About Tri24

TRI24, TRI12 and TRI6 are looping sprint triathlons with unique distances. Each distance is 1/10 of an Ironman! Athletes swim .24mi, bike 11.2mi and run 2.6mi. Then… do it again. Participants continue racing until time is up! Athletes have the option to race solo or on a 2-4 person relay team. The option of a 24 hour loop, 12 hour loop or 6 hour loop is also available. The objective is to complete as many sprint triathlons in the time frame as possible. Winner is determined by the number of completed sprints and fully completed legs. If an athlete is on the swim course or bike course and time runs out before it is completed the leg does not count. If there is a tie within a leg then the final results will come down to time.

The 24, 12 and 6 hour race is an unbelievable triathlon experience that draws the nation’s top competitors and sprint relay racers looking for a great time.


Two ways to race:

Solo Mission Division: Take ‘em all on in the ultimate challenge and race the 24, 12 or 6 hour course solo!

Relay Division: Team up with 2-4 athletes and tackle the course together! Only one team member can race at a time so hang out and join the party…until it’s your turn to break a leg!

Don’t know anyone to team up with? No Worries! Enter yourself in our relay pool and we will find a team for you! Relay Pool
