Welcome to the FirstTry Triathlon, a triathlon designed specifically for first timers. The distance is what we call a Super Sprint (half a sprint).
The concept of the FirstTry is to offer a race that gives you the experience of racing in a "real" triathlon without the intimidation factor.
The race is sponsored by the CSC Triclub, a group of local triathletes who are dedicated to bringing new athletes into the sport of Triathlon. Grab a friend and start training now as this race only comes once a year and you first time comes only once in your life. Many first time triathletes will go on to compete in races around the world. Triathlon attracts many people because of the lifestyle. The athletes are friendly and approachable with wealth of knowledge. We want to see people fall in love with the sport like we have. When you get to a point where triathlon is adopted as a lifestyle change you are not subject to the pitfalls of diets and targeted weight loss, you are in control. Triathlon is a sport that has longevity because if you are having running issues, you hit the pool hard until the issues are gone. If you have trouble finding time for the bike your running will carry over. Swimming is a sport that sees the least injuries of any. At the FirstTry finish line you graduate as triathlete and you will be filled with a sense of accomplishment that you simply have to experience to truly understand.
