Due to an overwhelming response in favor of an all women event, we are recreating our women triathlon and duathlon for ever! Come and join us for a wonderfull all women event at beautiful Shady Beach in Norwalk.
Celebrate health, fitness, new challenges and friendships in a warm all women atmosphere. Stay after the race for breakfast, massages and nice conversations. We will offer a beginners wave with swim angels for all of you who are still a bit scared and worried about the open water experience. We are also working at creating a finisher’s medal for you to keep for ever! Invite your friends, mothers, daughters and have a great fun day at the beach.
We will be offering all year round training programs in our new facility at Swim 70, so get ready and start a new fitness life in 2015 by registering today!
Part of the proceeds from the Swim Seventy Triathlon & Duathlon will benefit Swim Seventy's "70 Skills". Swim Seventy is proud to present “70 Skills”, our free water safety program for all first grade students in the area. Swimming is a critical life skill, particularly in our coastal community. Therefore we are committed to providing 10 free water safety classes to all first graders. Through this program, students will learn 70 important skills to help build their ability to have fun safely in and around water.

Excellent event today, it was a great race! Trifitness has really helped me build confidence and prepare for races this season, today's race was my 4th tri this summer and I'm looking forward to many more. Thank you for what you are doing for women's participation in sports!
Thank you and the rest of the trifitness team for being so supportive and
really helping me be ready for my first triathlon. It was a great experience
and I felt totally prepared, nothing was unexpected. I went from never
having swum more than 50 meters in open water to being confident about my
abilities in , as promised, 8 weeks. The whole race was great from all the smiling volunteers to the welcoming beach finish. I am already looking forward to next year and hopefully a
bunch in between !
I have been thinking about what to write all day. Today was an amazing experience!!! While I didn't place high in the ranks, you should know that all my legs were much faster and stronger than any training run or bike I had done. The other women were SO encouraging and supportive and everything was wonderful! I can't wait for next year!!! I look forward to winter training with you and I hope to do the triathlon next year. Great job today and THANK YOU!
Be well, Jodi
Thank you for a wonderful event - the race couldn't have been better run or filled with more supportive volunteers along the way. Thank you - thank you - thank you... I will make this another annual event.
Today was wonderful! The volunteers & my "fellow" athletes were all great! It was lots of fun! Definitely a very special women's triathlon. The prizes are incredible! I am here from CA. I look forward to participating again next year! Thank you! Take care.
