SDSU "I'm Ready For Summer" Triathlon

Brookings, SD

The 19th annual “I’m Ready for summer” Triathlon will be cancelled due to a wintery weather forecast with winds of 20-30 miles per hour, rain, snow and a potential wind chill of 22 degrees.  We are concerned for the safety of our participants, thus the reason for our decision. 

We will however offer an Indoor Triathlon option for those registered.  You will receive your shirt and finishers medal upon completion.  We will also have a pizza bar for all participants at 11am and awards at 11:30am.

If you are not interested in participating on Saturday, we will be sending shirts out next week.

A discount code will also be sent for the 2020 event once registration opens.

Join us for our 20th annual triathlon on Saturday, April 25, 2020!

We apologize for the inconvenience, however safety is our top priority.
