As I was checking on the events for the STCS and the NCTS on the Setup Events website earlier and noticed a small change. The NCTS changed names and is not the IOSTS, or the Inside-Out Sports Triathlon Series. Glad to notice that Setup is still in charge and I’m really looking forward to this series this year. I’ve heard, not first hand, great things about Inside-Out Sports and I hope this will become a great relationship for everyone. I’ve reproduced the full press release below:
