NATIONAL CITY TRIATHLON NAMED TRIATHLON FEDERATION/USA NATIONAL PROFESSIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

 CLEVELAND, Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- National City Corporation (NYSE: NCC) today announced that its seventh annual National City Triathlon has been selected to host the Triathlon Federation/USA National Professional Championship on Sunday, Aug. 8, 1993.
 Over 60 top professional triathletes from around the world are expected to compete in the BasiComputer Triathlon of Champions criterium-style event for a purse of $35,000. The top six male and top six female triathletes from this national championship will go on to represent the United States at the ITU World Championship in Manchester, England on Aug. 22, 1993.
 The National City Triathlon is the only triathlon that has hosted a national championship for four consecutive years. Last year, National City hosted the USA National Amateur Championship, drawing over 1,600 top amateurs from across the country. In both 1990 and 1991, National City hosted the National Professional Championship which drew top professionals in the sport to Cleveland to compete.
 The 1993 National City Triathlon is comprised of four separate events: The BasiComputer Triathlon of Champions; the National City Amateur Competition; the IBM Corporate Relay Challenge; and the second annual Cleveland Junior Triathlon.
 The BasiComputer Triathlon of Champions broke new ground in the triathlon world at last year's National City Triathlon by featuring a unique and challenging criterium course with distances of 1.5k swim, 40k cycle, and 10k run. This year's event will mark the first time that a national professional championship will be held on a criterium course. Spectators will have an opportunity to watch the pros as they complete 20 laps of a 1.5 mile course (16 laps on the cycle portion, four laps on the run portion) following the swim leg in Lake Erie at Cleveland's North Coast Harbor.
 Both the Amateur Competition and the Corporate Relay Challenge will follow an Olympic distance course that begins with a swim at the North Coast Harbor, followed by a scenic cycle course through Cleveland and surrounding suburbs and a run course on major downtown streets. The Cleveland Junior Triathlon, which drew over 75 participants last year, will be held on Saturday, August 7, 1993 at Cleveland's Edgewater Park along Lake Erie.
 Jack Caress, president of Pacific Sports Management headquartered in California, is directing the National City Triathlon for the seventh consecutive year.
 National City Corporation is a $29 billion diversified financial services company headquartered in Cleveland. National City operates banks and other financial service subsidiaries principally in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana.
