The Musselman Triathlon Festival is a weekend festival of swim-bike-run multi-sport events held in Geneva, NY July 16-17, 2005. The Festival is headquartered in the beautiful Seneca Lake State Park. There are three different races of varying distances, attracting between 800 and 1000 athletes and another 1,000 to 2,500 spectators from all over North America.

1,000 Musselman Compilation CDs will be distributed to all athletes and race volunteers. The compilation will be professionally mastered, designed and replicated. 25 songs will be selected from all submissions and then voted on by athletes, volunteers, community members, fans, etc. (you will be able to promote online voting to your fan base). The top 15 tracks will be included on the CD and select artists will be invited to play at the festival. Food and lodging will be provided.

Performance opportunities include live entertainment on Saturday, July 16 at the Olympic-style Athlete Village on the campuses of Hobart and William Smith Colleges, as well as race day music, July 17, to contribute to the celebratory, party atmosphere through out the day, at the finish line and during our post-race party. And of course we will have live music entertainment along the race course too!

If you've never attended or participated in a triathlon, the "headquarters" of the race is a lively area where the race starts, ends and all athletes "transition" from the swim to the bike to the run. You can expect that each athlete will have an average of two friends and/or family members there to support them during the race. The longest of the races starts with a 1.2 mile swim in Seneca Lake, continues with a 56 mile bike through the scenic Finger Lakes region and finishes with a half marathon (13.1 miles). The race can take anywhere from 4 to 8 hours depending on the athlete, so there is a captive audience of spectators for the entire day.

We accept any upbeat genre, including but not limited to, classic rock, rock, pop, blues, world music, etc. - anything upbeat and inspiring for athletes in the middle of a long endurance event or trying to celebrate a successful finish. No explicit lyrics. JUST ADDED: we're also going to select a bagpipe track for the CD. If you have one or know someone who does let them know how to submit!

This event is in its second year and benefits the Geneva Chapter of the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.
