About This Activity

Believe it or not, before the days of bike racks, triathlons and multisport events were still as prominent as ever. The Retro Tri Series is taking a step back to those days by offering a unique series that highlights the retro allure that once was. Retro attire is encouraged to enhance the experience and atmosphere!

The USA Triathlon Retro Tri Series is a youth and adult multisport event that combines swimming, biking, and running. Athletes will receive a final race time, with the focus on participation rather than competition.

To participate in the USA Triathlon Retro Tri Series, athletes must be at least 13 years of age. This race is one of 15 events across the United States which will make up the 2014 series. The Retro Tri Series will serve to expose and continue to educate all participants on a healthy and active multisport lifestyle.

We will be following all USAT rules and there are no refunds. Helmets are mandatory for all participants! No blocking and no drafting is allowed on the bike course.

This race is open to first-timers, seasoned veterans, and those looking to stay active, all while in an event atmosphere. We will close registration at 100 athletes!
Every registered athlete gets a Retro Tri headband, and all finishers earn a Retro-style "Trucker Hat". 

Event Distances:

Swim: 300 yards

Bike:  6 miles

Run:  2 miles
