It starts in California and ends up in Arizona … thus the name, the XTERRA Tri2Unify off-road triathlon.
Now in its second-year, the Tri2Unify takes place on a scenic, point-to-point course during the sunny end of spring, on Sunday, May 3 to be exact.
It starts at Squaw Lake in Bard, California, and ends at Historic Quarter Master Depot in Yuma, Az.
There are two major thrilling hills and a few exhilarating curves as the course follows the striking Colorado River. You finish the last half mile running past the legendary Territorial Prison, Ocean to Ocean Bridge, and the East Wetlands wild life bird reserve leading you up to the finish line. The event also includes a top-notch expo, and post-race festival complete with music and a large finish line with an awards ceremony.
The XTERRA Tri2Unify Triathlon has 3 different distances offered and is hosting the Unified Triathlon for the Special Olympic Athletes May 2 at the Yuma Palms Resort.
