In addition to Junior (age 6-10) and Senior (age 11-16) triathlons, the event also hosted an elite level race where 20 of the country's top Youth athletes participated in a draft legal format race.

Along with the youth races, the event included the first USA Triathlon Mixed Team relay event. Thirteen teams of four athletes raced a 100-meter swim, 3-mile bike and 1-mile run in a fun, energetic atmosphere.

The event featured a strong field including a team of top tier athletes from the Madison, Wisconsin area that resulted in a closely contested battle with a local team.

The local team consisting of Ryan Giuliano, Victoria Clinton, Alex Arman and Alex Lorenz took control on the run to claim the overall victory.
