The 7th annual Outdoor Divas, awarded best women's event in Colorado by Competitor Magazine, is the all women's triathlon you've been waiting for! We intentionally keep the race cap low at 600 women to create a fun, festive, yet intimate racing environment. Great goodie bags, one of our biggest expos of the year, a ton of raffles, and a completely closed race course are just some of the highlights. Due to the low cap we've sold out the past 5 years. In 2012 we reached capactiy on June 2nd so please take advantage of the early registration.
"This was my first triathlon in five years since my professional racing career ended. I had no idea what to expect and the last thing I wanted to experience was insecurity in terms of the course and safety. Thanks to Without Limits and Outdoor DIVAS, I was able to put my best foot forward on race day, with incredible support along the way. It was a blast to mix it up with a great group of inspired women I'm so happy that Skirt Sports chose the Outdoor DIVAS Triathlon as our first-ever Team Triathlon. We'll definitely be back next year!" Nicole DeBoom
