About The Rookie Triathlon

If doing a triathlon is on your bucket list, then this is the triathlon for you!

We wanted everyone to be able to experience the joy and awesome community that is triathlon, so in 2004 we created The Rookie Triathlon.

This super sprint tri is a great beginner triathlon and is unique because of its separated Rookie (beginners) and Veterans (experience triathlete) waves. The course is beginner friendly but also great for those who are looking to speed on a short distance.

Where can you take part?! The CapTex Tri and Kerrville Triathlon Festival both host Rookie Tri Events!
