About This Activity

It's a new year and a new season for triathlons. This is the first in a series of 8 events over the summer, finishing with a championship race at the beginning of October. There's 2 Super Sprint distances to choose from for the adults, and races for children. The swim portion is inside the Francis Meadows Aquatics Center, so we're guaranteed to have great water temps.  Technical shirts for all participants.  Awards to the overall male & Female, Masters male & female, and the top 3 in all the usual adult 5 year age groups 14-19 through 75+.
