The first She Tris event came to fruition in 2016. It became the obvious race for the training group to set as a goal.
“Not everyone in the race is a part of the Tri it for Life training program,” said Klick. “We accept 80 athletes for Tri if for Life, and there are 65 mentors, some who also complete She Tris with the athletes. But most mentors volunteer on the race course. There is a cap of 300 participants in She Tris, and we sell out every year pretty early on.”
