About the Event

Come be a part of the 2X MN Tri of the Year, the Hopkins Royal Triathlon held at beautiful Shady Oak Beach on the border of Hopkins/Minnetonka, MN. Compete in a traditional sprint distance, or for those newer to the sport or who have limitations, try our shorter mini-sprint option, where you choose either the longer or shorter distances. Either way, you'll be treated like royalty!
