WHAT IS TRUATHLETE?
TruAthlete is a three-sport triathlon-style tournament involving competition in flag football, soccer, and volleyball. Teams of 7-10 (at least 3 women) will compete in a March Madness style tournament throughout the day for cash prizes and the crown, TruAthlete. There will be two divisions, Division I for elite athletes, and Division II for those looking for a new and exciting challenge.

Truathlete events will begin in Seattle with plans to spread to cities around the world. If you believe in competition, unity, and getting involved on the ground floor of something special, feel free to support us. If not, hmm... :)

WHO IS TRUATHLETE FOR?
Although competitors must be 18 or older, TruAthlete is for everyone and is a family friendly event. There will be tons of great activities and entertainment for people of all ages. A $10 general admission ticket will get you access to: live music, a beer garden featuring the best northwest brews, new and exciting local vendors, delicious food, competitive activities, raffle prizes, and much more. Celebrities in both the sports and entertainment industries will be on hand for autographs and photo ops with fans.

WHO IS BEHIND TRUATHLETE? CAN WE PULL IT OFF?
Hell yes we can pull it off. We have an incredibly talented team of dedicated and hardworking, ass kicking individuals that for the last several months have been eating, sleeping, and breathing TruAthlete to ensure a killer event. While you were at home sound asleep, we were pulling all-nighters to make sure we have the best team of talent, the best music, the best beer, the best of everything for TruAthlete.
