Last Friday's Olympic Mixed Relay Triathlon race was exciting! Being able to watch the race from the Olympic and Paralympic Museum was the perfect backdrop (stunning too). Having Renee Tomlin and Andy Potts there to give us live insights and predictions while the race was unfolding was super insightful. What could be better than that? Getting to have a private follow up discussion with pro triathlete, Renee Tomlin! She's going to break down the race and give some super cool in sights.

Interview with Renee Tomlin
Renée Tomlin is a four-time NCAA All-American in track & field and cross country at Georgetown University, and she was a 2011 NCAA Women of the Year honoree. She was introduced to triathlon through the USA Triathlon Collegiate Recruitment Program. Tomlin says her favorite parts of triathlon are the transitions because they “require athleticism, tenacity, and explosive response all while remaining calm, loose and focused.” Tomlin endured a stress fracture in her foot in 2018 and came back to win the 2019 Sarasota-Bradenton ITU Triathlon World Cup. Her time recovering was spent taking the time to focus on her mindset and learning how to take care of her body properly in order to stay in the sport.

Message from Julie Coleman, Race Director
We’re so excited to be back for the 19th year of the IRONMAN 70.3 Boulder event!
Do you have spectators coming with you? While you’re racing on Saturday, they can cool off in the swim area on the beach between 10:30am and 5pm. There will also be kayaks and SUPs there for them to play around on. The beach and swim area will also be open during our Expo Hours on Thursday and Friday.
On race day, a large section of the beach turns into a picnic lunch option for athletes and spectators, food trucks, as well as a beer garden. Concessions will also be available on race morning in the Athlete Check-in tent in Expo.
