About the Race

What makes the Ripon Medical Center Triathlon great for beginners?
  • Broad range of participants with a high percentage of first timers.
  • Other events field over two thousand racers which can be very intimidating for the first timer.
  • Beginners that do other events our size may find themselves out on the road by themselves for extended time periods, but our race having 2 courses that overlap, you will find just the right number of competitors for an enjoyable day.
  • Most of our race takes place in the Green Lake Conference Center and away from the standard city street.
