The main course of the AlbanyTri is for participants ages 9 and up. This is a standard “super sprint” distance triathlon consisting of:
400 meter (0.25 mile) pool swim in your own split lane followed by
10 km (6.2 mile) bike ride (11 laps around the Memorial Park block) and then
3 km (1.9 mile) run (4 laps around the block)
We also have a “Super youth” division for kidsages 5-8 who compete on a mini version of the course:
25 yard swim(1 length)
0.5 mile bike(1-lap)
0.25 mile run(half-lap around park)
All registrants get a technical t-shirt. Accurate and timely results are provided by chip timing. Post-race festivities include healthy food, free massages, awards, preliminary race results, and lots of local comaraderie. Packet pick-up will be available the Saturday before the race as well as on race day.

The Albany community triathlon (AlbanyTri.com) is a fundraiser for the Albany Athletics Boosters — raising funds for both high school & middle school athletic programs. Starting in 2008 on the centennial of the City of Albany, CA, the AlbanyTri has been held annually except for 2010 & 2011 when the pool underwent a major renovation. The triathlon aims to promote fitness in the community and showcase just how fun a multisport event can be!
The main AlbanyTri super sprint course is open to everyone ages 9 and up, especially those who’ve never done a triathlon before but would like to give it a go on an easy, local course without a huge financial (or training) commitment. A mini version of the course is available for the "super youths" ages 5-8.
The event is part of Albany Local Week, celebrating the city of Albany, CA offerings.
