About This Activity

Have you always wanted to Tri?  Then this event is for you!  There is nothing intimidating about entering and competing because everyone is in the same place!  In fact, there is no special equipment needed for your first triathlon. Almost any bike will do and for the swimming portion, you can either swim, water row, or stationary row.  The race includes a 300m swim/row, a 5K run (road or trail) and a 10K bike (road or trail).  Only first time Tri-ers will qualify for awards.  However, anyone can participate in this relaxed race for great practice! 

So, join us as Oxford CrossFit hosts My First Tri.  You are guarenteed to feel a huge sense of accomplishment and gain the bragging rights of completing your first Tri!  Meanwhile, the proceeds from your hardwork will benefit The University of Mississippi Army ROTC and Regents School of Oxford.  It's a win-win for everyone!
