Since 2013, triathletes have gathered on the shores of Antrim Lake in the Heart of Ohio – Columbus, Ohio for the largest Olympic and Sprint triathlon in the Buckeye State. The TriFit Challenge Triathlon (and Duathlon) is an action-packed tour through one of America’s signature metropolises and ends with an exciting finish inside Ohio Stadium – home of The Ohio State Buckeyes.

When it comes to triathlon and duathlon in Columbus, we’ve got you covered. Race weekend consists of multiple distance options, including the Ross Tri (super sprint/mini), Ross Fit (sprint) and Ross Challenge (Olympic) triathlons and duathlon. Participants can race as individuals, as part of a relay or by teaming up with their co-worker...s as part of the YMCA Corporate Challenge or Central Ohio Corporate Triathlon Series.

In 2018, we are adding the Aquabike format to the Ross TriFit Challenge. In addition, we are adding the weight categories Clydesdale (male) and Athena (female) for those looking to move out of the age division and be more competitive.

We’re excited about the inclusion of the TriFit Challenge Triathlon in the Greenswell Champion program. Do you know someone that has endured a personal battle, someone who brings inspiration to those around them or someone that is a champion in their community? Let us know.

Why Participate in the TriFit Challenge?
We all participate in the TriFit Challenge for different reasons, and it's important to stop and look at the "why’s." Maybe you have a goal to lose weight, or prove something to yourself. Maybe you simply love the activities of swimming, biking and running. For many athletes, supporting an event with a charitable purpose is the logical next step in using their favorite hobby to make a positive change.

A portion of your entry fee, additional donations, and pledges go directly to the TriFit Challenge Fund at The Ohio State University’s Wexner Medical Center Davis Heart & Lung Research Institute and Ross Heart Hospital for much needed research into early detection of heart disease – the #1 cause of death in the United States. The research being performed through your participation in the TriFit Challenge is helping to identify genetic markers of heart disease and slow their progression through preventative care. The TriFit Challenge Fund supports the long-tradition of pioneering genetic breakthroughs in the field of cardiology at Ohio State.

New This Year
