The club organizes and directs the Sunrise Triathlon Series, a favorite annual proving grounds among new and seasoned triathletes. These races allow the new multisport athletes learn the sport and challenge the experienced racers to hone their skills and prepare for the River Cities Tri in August. The events get gradually more difficult (e.g. longer distances, hotter weather, more challenging courses, etc.), allowing participants to build their endurance, skills, and confidence into the triathlon season.
The tri series originated as a single race in 1995 and have varied from two to four races. We have held races in Town South Swim Club since 1995, a beloved venue due to its shallow pools swim and friendly neighborhood run course. In 2017 the race moved to the newly-constructed YMCA with a state-of-the-art 50-meter pool. Since 2021 we’ve returned to Town South Swim Club for our pool swim race. In 2016 we added an open water swim at the El Karubah Shrine on Cross Lake and in 2023 we’ve moved it to the American Legion Post on Cross Lake.
