Just TRI It Triathlon

We are excited to partner with Dare2Tri for Just Tri It, a paratriathlon challenge for first-time and experienced triathletes. The goal is to see how many miles you can swim, bike and run from March 1 to May 1. As you surpass certain milestones, you will earn badges and have the opportunity to win some great prizes. Come on! Just Tri It!

Check out our Q&A video from event coordinators Meagan Rowe and Dan Tun.

How to Participate

This is a virtual challenge, so you can complete your miles anytime between March 1 and May 1 and anywhere – at home, in your community, or at Lakeshore. The cumulative-distance format allows you to count every swim, bike, and run during the two-month challenge toward your overall total. If you wish to only run, walk or push,  you can! If you prefer to just bike or just swim, you can! You can do as much as or as little of each discipline as you’d like.
