Moment Sporting Events Sets Date for 2010 San Diego Triathlon Classic

Race Date Set for Sept 18, 2010, Registration Available Online

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - February 25, 2010) - Moment Sporting Events has just announced the date--September 18, 2010---for the San Diego Triathlon Classic. The race, San Diego's original USAT sanctioned Olympic triathlon, is now open for registration (www.sandiegotriathlonclassic.com).

"The San Diego Triathlon Classic has gained recognition for its spectator-friendly course that winds through some of San Diego's most precious historic landmarks," said JT Lyons, president of Moment Sporting Events. "The scenic, yet challenging nature of this premier event has attracted those that simply enjoy the fun and purity of the sport as well as numerous top age groupers and elite triathletes."

Lyons added that the company moved the event from its original mid-October date to mid-September to allow those competing at the Ford Ironman World Championships to have one more race option "a final tune-up" before heading off to Hawaii.

The San Diego Triathlon Classic will begin and end on the water's edge at Liberty Station in the newly renovated historic NTC Park. The 1.5K calm water swim is in a protected estuary of San Diego bay. The bike course (40k) travels through Cabrillo National Park, enjoying spectacular views of Mexico, downtown San Diego and the Pacific. The two-loop, fast and flat, 10k run winds along the waterfront in NTC Park, passing the USS recruit.

"We created the San Diego Triathlon Classic course with both the athlete and the spectator in mind," said Lyons. "All can enjoy the beautiful views of the downtown skyline, historic landmarks and the San Diego Bay. There is a children's playground, additional park space and shopping just steps away from the start/finish area."

Race features include participant t-shirts, a unique finisher medal, goodie bags, five-split timing, gourmet post-race food and a microbrew garden. The travel friendly San Diego Triathlon Classic is minutes from the San Diego International Airport. Many restaurants are within walking distance and hotels are just a step away from the start/finish line.

The public is encouraged to watch the race and attend the free two-day Fitness expo Friday, September 17th and Saturday September 18th. The expo will showcase the finest in triathlon-related coaching, nutrition, bicycles, wheels, apparel, and more.

Interested race participants are encouraged to register early as space is limited. To register online, or for more information, including photos and accolades from last year's race, visit: www.sandiegotriathlonclassic.com.
