About This Activity

The FirstTry Triathlon is a Super Sprint Tri consisting of a 300yd Swim, 9.1mi Bike, and a 2mi Run, held at Linden County Park's Clover Beach on Byram Lake, near Downtown Linden, MI.  The concept of the FirstTry is to offer you a race that gives you the experience of racing in a real triathlon without the inimidation factor from a longer event!  It's a non-competitive timed event intended for the first timer.  We also offer the FastTry using the same course, but with a more competitive vibe and age-group awards.  All participants in both races will get a short-sleeve wicking t-shirt, and all finishers of each race will receive a medal.
