2011 is a HUGE year for 10DL. First of all, thank you for all of your support in 2010. The North American event has been a long time coming and it will finally happen in 2011. Stay tuned for final details. One of the cool aspects of the course we’ve chosen is that it starts at the exact Latitude that we finished off in Europe. The European event wrapped up south of Paris at the 48th latitude. North America will begin at the 48th Latitude in Washington state and culminate in the 10-mile “Prison to Prison” open water swim from San Quentin to Alcatraz in the San Francisco Bay.
In the coming days we’ll be introducing our growing list of new and continuing business partners. We couldn’t exist without the help of these sponsors. The fact that we’ve had so many new companies agree to join forces with us as well as our existing sponsors that have all increased their participation in 10DL, is a humbling and exciting statement that we’re very proud to make.
Goals for 2011:
1. 10 Degrees Latitude North America – 1000+ mile multisport event from Washington to northern California
2. Deer Creek Challenge – slated as the toughest century ride in the North America
3. Summit of Mt. Evans – America’s highest road (the final 27 miles are the easiest!)
4. Summit of Long’s Peak – For Colorado mountain climbers, this is one of the toughest 14,000ft ascents in the Rocky Mountains.
5. Various local triathlons – let’s see what the season has in store!
