TriColumbia Announces All New Iron Girl Rocky Gap Triathlon



You asked for it and we listened!   


Iron Girl Rocky Gap LogoBased on the unprecedented popularity of the Athleta Iron Girl Columbia Triathlon which was named The "Best Women's Event" in the Mid-Atlantic by Competitor Magazine, Best of CompetitorTriColumbia is pleased to present a second Iron Girl Triathlon event on September 9, 2012 at The Rocky Gap State Park in Allegheny County, MD; The Iron Girl Rocky Gap Triathlon. As with the Athleta Iron Girl Columbia Triathlon, this inspirational all women's event is about empowering women toward a healthy lifestyle, and celebrating your unique grace as you journey toward the finish line.


This pristine "girls' get away" venue provides the ideal backdrop for a triumphant race, with the swim taking place in beautiful Lake Habeeb, fed by Rocky Gap Run, which winds its way through an impressive mile-long gorge, displaying sheer cliffs, overlooks and a hemlock forest dense with rhododendron and mountain laurel.

Join other women on the journey to live better, and challenge yourself to be the best that you can be!  


Online registration will open at 3 pm on April 10, 2012. Just visit the Iron Girl Rocky Gap webpage and click on registration to sign up to be part of this inaugural event.  


The Athleta Iron Girl Columbia 1/2 Marathon and Coed 5K benefiting The Claudia Mayer Cancer Resource Center takes place in about 1 month, and there are still slots available, so sign up today for another great Iron Girl experience. 


Finalize your race calendar. Openings are also still available in the following 2012 races. Sign up today for your favorite, and help TriColumbia assist our worthy charity partners. The majority of your TriColumbia race entry fees are tax deductible.

Train safely, and we'll see YOU at the finish line!


Celebrate Life!
