It’s Ohio. It’s June. It’s Triathlon Season. When it comes to triathlon and duathlon in Ohio, we got you covered. There is no better way to kick-off your season then with the Central Ohio Triathlon & Duathlon Challenge. Race weekend consists of multiple distance options, including the Central Ohio Super Sprint, Sprint, Olympic, and TripleTri Challenges. You can participate in the challenge as individuals, as part of a relay or by teaming up with their co-workers as part of the Central Ohio Corporate Triathlon Series.

We are excited to get back to our core and introduce a new participation opportunity the day prior to the event – the Central Ohio Aquathlon Challenge. The Central Ohio Open Waters Swims return with its great training and competition options.

If you haven’t heard yet, we’re taking some bold steps this year, launching a myriad of new initiatives that Central Ohio hasn’t yet seen. Our goal is to make the sport of triathlon a bit friendlier for new athletes, as well as enhance the experience of our seasoned veterans.

We’re also excited about our new Greenswell Champion program and the inclusion of the Central Ohio Triathlon Challenge in the program. Do you know someone that has endured a personal battle, someone who brings inspiration to those around them or someone that is a champion in their community? Let us know. We are calling out for nominees who will be given entry into the 2018 Central Ohio Triathlon Challenge.

We are also introducing the “Try A Tri” program where every registered participant through April 30 of the Central Ohio Triathlon Challenge will receive an email with a special code that will give a friend, family member, co-worker or even a stranger who has (1) never done a triathlon before, (2) has never done a Greenswell triathlon before, or has not done a triathlon in over 3 years, a special $20 base entry into the Super Sprint triathlon.

What's New in 2018?
New swim course. Based on your feedback, we have re-designed the swim course to create a different swim experience then ever before.

New Transition location. Along with a new swim course, we created a new central transition area that allows closer access to restrooms and locker rooms.

New Celebration Area. The newly redesigned park patio is a great way to celebrate and celebrate your experience after the event with your fellow athletes.

We have adopted a option-based registration approach to allow athletes to reduce the cost of their participation. The base entry fee does not include an event shirt or medal but you have the option of adding these items to your registration. This allows you some flexibility to participate in one of our great events at a minimal entry fee.

All active and reserve military, police, fire, and EMT receive 50% off their entry into Central Ohio Triathlon Challenge, MingoMan Triathlon, Ohio Super Sprint Challenge, and Triathlon For Hope (female-only). We appreciate your service and we want to recognize your service.

New participation divisions to allow competitive athletes to compete with like-minded athletes and other specialized divisions to allow athletes other participation choices. New divisions include: Aquabike, First Responders, Athena and Clydesdale, Mountain Bike/City Bike, and Recreational.

Relay teams will have more participation options – Male only, Female only, Co-ed (mixed), Corporate/Club teams.

Award Ceremony will take place at the Celebration. Athletes will be able to celebrate their finish with friends and other participants.

Training Program opportunity, which includes training plan, swim clinics, group rides and runs, and even a practice triathlon.

No more waiting in lines at packet pick-up. We are introducing the Advantage program giving you the option of having your event packet and materials delivered to your home or office. This ideal for the busy professional and reduces the stress of race day.

We are excited about these changes and we hope you are too!
