This is a weekend to celebrate multi-sport activities in Chattanooga! The Scenic City is one of 10 cities in the world that is home to both the Full Ironman and 70.3 races, and hundreds of triathletes from around the country now come to our city to enjoy training here, in what is arguably the triathlon capital of the Southeast.
The dates of Tri-Nooga 2022 are Friday, August 26th – Sunday, August 28th. You can choose to participate in whatever activities you would like. Of course the more you do the more fun you will have!
