IRONMAN Full Triathlon

May 12, 2018

About this Race

The new IRONMAN Santa Rosa offers athletes the same high-quality event they’ve come to know and love in the heart of Sonoma County, with winding roads dotted with vineyards and world-class accommodation. For past race results from IRONMAN Vineman, please visit the event page.

Staged in beautiful Sonoma County and traversing through quaint communities like Geyersville and Healdsburg, IRONMAN Santa Rosa draws not only triathletes, but their wine and food loving family and support crews back every year. The event is a ticket into the heart of the world-famous wine regions of the Napa and Sonoma valleys, and once you’re there, you won’t want to leave. There are B&Bs and boutique hotel options to suit every budget, as well as thousands of wineries, craft breweries, and farm-to-table restaurants for pre-race fueling and post-race celebrations. The race also offers a springboard for vacation itineraries including the San Francisco Bay Area, Santa Cruz mountains, and coastal redwood forests.

The split transition race begins at Lake Sonoma, nestled in the beautiful mountains of Northern California. The 2.4-mile swim is a single loop taking place in calm, clean Lake Sonoma. Athletes will transition to their bikes, setting out on the 112-mile course featuring gentle rollers as they ride through famous wine country and quaint towns. The City of Santa Rosa hosts transition two where athletes will begin a tree-lined, two-loop marathon along the Santa Rosa Creek trail. The finish line will take place at the new Courthouse Square park ideally located in downtown in Santa Rosa where great food and wine can be enjoyed by all spectators.  …more

Tour de Organics Radio Support @ Sebastopol Community Cultural Center
Aug 19 @ 7:00 AM – 5:00 PM

(Cancelled for 2018)

The Tour D’ Organics is a unique bike ride event in the western county, divided up into four routes of 16, 35, 65, and 100 miles.  7 Rest stops are located at organics farms and businesses along the routes. http://tourdorganics.com/rest-stops.html We are looking for radio operators to staff the rest stops.  Nice cushy, low key duty. Good food, shade, what else could you ask for. This year, the Tour will be organizing the SAGs (registering, assigning times, routes etc.)  If you are interested in being a Radio SAG, please sign up both here AND on the Tour’s volunteer webpage. http://tourdorganics.com/volunteer.html This will be a repeater event.  Rest stops 1, 5, 6 & 7 should be an easy hop for an HT. Rest stops 2, 3 & 4 and Radio SAGS would be better served using a mobile rig.  We would like as many Radio Sags to be APRS equiped  as possible. Route maps can be found online at http://tourdorganics.com/routes.html

Radio Hams are needed for Rest stops, and Radio SAGS.  Signup coming soon.

Oct 21 @ 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Cancelled – local JOTA activities with the Boy Scouts have been cancelled this year due to recent fires.

The Jamboree-on-the-Air, or JOTA, is an annual Scouting event that uses amateur radio to link Scouts around the world, around the nation, and in your own community. Held on the third full weekend of October each year, this worldwide jamboree requires no travel, other than to a nearby radio amateur’s ham shack.

All inquires should be directed to Dave Kraybill.
