The Hawk Island Triathlon is a beginner-friendly event designed to welcome and encourage people of all ages, shapes, sizes and abilities as they venture into the world of triathlon. Sprint/Olympic participants range in age from 8 to 80+. That's no joke... our most seasoned racer this year is 82 years young!

The Sprint is a perfect distance for newbies, as well as experienced athletes who like a "warm-up" event for the summer triathlon season. We also offer a more challenging Olympic distance for those ready to hit the ground (swimming, biking, and) running!

The Kids race has three categories with varying distances for ages 2-14. You read that correctly, folks. We have toddler triathletes! The swim course is shallow enough that all kids can touch, and the entire Kids race is within Hawk Island County Park, providing optimum safety for racers & visibility for parents.

In many cases, multiple generations of family members train and race together. To the extent possible, we will happily work with racers to accommodate mobility, visual and hearing challenges.

Not ready to tri it alone? We've got you covered with relay options in both distances.

Hey moms and dads... why not stay the whole weekend and make the Hawk Island Triathlon your go to event for family fitness? Use this time to model healthy habits that last a lifetime. Your kids are never too young to swim, bike, and run! Spend quality time training alongside your kiddos.... they can race on Saturday, and you race on Sunday!

How to Avoid The Porta Potty During a Race
