’t heard anything about his race yet, but I managed to snag his splits and some pictures.

Stephen Payne took on his second long course event at Ironman 70.3 Oceanside. It seems that he has worked those pesky nutrition issues that he had in the past, and his race report made it sound like it was a good time. Congrats Stephen!

The Corvallis Aquatic Team is hosting the Oregon Masters Swimming Championships this year at Osborn Aquatic Center. Both groups have provided volunteers and participants for our event, the Heart of the Valley Triathlon & Duathlon, so it seems fitting that we return the favor.

The event is happening April 10-12 which is a few weeks away. Sign up now to make sure it ends up on your calendar. This is important, so do not hesitate or procrastinate. Instructions to register for a volunteer position are as follows.

  1. Visit the invitation page on VolunteerSpot.
  2. Enter your email address. You do not need to register an account. Simply provide an e-mail address*
  3. Choose your spots. VolunteerSpot will send you an automated confirmation and reminders.

VolunteerSpot does not share your email address with anyone. If you prefer not to use your email address, please contact Sue Phillips via e-mail, and she can sign you up manually.

One of our sponsors, the Osborn Aquatic Center is putting on the Turkey Trot on Thursday, November 27th (Thanksgiving Day) and is looking for volunteers to help out with the event.

If you’re available to help out, either at packet pickup the day before or at the event on race day, your help would be greatly appreciated. Contact information for volunteers is available on the event website here.

As discussed at the meeting on Tuesday, we’re now hosting a group trail run every Sunday morning at 8am.

For the first few weeks we plan to meet at the Intensive Management Trailhead in the Peavy Arboretum. Eventually, we plan to move around to some of the other trails in the area.

We are aware that there are concerns about making group workouts accessible to everyone. The goal here is to get everyone outside and active rather than to go fast. Pacing is expected to be easy to moderate, and duration is expected to be about an hour. Both are subject to change based on who shows up and the needs of the group.

So if you are trying to find a way to keep active during the outseason or maybe just looking for a way to interact with other humans outside of home and work, a nice trail run with company might be the answer. Come join us!


We’re meeting a little early over at Peak Sports to get a quick overview of bike maintenance tips. Afterward, we’ll move over to Laughing Planet for some tasty burritos and discussion on the Heart of the Valley race we put on last month as well as some talk about our race seasons.

See you there.
