Ten years and over 2,000 athletes!  The Shyann Kindness Project's Annual "Tri" for Acts of Kindness SPRINT Tri/Du/5K Run/Walk has grown and blossomed to be one of Tucson's premier athletic events. This year we are incorporating a Toy Drive as part of the registration process to help us provide Kindness Gift packages for the 24 events we host annually for underprivileged and medically fragile children.

If this is your first Triathlon, Duathlon or 5K, or if you are you getting ready for a full Triathlon, Duathlon or a Marathon, our 10th Annual SPRINT Triathlon/Duathlon and 5K Run/Walk just might be the perfect event to get you warmed up and tuned up!

Perfect distances for First Timers and Beginners and fun and relaxed for more experienced triathletes, duathletes and runners!

What Our Event Supports: The Shyann Kindness Project (TSKP) is a 100% volunteer organization that has served more than 25,000 underprivileged, at-risk, and/or medically fragile children since 2006. Our Kindness Gift-Giving Events are both a teaching and gifting program that takes place throughout the year at venues including low-income schools, shelters, group homes, Head Start programs, homeless meal programs, and TMC's Pediatric Emergency Center.

Annual events include "Backpack Night" for children in the Sunnyside Neighborhood and a Christmas party for 200 children plus their parents or caregivers that takes place at a different school each year.
