Focus Series


2022 FOCUS RACE PROGRAM
To encourage our members’ participation in local races and to support the race organizers who support us through donations and discounted registrations, we are announcing our 2rd Annual Focus Race Program for the 2022 Multisport Season (should be our 4th but you know….) To qualify for year-end recognition, you need to participate in a total of five races from the list below. You do not need to podium–just be there to represent the Club. You receive points for either racing OR volunteering. You need to be a race participant or volunteer in at least two FSS races and two Trivium races. Those who qualify in the 2022 Focus Race Program will receive commemorative swag.
