USAT National Challenge Competition (NCC)
Jan 1, 2019 - Jan 8, 2019
It is that time of year again. Registration will open December 1st for the USAT National Challenge Competition!
For those unfamiliar with the challenge, this is a friendly competition among national triathlon clubs during the months of December, January and February. Each month has a focus. We start in December with swimming, followed in January with biking and February with running. Of course, you can still do all three disciplines during each month and log your miles. They are just weighted differently according to the month’s focus.
Starting THIS Saturday, December 1, 2018, if you are a current USAT member, go to the USAT NCC site and follow the registration link to join the Triathlon Club of San Diego’s NCC 2018-2019. As we are competing against ALL of the triathlon clubs in the country, we would ask you to please only sign up if you are motivated to log at least ONE swim/bike/run workout every single week between December 1st and February 28th.
Our volunteer *motivators* are in place. Look for fun workouts and challenges along the way.
Tracy Cohen-Peranteau and Nicol Hodges will be leading this challenge and we will do our best to inspire/motivate/challenge/encourage you to stay healthy and fit for your upcoming 2019 triathlon season!
12/4/18 NCC update:
The USAT IT department is working on the glitches.
They hope to have the NCC page up by the end of today
Abby (the USAT rep for NCC) will personally contact all of the club administrators as soon as the site is up and working – and we will then let you all know.
Thank you for your patience!
GO, TRI CLUB!
12/6/18 NCC update:
On Dec. 1, USA Triathlon experienced server outages that affected the National Challenge Competition (NCC) website, along with several other USAT pages. Over the past few days, the team has worked to restore the pages that were down. However, the NCC website is still being affected and not allowing clubs or members to register for the program. Due to the inability to join the competition, we have decided to adjust the date of the competition to Jan. 1 – March 31. Along with the date change, we are adjusting the month focus order to Run, Bike, Swim. The rules and awards will remain the same, but the overall program will shift back one month. Clubs will be notified as soon as registration is available for the competition.
USA Triathlon thanks you for your understanding as we address the difficulties with the website. We have identified the root cause of the issue and we are actively fixing these issues to ensure a better user experience.
Once again, we will be sending out an email as soon as registration is open and miles can be logged starting Jan. 1. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. Again, we sincerely apologize for the system issues and we hope this additional time will allow for a higher quality product.
