The focus of the Retro Tri Series is participation, rather than competition. The aim of the events is to introduce the sport of triathlon and educate race participants about the healthy and active multisport lifestyle. The events are open to first-timers, seasoned veterans and those looking to stay active, all while swimming, biking and running in a safe atmosphere. Each event is sanctioned by USA Triathlon.
The Retro Tri Series events are geared toward adult and youth competitors age 13 and up. Each race will feature a 300-400-yard swim, 5-10-mile bike and 2-5-kilometer run.
