Presented by United Real Estate of Middle TN & in its 12th year at MTSU - you won't want to miss out on this improved race. It is specifically catered to beginners who want to brag that they have completed their first triathlon!
New this year we are adding a stand alone 5K!
This is an event unlike any other in the area with an unique 300 yard pool swim, a 10 mile bike ride, and finish with a 5K through MTSU's beautiful campus. This event is perfect for seasoned athletes who are training for an upcoming triathlon OR for people who have never done one and want the personal challenge of completing their first triathlon. Beginners encouraged!
If you think doing all 3 events will be too much of a challenge, we invite you to enter under our team division. Teams of comprised of 3 people (one person for each event) and must enter under a team name. The teams may be comprised of male, female or mixed participants.
If you are a student you may register under the Student Discount Price of $5 less than individual. You MUST be a college student with a valid ID. Your University ID must be presented the day of the race or you will be charged the full amount.
Swim Details - The swim is 300 yards, which consists of 12 lanes in the MTSU indoor pool. Participants will be marked with their race number on their arm. It will be a “snake swim” with participants starting at different times. The first participant will enter the water promptly at 7:30 am with the next participant following 5 seconds later and will continue with 5 seconds between each start. Participants need to provide their own swim caps, if desired. Lanes are wide enough to pass.
The bike ride is approximately 10 miles long, with the ride beginning and ending on MTSU’s campus. Bike helmets must be worn at all times when on mounting, dismounting, and riding the bike. Participants must provide their own helmet. There will be police support in place for two hours. After that participants can finish the race, but must do so at their own risk and realize they no longer have race support.
The run will be 3.1 miles. All of the race will take place on MTSU’s campus. Participants will drop off their bikes in the transition area and then proceed to the running course. Runners will head down Blue Raider Drive towards Old Main Circle and complete the campus course. They will end up back where they started at the Rec Center.
