Description:

Announcing The Eastern Shore 140 Ultra Triathlon

Endurance athletes looking for a new challenge next year will certainly want to add the newly announced Eastern Shore 140 Ultra Triathlon to their calendar. The inaugural edition of the race is scheduled to take place in and around Cape Charles, Virginia on September 7, 2013.

The ES 140 course will feature a 2.4 mile swim on Chesapeake Bay, followed by a 112 mile bike stage, which is immediately followed by 26.2 mile run. The race will get underway from the Cape Charles Beach, where competitors will first complete a double loop swim on the bay before taking their bikes out onto a out-and-back course along scenic and rolling country roads. Finally, they'll complete their very long day with a marathon through the downtown streets of Cape Charles.

The just launched ES 140 website contains much more information about the event, including details on the course, a helpful FAQ and a registration form for athletes who want to compete. The site just went live yesterday however, so other things like the race schedule, competitor list and volunteer info will be filled in over time.

The race director for this event is Don Mann, who is well known for putting on great events that also happen to be rather tough. In addition to organizing the infamous Beast of the East adventure races and numerous other triathlons, Don was also responsible for Primal Quest Utah, Montana and Badlands. As an experienced endurance athlete himself, Don knows how to create a challenging course that will test competitors while still finding a way to remain fun to race on.

If you're up for a new challenge for next year, than start planning for the ES 140 now. September, 2013 may seem like a long way off at the moment, but you'll need all of that time to train for this epic event.

Dear ES 140 Ultra TRI registered athlete,

It is with great sadness that I must inform you that we have decided to cancel the 2013 ES 140 Ultra Triathlon.

The reason we have cancelled the ES 140 is because on Sept. 21st 2013, the ChesapeakeMan is scheduled to take place. We do not want to place another similar event so close to the date of an existing and very successful event. I called the Kari Ebeling at Chesapeake Man to confirm their dates for 2013. Kari told me that they do plan on producing the 140.6 event in 2013 and 2014. I told Kari that we wish her and all of their events continued success and that we would highly recommend that our registered athletes and sponsors consider the ChesapeakeMan triathlon. The link is below.

Please let us know where to send your refund, and we wish you good luck in the future with all of your training and racing.
All my Best,

Don Mann
