2015 Women’s Only Triathlons & Duathlons in U.S. & Canada

A sticker that reads "You don't have to win, you just have to TRI."

Does the mere idea of doing a triathlon — even a short “beginner” distance — sound, shall we say, “daunting”?

Relax! You can do this, especially if you select a women-only triathlon.

You’ll find plenty of camaraderie and encouragement because the other women are facing the same challenge as you — how to swim, bike, and run/jog/walk/crawl to the finish line! It’s all about the journey, not how fast or proficient you are.

Or try a duathlon. That’s a run-bike event without the swim component.

Listed below are women-only triathlons and duathlons in the U.S. and Canada for 2015. Some offer a women-only 5K running event too.

Important notes:

  • Always check the event’s website for the latest information.
  • Even if an event has passed, visit its website for results and/or 2016 information.
  • Bookmark this page as it will be updated as information is received or discovered.
  • Let me know of any additions, changes or corrections, too!
