In only its second year, the award winning Hand & Stone Women’s Philadelphia Triathlon presented by Inspira Health has sold out. This marks two consecutive sell outs for the women only pool triathlon. The inaugural event sold out in 7 months.
“Truthfully, we are not surprised by the event selling out in early February. We knew this race was special when the first athlete checked their bike into transition last year. The city, the venue, the athletes, and the energy were above and beyond everyone’s expectations,” stated Stephen Del Monte, founder of DelMoSports. “To be able to produce this event in the city where I once lived and worked is truly an honor.”
The Hand & Stone Women’s Philadelphia Triathlon is the first event to utilize the historic Kelly Pool in Fairmont Park for the swim portion of the event, rather than hosting the swim in the Schuylkill River as other triathlons have done in the past. “The #1 limiting factor in triathlon is the fear of open water swimming and utilizing Kelly Pool immediately casts those fears aside,” said Del Monte. “Our athletes’ engagement and encouragement of one another is what makes the Hand & Stone Women’s Philadelphia Triathlon the premier all women’s triathlon in the region.”
