2018 CCTTT Season - 13 June - 1 August!

posted Jun 5, 2018, 6:45 PM by Cindy Regnante   [ updated Jun 28, 2018, 3:26 PM by Jay R Powell ]

Good Evening TriFury!

We finally have all the details in place, and we are excited to formally announce the 2013 Claire Cloutier Try the Tri Season! Our core CCTTT group has implemented some changes this year, which we are sure you will like.

First, Laura has been working with TriFury's Club Express account to better support CCTTT and SLTTT. This means you can now register in advance, and pay with a credit card, and not worry about hitting the ATM or locating the checkbook before CCTTT. Information and sign-up can be seen at:

Second, Laura and Jamie have also implemented volunteer sign-up through Club Express. This means you can sign up for a position in advance, see what positions are available, sign up yourself and a friend for a particular spot, and other details. Jamie will be sending out more details on volunteering before the first race.

Third, we are going back to the fun tradition of participating with some of our 'sister' clubs in the area. June 20th we will host Sole Sisters, GLRR on July 18th, and MVS on July 25th. So if you know anyone in any of those clubs who might like to 'Try a Tri', please let them know and bring them on down!

Fourth, back by popular demand, is Superhero Night on July 11. Come dressed as your favorite superhero, either racing or volunteering, and join in the fun! (Please, for safety concerns no capes.)

Finally, yes, we will have a TriFury Kids' race this year. Details on the kids race will be sent out to members through Club Express, so if you haven't renewed for 2018, now would be a great time. Renewal can be done through Club Express, and when done, you will have access to all the additional information, details, and specials available to members.

The 2018 CCTTT series will be held every Wednesday evening, with the race starting at 6:30, with the first race on 13 June and the last race on 1 August. As July 4th falls on a Wednesday this year, will not be holding one on the 4th. 

We're all looking forward to a great 2018 CCTTT series! We hope to see you out there!

For the 2018 CCTTT organizers,

Announcing TriFury's new Silver Lake Try The Tri

posted Jun 23, 2017, 1:55 PM by Cindy Regnante

We are extremely excited to announce the inaugural TriFury Silver Lake Try the Tri Triathlon in Wilmington, MA. This 400 yard swim, 12 mile bike, 2 mile run triathlon will be held on Saturday July 8th, 2017 at 7:30AM and is open to all TriFury members. Entry fee is $20, and $30 for first time non-member guests.

Similar to the highly successful Claire Cloutier Try the Tri held weekly on Wednesday evenings in Tyngsboro, this unique event is geared towards both novice beginners and those more experienced looking for a practice "race".  Note:  the open water swim in beautiful Silver Lake will have a beginners buoy, giving you a chance to shorten the swim if so desired.  You can also chose to make it a duathon (bike/run only) or aquabike (swim/bike only).  There is no preregistration, on site registration only.  Rain date is Sunday July 9th. 

The event is limited to 25 participants.  Additional event information and details including course maps will be released once finalized. 

Any questions, please email Dave Tyler at or Kristen Kelley at

We need your help in selecting those members who are worthy of receiving an award, in a club so large as TriFury, it would be easy to miss a member who should be recognized.

The TriFury board of directors will make the final choices. Please send your nominations to me at do not reply to all.
