First 500 slots open in each distance

SAUGERTIES, NY (January 16, 2013) After two years of swim, bike, run successes, the HITS Championship is in Palm Springs, CA to stay. HITS, Inc. recently announced that the event will return to Lake Cahuilla Park again for its year-end event Dec. 7-8, 2013.

"We love this location and it is the perfect site for our Championship," said race director Mark H. Wilson. "It has been so awesome to see HITS Triathlon Series evolve and grow during 2012 and we are really excited about our 2013 race schedule."

Claimed as the crown jewel of the HITS Triathlon Series, the HITS Championship in Palm Springs offers beautiful vistas in a dry and sunny climate perfect conditions for a December triathlon. The courses are flat, fast and awesomely scenic!

In 2013, HITS will again offer five distances at the Championship Open, Sprint, Olympic, Half and Full and registration is currently open to only the first 500 athletes in each distance. After 500, athletes will be required to qualify for a slot. Qualifying specifications will be announced when each distance reaches 500 athletes.
