How it all Began
Tri4Change was founded in Beijing, China in 2014 by a group of like minded teachers who wanted to make a difference. Vic Caban, founder of Tri4Change, and his original team of Kirk Leichner, Hadleigh Crysell, RiAnn Caban, and Anna Sarty, began with a vision and the intention to spread this idea around the globe.

The swim will happen in the ISK Secondary Campus pool. Locker rooms at the pool will be open for changing. Each triathlete will be assigned 1/2 of a lane (2 swimmers per lane). Swimmers are to swim down and back on the same side of the swim lane, 400m will require touching 16 walls (8 round trips). Lap counters will be on deck to assure swimmers complete the correct number of lengths. Upon finishing the swim triathletes will exit the pool area and proceed to the transition area. Maximum swim time is 15 minutes. If a triathlete is still swimming at that time, they will be asked to proceed to the transition area and begin the bike portion of the race.
The bike course is five loops (each loop is 2km) through and around the school. Please note that traffic will not be halted on any of the public roads. Spotters will be present at various points to assist with the safety and direction of our triathletes, but you are advised to ride with a high sense of awareness and diligence. All triathletes must wear a bicycle helmet.
The run will be two loops (1.5km each loop) around the school. The triathlon race will finish on the ISK school track. Triathletes are advised to run with a high sense of awareness due to passing cars and bicycles.
