Rocky Mountain State Games: Indoor Triathlon

Colorado Springs

 

USA Triathlon has developed an indoor triathlon program called USATri60 to introduce individuals to the sport of triathlon at a grassroots level.  The purpose will be to expose participants to the sport of triathlon in a one hour, non-threatening setting and with a built-in support system built to drive the concept that ‘anyone can be a triathlete’.  The YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region and the Rocky Mountain State Games are partnering to offer this event as a part of the 2019 Rocky Mountain State Games. All athletes will receive a USA Triathlon goodie bag and will compete for Gold, Silver, and Bronze Rocky Mountain State Games medals. A maximum number of athletes will be permitted due to facility capacities. All participants will be assigned a race number that will be visible on all swim caps as well as marked on the top of each participants hand. All results will be listed on the Rocky Mountain State Games results page and the USATri60 results page after the event.

“This was my first triathlon in five years since my professional racing career ended. I had no idea what to expect and the last thing I wanted to experience was insecurity in terms of the course and safety. Thanks to Without Limits and Outdoor DIVAS, I was able to put my best foot forward on race day, with incredible support along the way. It was a blast to mix it up with a great group of inspired women. I’m so happy that Skirt Sports chose the Outdoor DIVAS Triathlon as our first-ever Team Triathlon. We’ll definitely be back next year!” Nicole DeBoom
