Ready to get your feet wet? Head to Blue Lake this weekend for My First Tri!
MY FIRST TRI, in Fairview, OR, August 4 is designed for those active athletes wanting to make the leap into the sport of triathlon in a comfortable, non-competitive environment. This is a “newbie” race for the first-time triathlete, or if you’ve done any of our “Tri-IT” events, you are welcome at My First Tri.
This is a FUN event to do with your friends and family! High school students or participants 18 years & younger may deduct $10 from the entry fee.
AA Sports strives to put on entertaining events. We will have a live band and delicious food and drinks for you to enjoy after the race. The race fee includes Commemorative Tech Shirt, My First Tri Finisher Medal, ChampionChip Timing, awards and prizes!
My First Tri is designed as a typical “Sprint Distance” race but with a shorter swim since this particular leg (of a triathlon) can often be the most challenging for first timers. For this event, nearly everyone will be of the same swimming ability, thus alleviating stress for participants and truly making this conducive to first-time triathletes. The overall goal of the event is focused more on completing the race rather than a top 10 finish. The friendly and encouraging atmosphere will surely help you in attaining your goal – completing My First Tri – and to be able to proudly call yourself a triathlete!
What are you getting yourself into? Epic Tri coaches will be available at Packet Pick-up, Friday, August 3, from 11am to 4pm to answer your questions. You can register for the race there as well. Look for a $10 GIFT CARD from Epic Tri in your race packet!
EPIC Tri Shop, 12345 SW Canyon Rd., Beaverton, OR 97005 [Click here for map] Phone: 503-641-2580.
We also have a Facebook page where you can look at photos from previous events and discuss My First Tri with other participants.
If you are an experienced triathlete, please come out and support your friends. As you know, the first step can be the hardest, but then you get hooked. Don’t miss this opportunity to share your favorite sport!
