PSST: By The Numbers


Posted by Coach Mark


Our goal when we started the Portofino Sunset Tri Series back in 2011 was to offer a Super-Sprint Triathlon that was friendly and inviting to first-time triathletes.  We knew we would attract faster and more seasoned triathletes, but the target was the “new” guy or gal.  With that in mind, we opted NOT to offer prizes for placing but rather random drawings for participants of goodies provided by sponsors.  And we recruited volunteers who were triathletes.  It was a success in 2011 and an even bigger success in 2012.

The Portofino Sunset Tri series by Bikes Plus Stats:



Number of scheduled races: 9
Number of canceled races due to weather: 2
Number of registered participants: 360
Number of registered males: 208
Number of registered females: 168
Number of registered FIST-TIME participants: 106
Oldest registered participant: 70
Youngest registered participant 12
Number of States represented: 18
Quickest time of the year: 32:39
Longest time of the year: 1:36:49
Quickest relay time: 30:24
Number of races Matt Salvatore volunteered for: 9

We appreciate our presenting sponsor, Bikes Plus, as well as Rudy Project, Sacred Heart Sports Care, USAF Special Ops Command, and Envie. We were pleased to support the Southern Youth Sports Association as well.

Thank you to all our athletes, volunteers and sponsors.  2013 is going to be even better!
