Unlike so many races on the market that say they are for first timers and you end up racing against people who have been doing triathlon for years, this race is exclusively for first timers and is limited to 150 participants. Everything about this event is designed to ensure you are successful. The course is flat and we have experienced triathletes as volunteers to help answer all your questions. This is a no pressure event. You can't help but have fun.
Additional Information & Event Schedule:
Your race packet will include all the materials you need for your race, such as your race bib, bike sticker, swim cap and some fun stuff like your complimentary event shirt and special offers.
Pick up your race packets at our training center at 1340 Highway 96 East in White Bear Lake (get directions). We highly recommend picking up your packet in advance of race day. We can answer questions and give last minute advise to help you sleep better.
Thursday, June 21st from 11:00am-6:00pm
Friday, June 22nd from 11:00a.m-5:00p.m.
Both the June and August My First Tri races are located at Rice Creek Chain of the Lakes Park Reserve, 7401 Main Street, Lino Lakes, MN 55038 (get directions).
