Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Triathlon Conference Announces 2012-13 Race Series
On Monday, the Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Triathlon Conference (MACTC) announced its 2012-13 race series. The five-race series will begin in Williamsburg, Virginia on September 8th at Setup Events’ Patriots Sprint and conclude on October 7th at Rev3 Half Full (www.halffulltri.org) in Ellicott City, Maryland.
“We are very proud to host the young men and women of the MACTC at this year’s Half Full Triathlon”, stated Brian Satola, Rev3 Half Full Triathlon Race Director. “This relationship is very important to us at the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults (UCF), as it will offer a unique opportunity for these student athletes to compete in an event that will support those in their peer group who are affected by cancer.”
MACTC athletes will be given the unique opportunity to rack alongside the professional triathletes at Rev3 Half Full and to compete against the best in the sport. Already announced for the race are Colorado Springs-based Brian Fleischmann and Nicole Kelleher, who won the 2010 USAT Collegiate Nationals racing for the University of Virginia and was also a recipient of a UCF scholarship.
The 2012-13 MACTC series will serve as qualification for the 2013 Collegiate Nationals in April. Teams will compete in at least two series races and the MACTC Championship at Rev3 Half Full in order to earn Nationals slots.
In 2012, the U.S. Naval Academy’s men and the University of Virginia’s women were the conference’s top-qualifying teams. Navy’s Clayton Petty and Duke’s Chelsea Koglmeier were the top-performing individuals, each winning the 2011 MACTC Championship on October 1st at Giant Acorn International.
