About One More Tri
What is the Event?
One More Tri is more than a race – it’s a Unified Triathlon Experience where triathletes of all skill levels compete side-by-side with Special Olympics athletes. This race is inspired by a simple principle: the act of competing together ensures a quick path to understanding, acceptance and friendship. One More Tri is the only Unified Triathlon in New Jersey.
We Need Volunteers!
One More Tri wouldn't be possible without the hundreds of volunteers who offer their time, energy and talent to help every One More Tri athlete achieve their dreams.
I am writing to thank and commend you for a wonderful wonderful event. Every single person I encountered was so kind, encouraging, enthusiastic, invested in the cause. It was really inspiring.
The course was flawless, the instructions were impossible to confuse. Everything was organized, and I don't think a single person whom I asked a question replied with, "I don't know". A lot of the volunteers were silly and made us all smile. There was one super crazy lady at transition exit who never stopped dancing. Bike course volunteers were all super competent. Run course volunteers were full of words and cheers. All ages and sizes. The bunches of students were extra funny, and since I was going slow, I did take the time to be silly back, and tell them they were appreciated.
EXTRA APPRECIATED: gluten free options at the end! I think that was the best cheese sandwich I ever had. What a thing to have thought of.
I wanted to let you know the event was totally appreciated and enjoyed, and I'm recommending it to everyone.- Heidi F., 2019 Participant and Triathlon Newbie
