What is a Race-within-a-race?

Age group and team triathletes may be eligible to compete in one of the races within The Nation’s Triathlon. If eligible, your times will be ranked against both your age group (or team type) and those in the Challenge.

Why Compete in a Race-within-a-race?

It’s like competing in two races at one time!

How Can I Compete in a Race-within-a-race?

Simply select which race-within-a-race you’d like to compete in when filling out the registration form.

If you qualify for multiple races-within-a-race, you may only compete in ONE.
