Longhorn again 2008 - becomes a 70.3 race

I hear that Thursday afternoon there will be a formal announcement that the Longhorn triathlon will formally become Longhorn 70.3, and a formal qualifier for the NAS 70.3 World Championships in 2009. It will be interesting to see if for the first year they offer any IM Hawaii slots for 2009 as first year races sometimes can.

At least according to the email I got, theres some form of formal announcement at Jack and Adams at 3.00pm on Thursday.

Hopefully Keith won't drop the Aquabike category, otherwise I guess I've got all year to try to get my running in shape if my knees hold out. It looks like the sprint and Olympic distance races run at Longhorn race w/e have already been moved to Galveston. See
