The Tri-For-Real triathlon, as like past seasons, follows this year’s three Tri-For-Fun triathlons (the past three “Fun” non-timed and shorter-distance triathlons were held June-August). Now it’s time to increase the challenge for many of the novice triathletes (as well as the seasoned triathletes) with official timing & results, and awards.
Utilizing the lake and rolling hills of Shadow Cliff Park and the paved roads running through Pleasanton and Livermore, the timed “Real” course distance is extended to a 700-yard swim (warm, clean lake), 18-mile bike (loop course, flat surface), and 4-mile run (rolling dirt trails).
Unique carved soapstone trophies will go to the top male and female finishers. Beautiful glass trophies will be given to the top male and female Masters (over 45-years old) winners. In addition, beautiful medals are given three deep in designated age groups for both male and female participants.
The Tri-For-Fun Triathlon Series continues to be a huge hit with seasoned triathletes and first timers, “Triathlete” magazine agrees, when they named the Tri-For-Fun Triathlon Series as one of the top 12 triathlons in Northern America. It is estimated that this season more than 1,500 first-time triathletes took part with one, or more, of the three Tri-For-Fun triathlons.
Entry fee is $75.00 in advance, and $85.00 race day, individual, and $210.00 in advance, and $240.00, race day, relay teams. Along with the awards ceremony, participants will receive a commemorative T-shirt, after-race snacks, and entry into a huge after-race raffle.
Don't forget to bring your mandatory swim cap, ANSI approved bike helmet, and, of course, your bike.
