About This Activity

Columbus, GA has quickly become a Triathlon Mecca. It is home to a long distance triathlons, sprints, olympics, duathlons, adventure races, and off road duathlons. The 4-6ft down river swims, fast and flat bike course, and the flat and scenic run course appeal to both the beginner and advanced triathlete.
