About the Why Not Tri

We're a great local triathlon to welcome beginners to the sport but also challenge the experienced athlete. Racers will complete a 400 yard swim, 8.5 mile bike, and a 5k run. Join us for our adult solo or team relay race or get the little ones involved with our Kids Race for the budding triathletes ages 6-12.

Why Not Tri was started to promote healthy lifestyles and introduce the fun sport of triathlon to the community.  We couldn't have made it possible without our racers, volunteers, and sponsors over the last twelve years.  Thank you!

We are proud to donate to the ALS Therapy Development Institute.  ALS is a progressive disease that deteriorates the muscles, and there currently is no cure.  Thank you for donating to the cause!
