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, 9.5 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 nine 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!

2020 Event Information

After much debate and consideration, the Why Not Tri board has made the unfortunate decision to cancel the 2020 Why Not Tri triathlon.

This decision was not made lightly or easily but was a necessary one in trying to put on an event that is safe as well as financially achievable. This is not the outcome we were hoping for, but we will look forward to seeing all of you at Why Not Tri 2021.

We are offering 2 OPTIONS for you to move forward with your registration:

Option 1, Deferral: Defer your full entry fee to the 2021 Why Not Tri triathlon. Any participant who has not made a decision by May 31, 2020 will automatically be deferred to the 2021 event.

*Once you have selected this option it will be saved into our records. You will not receive a confirmation email, and no further action will be required from you!


Option 2, Refund: You can request a refund of the cost of registration minus initial transaction fees. Refunds need to be requested by May 31, 2020. Any participant that has not requested a refund by May 31 will automatically have their registration deferred to the 2021 race. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us.

*Once you have selected this option it will be saved into our records. You will not receive a confirmation email, and no further action will be required from you!

We are very thankful for our racers, sponsors, and volunteers as we proceed through these uncertain times. Thank you for continued support and understanding. We hope you stay safe, healthy, and happy!
