In 1999, three friends from Seattle who loved to play a variety of sports decided to create a new one: the Team Triathlon. The idea was to play a tournament which tested your ability at a number of different sports; not just one. The first Team Tri was held in Seattle with 6 teams in 1999. In 2002 Soccer was added to Ultimate, Volleyball and Football making it a Quadrathlon. The format has largely remained unchanged since then. In the past 6 years, 13 events have been played involving over 220 teams. Teams play 20 minute games of the 4 sports 3 times, against a different team each time - 12 games over 4 hours (best record wins) - and trust us, by the end, you'll be tired.
5 Friends, 4 Hours, 4 Sports - what better way to spend a day?
