Since its inception in 1974, triathlon has been distinctive in its inclusion of female and male competitors on the same courses with the same challenges and rules. In keeping with the unique spirit of our sport, Women For Tri looks to increase female participation at all levels of triathlon. The Women For Tri mission is simple: To identify and diminish primary barriers to entry, and mobilize triathlon advocates to encourage and engage female athletes across all distances and representing all athletic abilities. Women For Tri embodies the heart and soul of what makes the sport so rewarding: testing your ability, overcoming challenges, and realizing the full depth of your potential in the most widely recognized test of endurance – triathlon. WOMEN FOR TRI PARTNERS WITH THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION & LIFETIME TO PROVIDE GRANT FUNDING TO ENGAGE FEMALE ATHLETES IN THE SPORT OF TRIATHLON.
