Warsaw Optimist Sprint Triathlon

WINONA LAKE SENIOR CENTER • 1590 Park Avenue Winona LakeIN  46590 Organized by Green Earth Multisport, LLC

About this event

The Warsaw Breakfast Optimist Club is proud to sponsor the 28th Annual Warsaw Optimist Sprint Triathlon scheduled for Saturday, June 26, 2021! The event is held at the spectacular Winona Lake Park located at 1590 Park Ave in Winona Lake, Indiana.

The Warsaw Optimist Sprint Triathlon will consist of the following divisions:

Adult (Age Group), Clydesdale, Athena, Adult Relay, Kayak, Kayak Relay, Physically Challenged, Adult Duathlon, and Youth divisions.

Youth will use the same Swim, Bike and Run racecourse as the adults, but each event will be shortened. Youth waves will launch immediately after all adult waves. We will have over 100 experienced volunteers participating to help make this race THE BEST RACE OF YOUR RACING YEAR!

That is our goal. And when you cross the finish line, you will be treated to the best post-race food you can find at any Triathlon!

We are again expecting well over 200 Athletes this year.

The Optimist Club is a not for profit that donates all proceeds of this race to our youth outreach programs in our community and we are well known in our area for our support of many youth oriented activities. Please feel free to investigate our website for a full list of these events.


The 2021 event will operate under COVID-19 protocols. Our COVID-19 Safe event plan has been developed to manage the risks associated with the transmission of the virus. Central to the event’s COVID-19 safe event plan are the USAT Safe Return to Multisport initiative, which focus on tracing, education, enhanced hygiene, density reduction, touchpoint minimization, athlete self-reliance and screening. We understand some of these changes might impact your athlete experience; however, we ask for your understanding as we strive to mitigate risks so you can keep racing.


We offer a variety of event categories for participants of all abilities to choose form including:

  • Adult Open
  • Adult Relay
  • Athena
  • Clydesdale
  • Duathlon
  • Youth 11-12
  • Youth 13-14
  • PC (including My Team Triumph)
  • Kayak-Bike-Run
  • Kayak-Bike-Run Relay
