This event was dreamed up back in 2009 as a way to get kids active and to introduce something new for them to TRY. All proceeds benefit
Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters Serving Crawford County. Pittsburg is located in SEK and is 2-3 hours from major cities in Kansas, Missouri,
Arkansas, and Oklahoma. Our goal is to engage kids from each of these communities to try a triathlon. In 2010 the dream became a reality.
The first TRYathlon had 30 participants and now we have seen as many as 120. In 2015, the team relay was sold out and we had 130 5K/10K
The get fit TRYathlon is a youth event for ages 5-14. It is a combination of swimming, biking, and running. This year's event will take place at
the Pittsburg aquatic center. We are excited about the joint effort with the city of Pittsburg and Tailwind Cyclists and out many other
sponsors who have been with us from the beginning.
