Not long after professional triathlete Lewis Elliot's mother passed away from breast cancer, his Scottsdale triathlon club partnered with Susan G. Komen Central and Northern Arizona to raise funds for research and awareness initiatives. Since then, their set of women-only races, known as Tri 4 the Cure, has raised over $200,000. The events are held at the Phoenix Swim Club at 40th and Stanford in Paradise Valley. The 5k is flat and fun running out and back on the SRP canal with one water station available. The other events of the day include a triathlon and duathlon. The festive finish line for all events is in one place complete with finisher medals and food. Sponsors will be onsite with giveaways and awards are given to top 3 in each age division.
