This race is exclusively for first time triathletes. The course will be heavily supported by seasoned triathletes to answer questions and help you have a successful and fun filled triathlon experience. The self seeded time trial start ensures you will go into the water without getting pummeled by faster swimmers in a wave. Free training opportunities will be emailed to registrants as they become available. Limited to 200 athletes.
