Interest in a multi-sport user group? (Read 1222 times)


Needs more cowbell!

    I notice that there are already a few multi-sport groups, though most of them are region/race-specific, small, private, or abandoned.  Does anyone else see a need to have a general group for duathletes and triathletes, aside from this cross-training forum?


    I know there are plenty of multi-sport-specific forums on the WWW, but I'm kind of partial to RA and think it might be nice to have something here for existing RA members who have already participated in multi-sport events or who, like me, are contemplating a duathlon or triathlon in the future.

      Do you mean like the Swim Bike Run RA group?

      It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

        Exactly!  I cannot find that in searches, though.  I did searches for multisport, multi sport, and triathlon and that doesn't show in any of those search phrases...just sayin'. Tongue

          I just put keywords into the group description, so now you should be able to find it searching on "triathlon" or "duathlon" or "multisport".  Thanks for the suggestion.

            Very cool.  Its a fine group, not as active as the Swamp, but its good!

              No prob.  I thought there was a larger group than what I was finding, but all of the obvious search terms I tried yielding nothing with more than a small handful of people. Smile

                          But some RA peeps hang out there

                            Oh now.  It's ok to have a life outside of RA.

                             

                             

                            One of the more active groups here is The Masters area.  Many really nice folks, some of which absolutely will NOT venture outside of that group's area.

                             

                            Ah well.

                              I admit to being almost totally out of my element in that forum.  I'm old enough to be there but I can't follow what the numerous (I mean numerous) continuing threads and subgroups are all about.  But maybe I'm just too old to follow.

                                I joined the Master's group briefly in the Spring...when I was looking for replacement runners for a trail relay team and that group was recommended to me to put a shout-out for runners.  Like you, I felt completely lost.  It's a very close-knit group, but there were a LOT of people I had never seen anywhere else on RA.  Like it was some parallel RA dimension!
