Welcome to the 8th annual FirstTry Triathlon, a triathlon designed specifically for first timers ages 10 and up! 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 the Greater Flint Athletic Club, a group of local runners, cyclists, and 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 a triathlete and you’ll be filled with a sense of accomplishment that you simply have to experience to truly understand.
If you’re 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.
