USAT Selects Four Score This!!! Events for 2014 as Paratriathlon Friendly
Orchard Park, NY(April 9, 2014) - Score This!!!, Inc., based out of Western New York, has had multiple races recognized by USA Triathlon as Paratriathlon friendly. The Score This!!! Multisport Series will now offer this exciting new category at races located in both Western and Central New York.
“Score This!!! is proud to have been selected by USAT as Paratriathlon friendly. Over the past several years we have had a large amount of athletes reach out to us via email to see if our events can accommodate athletes with physical disabilities,” states Richard Clark one of several Score This!!! race directors. “Knowing this would be a great opportunity for athletes, we researched what it would take to allow paratriathletes in categories 1-6 to have the ability to compete head to head at our multiple events.” The 2014 events that will be recognized as Paratriathlon friendly are ECC Kats Triathlon - May 18th, Strassburg Sock Keuka Lake Triathlon presented by Towpath Bike – June 8th, PAIN in the Alleganies – June 22nd, and the Riverside Federal Credit Union Summer Sizzler Triathlon – August 9th.

Ami Cole USAT Official and Paratriathlon Committee Member stated, “In recent years Rich Clark and Score This!!! have accommodated para athletes in our community. This year they have taken paratriathlon to a new level for all para athletes by sanctioning events locally through USAT to be Paratriathlon friendly. This will allow disabled multi-sport athletes to safely compete at Score This!!! events in our area with designated classification, race course structure and volunteers to assist the disabled athletes. This is a huge undertaking for Rich and his crew and I'd like to say thank you for all you are doing for the para community. It would be great to see our local clubs reach out to our para athletes and follow the lead Score This!!! has taken.”
