BE is dedicated to fostering the growth of the sports we love. We understand that the biggest limiter for the growth in road triathlon is the swim. Once you move into off-road triathlon, you must contend with people being nervous about the swim and the mountain bike. Our BEginner friendly off-road triathlon is geared towards those athletes who are looking for something new to experience within endurance sports but are timid about off-road racing.
