Last weekend proved to be quite the homecoming for HITS Triathlon Series. After six months on the road, HITS turned to its own backyard for a weekend of racing in Hunter Mountain, New York. We welcomed over 700 athletes to the gorgeous, yet challenging terrain of New York State and hope that HITS Hunter Mountain left its mark as a race to remember and a course to conquer.
“This was my favorite HITS course so far this year,” said Deborah Battaglia of Salt Lake City, Utah who collected her seventh consecutive HITS Full distance win in Hunter Mountain.

Here’s a look at the weekend as told by ©ESI Photography, and HITS Staff:
After christening Hunter Mountain as an undiscovered triathlon hot-spot, HITS Triathlon Series will travel to the home of the sport itself and reintroduce the Full distance race to Colorado. HITS will be racing in Sterling, Colorado July 28-29. Until next year, cheers New York.
