If doing a triathlon is on your bucket list, then this is the triathlon for you!
We wanted everyone to be able to experience the joy and awesome community that is triathlon, so in 2004 we created The Rookie Triathlon. This super sprint tri is a great beginner triathlon and is unique because of its separated Rookie (beginners) and Veterans (experience triathlete) waves. The course is beginner friendly but also great for those who are looking to speed on a short distance.
The distances consist of 300m swim, 11.2-mile bike ride, and a 2-mile run. Rookie Tri features a controlled swim start. There are aquabike and relay options.
The Rookie Triathlon is a sprint triathlon, which is perfect if this is your first triathlon. This beginner triathlon course begins with a short 300-meter loop swim in Decker Lake. The swim course is lined with trained lifeguards in kayaks to keep the event as safe as it is fun! The bike course does 1 loop around the lake in a protected dedicated lane. The run course takes place on a mix of road and smooth grass/mulch trails.
