Tucson named No. 2 place for triathlete training

My brother sent me this link today from the Arizona Daily Star

Triathlete Magazine has named the Old Pueblo the second-best location in the world for triathlon training.

The first was Hawaii. Falling behind Tucson were San Diego, Aukland, New Zealand and Clermont, Fla.

Triathlons include swimming, cycling and running.

Gates Pass and Mount Lemmon were mentioned in the article as particularly good places to work out.

The magazine also offered praise to the Metropolitan Tucson Convention & Visitors Bureau for its efforts to attract amateur athletes to the city.

“Perhaps the best part about Tucson is that the locals want you to come,” the article said, mentioning that the visitors bureau could help plan for large group trips.
