Welcome to the 4th Annual 27 Hour Triathlon and Duathlon

Human Trafficking is modern-day slavery victimizing an estimated 27 million people worldwide. One way to begin to tackle the issue and bring freedom to all is to make everyone aware of the problem and how to identify a potential victim. The purpose of this endurance event is to bring attention to the issue and mobilize athletes to take action.

The 27 Hour Triathlon is owned and managed by the non-profit organization, Tri 4 Freedom Inc. For more information about human trafficking and Tri 4 Freedom please visit our website!
