We were recently made aware of a major construction project on the bicycle course. We reviewed detours and alternatives and still came up short. Unfortunately, we are forced to cancel this year's event due to the safety concern this brings. Participants please check your email for details.

We apologize for the unfortunate news so close to the race, but it is out of concern for everyone’s safety we made this difficult decision. We will continue to work to make FirstTry a reliably safe and fun atmosphere for years to come.

Welcome to the 11th annual FirstTry Triathlon, a triathlon designed specifically for first timers ages 12 and up!

If you are not a first time triathlete, please sign up for the FastTry, which is the competitive version of the FirstTry with age group and overall awards.

The distance is what we call a Super Sprint (shorter than a sprint). The concept of the FirstTry is to offer a race that gives you the experience and fun of racing in a real triathlon without the intimidation factor.

The race is hosted by a group of local triathletes who are dedicated to bringing new athletes into the sport of Triathlon. We want to see people fall in love with the sport like we have. 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.

"You never forget your first!"

*USA Triathlon Sanctioned event
