National Triathlon Week
National Triathlon Week is a nationwide initiative to celebrate the sport of triathlon and all members of the multisport community. This week is geared toward education, celebration and participation in the multisport lifestyle. The schedule for the week features a new theme each day, with a spotlight on all of the components that make this sport so great. National Triathlon Week, or #TriWeek, is a celebration of not only triathletes, but all members of the multisport community — including officials, coaches, race directors, sponsors, families and friends of triathletes and more.
There are many ways to get involved in National Triathlon Week! Whether you have five minutes or a full day, you’ll find a way to join the celebration. See ways to get involved in multisport all throughout this page, and be sure to use the hashtag #TriWeek on social media. This is your chance to share your story and compete against friends and triathletes across the country for daily prizes.
National Triathlon Week is for everyone! We want to hear your best stories and advice, see your favorite photos and share the multisport lifestyle all week long. Follow and like us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for special feature content throughout the week and details on how you can be eligible to win some amazing prizes from our partners.
For the seventh consecutive year, athletes can enter to win a USA Triathlon Lifetime Membership by sharing their multisport journey and demonstrating how triathlon has helped them discover their Power Within. Let us know: how has the sport helped you overcome adversity and find your inner strength?
Submissions must either be emailed directly to email@example.com (subject line: "#TriWeek Power Within") or shared on social media, tagging @usatriathlon and using the hashtags #TriWeek and #PowerWithin.
