The USAT sanctioned Ballwin Triathlon is a 300 yard pool swim, 9 mile bike, and 3.4 mile run. This race is very popular and fills up to capacity almost every year. Be sure to secure your spot early. IT'S BACK this year: the Double Triathlon. If you are looking for a greater challenge, here’s your opportunity!
