First Tri is the perfect race to kickstart your triathlon race season, or better yet, to kickstart your triathlon race career. Developed to be a fun, non-intimidating, entry point into the sport of triathlon, First Tri features a format ideal for newbies. But if competition is your flavor, this race has you covered as well as we feature a scoring method that incentives you to go "all out". Join us for this 3rd annual race that will once again be taking part in conjunction with the Music City Endurance Sports Summit & Expo at Vanderbilt University!
