In 2015, we began organizing our annual team race for Team TBT. Our team lives and races across the country, and around the world, and after five years of never really getting to know one another, we really wanted an opportunity to bring them all together once a year for fun and a little friendly competition. So far we’ve raced IRONMAN® 70.3 Puerto Rico, IRONMAN® 70.3 Boulder, IRONMAN® 70.3 Victoria and for 2018, we chose IRONMAN® 70.3® St. George in Utah.

On May 5th, Team TBT had 17 individuals and one relay team toed the start line with the rest of the competitors in St. George, UT. Following a brisk swim in the Sand Hollow Reservoir, they headed out on the scenic, but challenging, bike course, before entering St. George’s historic town square to begin the run.

When the dust settled, St. George was a ton of fun, and an incredibly successful race. Not only did we have five team members qualify for IRONMAN® 70.3® World Championships (including our Founder, Marc Lauzon), but the team also won the IRONMAN® TriClub Program Division V championship.

Aside from racing, the team got to enjoy the sights, sounds, and tastes of St. George. We even capped the weekend off with a team party filled with pizza, beer, and ice cream following the race.
