Background & Mission
How We Got Started
In 2015, after starting the Charleston chapter of Tri It for Life, Angi realized that there was a void in the triathlon community for beginner women events. The closest women’s only triathlon was in North Carolina, so she decided to plan a women’s only triathlon in Charleston, which is where the idea for She Tris began. With approachable distances, She Tris is an event any level of participant can accomplish. Angi and Sarah want to continue to inspire women to put themselves first and create their own journey to becoming a triathlete.
If she believes
she can, she will!
The mission of She Tris is to create a welcoming and supportive triathlon environment for women and girls who want to complete a triathlon, regardless of their level of experience. By tackling the challenge of triathlon, we believe our participants will feel empowered to take on other challenges in life, be it personal or professional, and that the impact of She Tris will reach beyond the finish line into the lives of these women and those they influence along the way.
