One of Theresa's great passions, apart from me, is introducing new athletes to cycling and triathlon. It's become one of the defining features in our lives and we are richer because of the friendships we've made. About (we're not entirely sure) six years ago she decided to create a women only triathlon out at Echo. With her co-conspirator, Erin " there's no such thing as a bad idea" Kiefer and the Regina Multisport Club they created a fun race aimed at being very beginner friendly, yet still have a competitive aspect to it. It's ton of fun, lots of camaraderie, challenging yet safe. A great way to dip your toe into the sport.
All the details are below, including how to Register. Do it today if you can, there's extra bling involved.

Geared towards all levels of athletes, this race includes a 750m open water swim at the main beach, a 20k bike ride around the lake and a 5k run on the beautiful park trails. The race also offers a modified Try-a-Tri distance which is a 375m swim, 20k bike, 3k run. A special feature of this race is our Swim Angels.
