The Albany Community Triathlon
The Albany Community Triathlon (“AlbanyTri”) in Albany, CA, is a beginner-friendly, spectator-friendly Super Sprint triathlon for adults and kids. It takes place at the Albany Aquatics Center and Memorial Park in Albany, CA. Beginner-friendly flat course around the park with a pool swim in your own split lane. There's also a "Super Youth" short course for kids 7-10yo. Proceeds support both Albany Middle school and High School sports programs. More info at http://AlbanyTri.com
Starting in 2008 on the centennial of the City of Albany, CA, the AlbanyTri has been held annually except for 2010 & 2011 when the pool underwent a major renovation. The triathlon aims to promote fitness in the community and showcase just how fun a multisport event can be! The triathlon attracts a wide cross-section of the community and provides a fun & safe atmosphere for all, with some unique features not found in most triathlons.
The Albany Community Triathlon runs on 100% volunteer effort. The race organizers are members of the local community and receive no compensation from their AlbanyTri planning efforts beyond the satisfaction of contributing positively to this great community event. Many of the organizers also participate in the event — paying standard registration fees — to contribute to our fundraising efforts, monitor the event first-hand, and because it’s fun!
We’re always interested in recruiting new people to help out in our AlbanyTri as a volunteer on race day, or in our broader organizational efforts. Interested in joining us? Get in touch.
