Vineman, Inc. manages two major events each year. The first, Ironman 70.3, is the go-to race for folks looking to qualify for the Ironman World Championship 70.3 at Lake Las Vegas. This race usually sells out in three hours, and in 2011 saw 2300 participants. Along with age-group participants, the 70.3 is where you’ll find professional triathlon competitors. These are top-caliber athletes, and Vineman’s 70.3 had one of the best fields in the series last year.
Vineman’s second event (two weeks later) is actually four events: an Ironman distance triathlon, called Full Vineman; an all-women’s Half Ironman distance triathlon, called Barb’s Race; and two Aquabike events – a full and a ½ Vineman that consist of a swim and bike portion only. About 2200 athletes compete on that day. These two weekends keep Vineman, Inc. busy year round, according to Amy Latourette, the organization’s registration coordinator, who was kind enough to spend some time with us recently to discuss their work and how Active Network has helped.
