2021 Impact Report

Dare2tri is a mission-driven organization, fueled by the dedication of athletes, volunteers, donors, and sponsors. Each year, we release our Impact Report to celebrate what we as a community have accomplished together.

The 2021 Impact Report is comprised of highlights, images, and quotes from our tenth year as an organization. From the growth we’ve experienced to the impact we’ve made, we have so much to celebrate.

A new model for movement

In 2021, Dare2tri adopted a hybrid programming model to meet the ever-growing needs of our community. Virtual training became a year-round offering with several weekly programs available for athletes nationwide. Meanwhile, in-person programs and events safely resumed after a year-long hiatus due to COVID-19.
