_ The 2018 TriBella Women's Sprint & Super Sprint Triathlon:
The TriBella Women's Triathlon, presented by Coeur Sports, is the perfect all women's triathlon for first time triathletes looking to try the sport out, or seasoned veterans looking for a fun season opener to compete alongside friends and family! We'll be offering two distances; the traditional sprint distance (1/2m Swim, 10m Bike, 3.1m Run), plus a super sprint distance (/14m Swim, 8m Bike, 2m Run). Women's cut technical t-shirts, great goodie bags, one of our biggest expos of the year, a ton of raffles are just some of the highlights. This race is capped at 450 athletes to maintain a fun, yet lively, and laid back feel.
Due to the low cap we expect to be sold out by Mid May! This race will be held at the Smoky Hill Beach (East Side) of Cherry Creek Reservoir!
