So here we go again for TTT-TO 2020 and our first race of the season on March 15th in San Juan on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, a magnificent and unique island and smallest of the Greater Antilles. Add a great climate, friendly people, USD $$ currency and a spirited latin vibe with American like home amenities and you cannot go wrong. Early mornings from 6am people are out jogging, walking, swimming, riding bikes and smiling. This is the reason we keep coming back for TTT-TO. After the devastation from hurricane Maria in 2018 the islanders are slowly rebuilding with federal aid and a lot of can do attitude and generators and still there is much to be done. Visitors help the economy and bring some normalcy I think. We will base our race group TTT-TO at the Caribe Hilton, one of the race hotels and what a beautiful setting for a few days of relaxing and then recovery after a busy and fun race. Of course with the race all over by 3.30pm there is plenty of opportunity to enjoy the beaches, snorkeling and a visit to the Bacardi factory or a drive to the El Junque rain forest for an easy hike, I suggest the next day 🙂 We will have a great post race party as usual!! Depending on how long you plan to stay, the island has a lot to offer the adventure seekers with zip lines, hikes, boat trips, night time snorkels or just a quiet beach and a good book, Puerto Rico has it all. If you like food, good food then the old town of San Juan has great restaurants and bars and our personal tour guide Tony Mercado knows all the best places to eat and “hydrate” 😉
We will keep it relaxed and you can do whatever you feel like, the TTT is mostly about having fun completing the 70.3 in the time limit. AAAAND if anyone needs a relay team partner let us know ASAP.
We will be updating the info as we get closer, so for now follow the guidelines and relax, rest, enjoy and exercise however much you feel it’s all about the VIBE and don’t forget the mantra TTT-TO means training optional. See you all in March.
