2012 marks the 12th Annual Barb';s Race. If you are a female triathlete who has been thinking about moving up from the Olympic Distance (swim 1.5K, bike 40K, run 10K) to the world of long-course triathlons, Barb';s Race is perfect for you! Barb';s Race is the only all women';s half distance triathlon in the world...so this is your chance to be part of something special! Read the Vineman Race Director';s account of how Barb';s Race came about. In 2012 we will limit the field to 575 participants.
Barb';s Race is held on the same day as the Full Vineman Triathlon. The event is intended to be a unique opportunity for women to do a half distance triathlon that raises money to support women facing a cancer diagnosis. Athletes will swim 1.2 miles, bike 56 miles, and run 13.1 miles. Barb';s Race will follow the same course as the Full Vineman, but is half of the distance.
Half of all entry fees from Barb';s Race will be placed in our Vineman Charity Grants that donates to local cancer charities. More than $500,000 has been raised for these organizations through Barb';s Race since 2001.
