About This Activity

Retro Triathlon Series: We were selected by USA Triathlon to host an event in the Midwest Region in an effort to promote an active multisport lifestyle. There is an event in each of the 10 regions.

 

The Concept: The focus in on participation, not competition. All events will be in a non-competitive atmosphere. The series will expose and continue to educate all participants to USA Triathlon and the exciting world of multisport.
