Races

2017 Plans

Prior to last season’s Ironman World Championships in Kona, I’d really been feeling the lure of the trails, due largely to the fact that there are so many awesome races out there that just didn’t exist “back in the day”… That draw has been amplified by many off-season runs in Fairmount Park, so I’m going to add a few more trail events into my schedule to see how everything goes, starting with my annual season opener, the HAT 50K in March. With that said, I’m as psyched as ever to be a part of the Snapple Triathlon Pro/Elite Team squad and have some primary targets in mind, including

  • defending my AG title at the Long Course Duathlon Nationals
  • getting back on the podium at my hometown race (i.e. no screw ups or 30 minute pit stops dealing with flats!)
  • qualifying for Ironman 70.3 World Championships, and
  • having a great race at 70.3 Worlds in Chattanooga

Career Highlights

There’s a nice narrative bio on the Snapple Tri Team website that provides a little history of my 30+ year Ultrarunning and Triathlon career. Check it out here: Snapple Triathlon National Pro/Elite Athlete Barry Lewis.
