HomeInformationResourcesMembershipTeam TriYouthalon



Fighting childhood obesity through exercise is the mission of TriYouthalon, which provides a mechanism for the entire family to participate in swimming, bicycling and running. Families become stronger as they set goals and support one another while exercising. They encourage one another to be the best that they can be, and in so doing, become stronger as a family. And strong families are an awesome thing!

2013 Fairmount Park - Daughter and Dad Participants TriYouthalon, Philadelphia Parks & Recreation and our sponsors will roll out training programs designed to help each member of the family. We are working with many community organizations to encourage more physical activity, personal responsibility for health and knowledge of healthy food choices. You can stay informed with TriYouthalon’s free membership. (Please remember your email address is safe with us!)


This year our races are organized for family participation. Please tab to the race you are interested in to learn more.
