2011 Date Set for Skeese Greets Women's Tri

The Fifth Annual Skeese Greets Women's Triathlon is scheduled for Mother's Day, May 8th, 2011. The 300 meter swim, 11 mile bike and 2 mile run has taken place at the Texas Ski Ranch in New Braunfels, Texas every year, but the date has been moved around during the month of May. This will be the first time the triathlon takes place on Mother's Day.

"We think it's a good fit for that weekend," explains director Stacy Keese. "It's a women's event and most triatlete women don't want to sit around on Mother's Day with breakfast in bed. They want to be active and have fun. They can do that at this event with their family cheering them on. It will be a special day for them."

The Skeese Greets Women's Tri is currently part of the Jack and Adam's Texas Tri Series which includes five other triathlons. Skeese Greets along with Jack and Adam's/High Five Events has made this date change to maximize the schedule of events in and around Austin. With the inclusion and creation of new events for 2011, this was a necessary step to accommodate the growing list. The following are the tentative 2011 dates for the other Texas Tri Series events: The Rookie Tri (April 17, 2011), Couples Tri (July 10, 2011), Jack's Generic Tri (August 7, 2011) and The Austin Tri (Labor Day).
