Looking to challenge yourself in 2017? Then sign up for a women’s only outdoor triathlon! These events focus on camaraderie and fun, allowing you to be as competitive as you want to be — or not! Work your way up to open water swimming in a lake or ocean by opting for an event with a pool swim. See? You don’t have a reason “not to tri.”

Below is a comprehensive list by state and province of women’s-only triathlons of varying distances slated for 2017. Bookmark this triathlon listing page because it will be updated as information is received or discovered. Let me know of any additions, changes or corrections, too!
