Are you looking for a new challenge this summer? Register for the 7th Annual Frisco Triathlon on Friday, July 9, 2021 featuring stand-up-paddle boarding, mountain biking, and trail running. This twist on a triathlon is open to all ability levels and encourages athletes to take on a new multi-sport event. The Frisco Triathlon was named “Best Triathlon” in Elevation Outdoors Magazine’s reader poll, 2016 Best of the Rockies.
The Frisco Triathlon is moving to a Friday in 2021. With the volume of people we see at the Frisco Bay Marina on the weekends, we feel that we can provide the best racer experience, as well as provide a safe environment for other Marina guests by moving the race to a Friday.
