About This Activity

The Terrapin Triathlon is back for 2016 and we are really excited for newcomers and returners to join us on the course. Triathlons are a great way to start or maintain a fitness program as it includes, swimming, biking and running. If you aren't sure you are ready to complete a full triathlon by yourself, don't worry. Grab a few friends and form a relay team. We encourage anyone, 14 years and older to participate in this wonderful event.
