Cazenovia Triathlon 2010

The Cazenovia Triathlon & Aquabike
Sunday August 15, 2010

Volunteer info is at

We will again offer 2 race distances in 2 disciplines: Sprint & Intermediate / Triathlon & Aquabike (all races are USAT Sanctioned) as well as The Hoffman Rd. Hill climb, special youth rates, Cazenovia College dorm room rentals for Caz Tri racers & guests (just a few minutes walk from both the Village of Caz & the race venue!).

NEW!: To celebrate the 10th Annual Caz Tri, we will also have an Elite Wave Race within the Sprint Tri with special awards & gifts specific to the Elite Wave. The Elite Wave Race is optional entry and intended for the serious competitive triathlete.

Future announcements regarding the Elite Wave, Syracuse Ironman 70.3 Training Groups & Camps, news & other new additions to both Caz Tri Intermediate & Sprint races are forthcoming at .

Syracuse Bicycle will again be leading training rides on the Cazenovia Triathlon bike course this summer! They are starting this Thursday night at 7pm at Lakeside Park and continue every Thursday night until August 12th. They are open to anyone interested. Everyone on the ride must sign a waiver and wear a helmet. It is also suggested that riders have a rear tailight because they’ll be finishing the ride just at dusk.

We look forward to seeing you in Caz August 15, 2010 swimming on flat Cazenovia Lake, biking within view of windmills & Cazenovia & Oneida Lakes, and running through the scenic village & town of Cazenovia.

NOTE: The registration fee for CAZ is scheduled to go up on 6 July 2010

What you might not know about Caz tri
I thought I’d share some facts about Caz Tri that maybe you didn’t know or perhaps forgot.
The 2009 Caz Tri saw 450 registrants over 2 triathlon distances with aquabike and relay opportunities as well. 2009 also saw a field of 20% first time triathletes and a field that was 40% women overall.
Registration for this year’s 2010 Caz Tri is on pace to exceed 500 registrants over the same distances and events as last year. In fact, the Intermediate distance registration has already exceeded 2009 totals ensuring its most competitive field to date.
This year The Caz Tri Intermediate distance race presents a unique opportunity to test yourself 5 weeks out from the Syracuse 70.3 on a course suitably comparable to, as well as geographically close to the 70.3 course. And if you have some out of towners joining you in that training / racing opportunity, they can stay at Caz College with rooms starting at $50 per night.
Also, this year the sprint distance will celebrate its 10th Anniversary with an Open Wave for any athlete (M or F) who elects to compete with & against the more competitive triathletes in the field.

In 2010, notably, Caz Tri’s historic charitable contributions to date will exceed $20,000. Our past charitable efforts have helped to fund everything from art programs in the City of Syracuse to local high school track teams entry & participation in prestigious meets. That is of course in addition to all the internal club programs Caz Tri has funded. Thanks to all the racers & volunteers of the club who’ve helped make that possible. Hopefully you will again, or for the first time, join us at The 10 Annual Cazenovia Triathlon.
BTW, if you are interested in becoming part of the Cazenovia Triathlon Race Committee Next meeting will be Monday 19 July 2010 time and place TBA.

In closing, the CNY Triathlon Club is a volunteer organization operated and led by members of the club and supported by its members and sponsors.
CNY Triathlon Club was formed to bring together people in the Central New York area to strengthen and advance the sport of triathlon; promote the educational pursuit of the triathlon and general physical fitness; represent the sport of triathlon within the community and publish and disseminate information related to the sport of triathlon.

Our mission is to reach beyond ourselves and encourage others by sharing our experiences.

If any club member would like to contribute to our newsletter or help in arranging it each month it would be greatly appreciated. I can be contacted at
