(July 12, 2023) Any athlete would agree that there is no atmosphere quite like race day. Between the excitement of the racers as they get to the starting line, the bustle of activity at the vendor expo, and the enthusiasm of the spectators as they cheer on the competitors, the Alpha Win Hudson Valley Triathlon was full of fantastic energy earlier this month. Participants of all skill levels had the opportunity to race in the 70.3, Olympic, Sprint, or Open distances, as well as the Diamond Mills 5k run at beautiful Fifth Lake on July 1, 2023.
Alpha Win Hudson Valley featured a beautiful swim in spring-fed Fifth Lake in Rosendale, New York, a breathtaking bike ride over the Rosendale Railroad Trestle, and a flat and fast run on the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail. The Half distance in particular experienced a bike course with a loop around the Ashokan Reservoir, the oldest and one of the largest New York City reservoirs in the Catskills.
Alpha Win Hudson Valley was joined by athletes across the tri-state area, and as far south as the Carolinas. With over 20 triathlon clubs and groups in attendance, Alpha Win welcomed back numerous tri-club partners including TriLatino Triathlon Club, GORILLAS, FDNY Triathlon Team, Capital District Triathlon Club, Brooklyn Triathlon Club, and Beacon Endurance.
The triathlon club area overlooked the finish line, and nearly a dozen clubs set up tents and seating areas to cheer on their teams as they finished. TriLatino, FDNY Triathlon, and GORILLAS were among those with huge turnout at the event. “At the heart of our mission is community. The Alpha Win-Hudson Valley Triathlon feels like an extension of our Club. TriLatino’s mission is to open doors for all athletes within the endurance race space and this is what we experience every year that we join you. Everyone is celebrated and leaves with a feeling of accomplishment and joy. We can’t wait to return next year,” said Vice President of TriLatino Donna Somerville. “Fun local race with challenging bike course and beautiful trail run. Nice to see so many tri clubs out on course,” said FDNY Captain David Guilford. “It’s always an amazing day when you compete with Alpha Win!” said Jason Diaz of the GORILLAS. “Its landscape, competitors and race staff folks from all around are one word, beautiful! This is why us GORILLAS have adopted this Kingston event as our Family Team event every year!”
After the race, athletes (21 and over) were treated to a complimentary beer from the Keegan Ales Beer Garden and enjoyed post-race pasta courtesy of BLACKBARN Hudson Valley. Athletes were invited to visit the Speed Hound recovery tent to try out their Pro Recovery System, and the overall male and female winners of each distance were awarded a Pro Percussion Gun courtesy of Speed Hound as well.
