About This Activity

Event History

The USAT Sanctioned Tri for Real Olympic-distance Triathlon was added to our TRI for FUN Sprint Triathlon Series in 2003. In 2007 we added the TRI for KIDS races for athletes aged 4 to 14 years old on the same day as the Tri for Real events.

2015 Race Features

The TRI for REAL Series is USAT Sanctioned for 2015, and back this year are USAT Aqua Bike events at each Tri for Real Triathlon. NEW this year is an option for a 1.5K Swim, with swim cap and lunch included! These races are held at Rancho Seco Park in Herald, California. The course has a 1.5 k swim - 40 k bike - 10 k run. The Series dates for the three races are: May 31, June 28 and August 2, 2015. Series Awards, including a Free entry into the 2016 Tri for Real Series, will be presented to the top male and female racing all three events in each age group. Included for each athlete is custom tech-tee race shirt, a swim cap, athlete goody bag, hot post race meal, and free athlete massage.

Series Special

Sign up for all three Tri for Real Triathlons for $200 until the end of November. Series price increases to $240 on December 1st, 2014. Series Finisher Medals will be given at the August event to athletes racing in all three Tri for Real Triathlons. 

The Tri for Real Triathlon and Aqua Bike will be USAT Sanctioned, requiring the purchase of a $12 one-day license with USAT, or the holding of an annual membership card with USAT.
