About Us

Since its inception in 1974, triathlon has been distinctive in its inclusion of female and male competitors on the same courses with the same challenges and rules. In keeping with the unique spirit of our sport, Women For Tri looks to increase female participation at all levels of triathlon. Women For Tri embodies the heart and soul of what makes the sport so rewarding: testing your ability, overcoming challenges, and realizing the full depth of your potential in the most widely recognized test of endurance – triathlon.

About Us

Women For Tri™, a program of The IRONMAN Foundation launched by IRONMAN and Life Time Fitness in 2015, works to increase female participation at all levels of triathlon. The program seeks to identify and diminish primary barriers to entry and mobilize triathlon advocates to encourage and engage female athletes across all race distances and representing all athletic abilities. Since inception, over $131,000 in scholarships and grants have been awarded to female collegiate athletes and triathlon clubs supporting female participation initiatives.  Women For Tri embodies the heart and soul of what makes the sport so rewarding: testing your ability, overcoming challenges, and realizing the full depth of your potential in the most widely recognized test of endurance – triathlon. 

Women For Tri is advised by a board of 12 women who have dedicated their personal time and expertise to help accomplish this mission. Passion and love for the sport is #whywetri.
