Ironman Meet Up
If you have an Iron distance race on your calendar this year, we'd like to toast your hard work and determination at an "Ironman Meet-up" at Northwest Tri & Bike. Join us for drinks and appetizers as the RTB staff and coaches take a little time to answer questions and offer encouragement as your race gets closer...and closer.........and closer! Because this evening is intended to be social as well as informational, there will be plenty of time to meet up with other athletes to compare notes and race-day strategies in this informal, mostly sweat-free gathering. The NWTB staff will be on hand as well to answer any equipment or gear questions or help you with any shopping needs you might have. Anyone welcome. And a few lucky people will win some RTB gift cards!
Date: Thursday, June 4
Location: Northwest Tri and Bike
