American Matt Reed, a 2008 Olympian, has announced that he will be competing alongside fellow former American Olympian Andy Potts and other pros in next month’s PHLY Cup at the 2013 TriRock Philadelphia Triathlon with title sponsor Johnson and Johnson.
Reed has competed in Philadelphia in the past and is happy to be returning in 2013.
“I’m excited to race Trirock Philly,” Reed tells Triathlete.com. “It’s a great city; one that really embraces endurance sports. The park is an awesome venue for a triathlon. With this being Fuji’s hometown I’m excited to race the new Norcom Straight on this course. If you know me, you know I would hate to miss such a fun race.”
Reed and the other professionals will be competing in the Olympic-distance race (1.5K swim, 40K bike and 10K run) for their share of a $25,000 prize purse as part of the recently announced PHLY Cup.
A sprint race will take place on Saturday, June 22, followed by the Olympic-distance race on Sunday, June 23. To register or learn more about the race, visit Trirock.competitor.com/Philadelphia. TriRock Philadelphia is owned by Triathlete.com’s parent company, Competitor Group.
