Our goal at TriGrandPrix, started in 2010, is to create a safe, professionally organized, world class series of triathlon experiences. TriGrandPrix 2011, hosted six experiences, thus creating a global TriGrandPrix championship. TriGrandPrix 2012 will be run from March to October and will cover different distances. One female and one male triathlete will each be crowned the TriGrandPrix World Champion at the end of the championship.
