About Us

The Columbia Triathlon Association was initially founded in 1983 when a small group of 90 triathlon enthusiasts signed up to participate in the inaugural, signature event, The Columbia Triathlon, which took place in the Spring of 1984.

The vision of the organization quickly became to produce endurance events, especially triathlons, at the highest possible levels of challenge, safety, and integrity, and to make lasting and positive contributions to participating athletes, to the sport of triathlon, and to our community at large.

Since those early days TriColumbia, has grown to be widely regarded as the Mid-Atlantic’s premier endurance event production company which provides an array of events for all ability levels across the triathlon/multisport continuum.

As a non-profit 501(c)(3), TriColumbia not only makes a difference for participating athletes by providing superior events and memories to last a lifetime, but also gives back to our community by supporting many local and regional charities, which provide a full spectrum of support for citizens in need.  TriColumbia donates both in direct contributions as well as by providing fundraising team racing opportunities for charities.  Team in Training, Challenged Athletes Foundation, The Blazeman Foundation for ALS, and The YMCA are among the many charities we support.
