The perfect short-distance multisport event to start off your season! The Tune Up Tri is an excellent race for beginners, and also a great opportunity for more experienced athletes to use as a gauge of your fitness early in the season. It's a tune-up...hone your skills and remember what it feels like to race 3 sports in one event!
TUNE UP FOR THE 2013 SEASON!!!
The Tune Up Tri has a twist in it: since we're racing in March and don't want icicles in our hair..... we'll start the triathlon with the run, then do the bike, and finally end up with a "snake swim" at the pool (so you begin your swim whenever you arrive, not having to wait for an empty lane)
