Be part of the great experience. Here are some comments from last year’s Smithfield Triathlon race.
"The Smithfield Sprint Tri was the first event I participated in that showed me that I enjoyed the three events as much as just running. I participate in this race every year, because Greg and his crew do an awesome job to keep you wanting to come back."
