The YWCA Minneapolis Women's Triathlon is a women’s only triathlon offering Sprint and SuperSprint options; Sprint 500-yard swim/15.5-mile bike/5K run, SuperSprint 200yd swim/7.3mi bike/1mi run. The race venue is beautiful Lake Nokomis in the heart of Minneapolis.

Consistently ranked by local triathletes as one of the top three triathlons in this triathlon-crazy state, the YWCA Women’s Tri consistently pulls over 1000 women in every year.

The YWCA Women’s Tri is “go to” event for hundreds of first timers as well as attracting many of the most competitive women in the state. The race offers unparalleled training support through a free training plan, free clinics, and an abundance of training classes, including mini-triathlons and open water swim clinics. Nearly half the women choose “buddy” waves where they are guaranteed a transition spot and wave assignment with a buddy or group of buddies, if they choose.

Other unique elements include novice swim caps, numerous “noodle” swimmers and lifeguards, family awards (sister-sister, mother-daughter, life partners) and the ever-popular "Friends and Family Finish Zone" that allows kids and family members to cross the finish line with their moms, aunts and grandmas. Finally, the race prides itself on running a "green" race, boasting a very low waste rate (93% of waste is diverted to compost and recycling).
