Two weeks ago, Chattanooga hosted its "test run" 70.3 before the World Championship race comes to town later this year. 

Jackie Hering (WI) took an impressive 3rd place in the pro field behind winner, Heather Jackson, and Olympian, Sarah True.

On the amateur side, Timex Multisport Team athletes, Bruce Gennari (TN) grabbed 1st place in his age group (M50-54), and Wendy Mader (GA) placed 9th in the W40-44 age group.
