California Triathlon's mission is to make the sport of triathlon affordable, accessible, and sustainable. The 4,000 athletes worldwide enjoy the benefits of premium, no-fee membership that includes athlete resources, coaching, and support. Our contribution to the sport is systematically attacking the costs that have given triathlon the reputation as exclusive. Benefits include:

  • FREE MEMBERSHIP: Making membership fees a thing of the past since our founding in 2010.

  • S.P.R.I.N.T. 90 DAY PROGRAM: Beginner athletes receive no cost training plans, mentoring and access to USA Triathlon certified coaching.

  • VOGO (VOLUNTEER ONE, GET ONE): Athletes volunteer at one race and earn a free future race.

  • COACHING SCHOLARSHIPS: $500 awards for Cal Tri Chapter Leads that defray the cost of becoming a USAT coach.

  • $75 CAL TRI KIT PROGRAM: High-quality Voler manufactured, custom garments at high-volume prices.

  • EPIC RIDES: A SAG supported ride series for $5 to $10.

  • GRAND PRIX USA & GRAND PRIX California: Partnerships with grassroots race directors who are "affordable & accessible" friendly.

Families, youth, recent college graduates with high debt, and fixed income seniors are just a few of the economic groups with whom Cal Tri has made significant inroads. Growth of 36% in 2016 is rare in a time when flat is the new up.

California Triathlon is only able to flourish because of the generous support of partners like the Law Firm of Richard L. Duquette, who recently became a California Triathlon Gold Level Sponsor.
