Valdese Triathlon 2013, Valdese, NC, Wednesday, May 11, 2013

Brad Miller reports that Valdese was a great pool swim with time trial set-up. He started 2nd, 15 seconds back from iDaph team mate, Ryan Madamba, and came out of the water 45 seconds back from him. He lost some time on the bike section when he had to stop and fix the strap on his shoe into the buckle, When arriving into transition Ryan had a 11 second lead, but Brad finally caught him a mile into the 5k.  Between having a cold, his shoe drama, he figures it turned out well and says that it was a fun race that he will do again.

The 2013 Bele Chere 5K Course gets Even Better!

We’ve made a few changes to the 2013 Bele Chere 5K course to improve the race experience!


For starters, we’ve moved the start and finish line, eliminating a 30 foot net climb. You’ll thank us for that when you’re making your final push! Our start/finish is close to pickup and post race activities, allowing  plenty of place for participants and supporters without blocking the road. This will make for an even better experience for all!

Bele Chere 5k Then we made a few other course revisions, we added two turns in a neighborhood by going past Pfifer St, and taking a left on Bartlett St. but removed three turns and a hill in the downtown area by bypassing Ravenscroft Dr., Sawyer Ave., and Church St. Take a look at the map now available, on the Bele Chere 5K page on our iDaph website, and see for yourself!

REGISTER NOW!, if you haven’t already. This could be your last chance to run in the Bele Chere 5K, so don’t miss out!

If you have a smidge of time, and a giving spirit, we could really use your help on race day! Donate 1-2 hours performing easy but critical tasks, email us at events@idaph.net if you would like to give back at the 34th annual Bele Chere race.
