The Trans Am Triathlon originated from crazy discussions during the 2013 Triple DECA Iron race in Lake Garda, Italy. As athletes covered thousands and thousands of loops swimming, cycling and running, the idea of a point-to-point triathlon across the US seemed pretty cool.
TransAmTri will be a unique semi-supported triathlon consisting of support and self-supported sections. With the increasing trend toward the self-supported bikepack and running global racing scene, the concept follows some of the same rules.
The event starts at Historic Lucky’s Lake Swim, Florida (Lake Cane) on May 25, 2021 and ends at Point Mugu State Park, California (ocean coast), a total length of 3,481 miles (Swim 31 miles > Bike 3,150 miles > Run 310 miles). Racers will pass through St. Tammany Parish.
