About This Activity

The Try Tri triathlons are back in 2014 and continue to grow annually! This is the premier event to kick off your tri season no matter your level of expertise. With the super sprint and long sprint this race suits beginners to pros, and as an added bonus we offer TWO kids distances for children 5-16! Not only is this race full of options, but the location is perfection! All races start in SIUE's beautiful indoor pool. Adults swim either 150 or 300 meters, and the kids swim either a 25 or a 50. Once you head outdoors you will enter a top notch transition set up where you will be set up for the day. The bike course is next and is pristine riding throughout Madison County roads. State Police provide the extra safety along with local and SIUE police. Traffic is minimal and portions of the course are darn near closed! You will be able to focus on your goals during this bike course. Lastly the run will be throughout SIUE campus on the closed to traffic bike paths. Fast and flat is the continued theme of this race. You have a great course, at an awesome & close venue and to top it all off this year we are giving away HOODIES at the race. That's right custom sweet Official Try Tri hoodies designed by RMP staff. You will want this item! Register today to save $ and gaurantee your SWAG. See you at the start of the 2014 tri season at SIUE!
