About Us

Martha Pam Mindy FacesTriLaVie® Triathlon and Runing is a training organization for women in Orange County, California providing an array of coached programs in swim, bike, run and race preparation. We welcome all levels of athletes!

What does TriLaVie® mean? In a general sense, TriLaVie means Life Through Triathlon. Keeping a balance in life and training, we use triathlon to enhance our fitness, vitality, social connections and confidence.  When is triathlon not really about triathlon at all?  Virtually always! It’s great to swim, bike and run our way to the finish line with a personal best effort! But, the lessons we learn about ourselves along the way and the strength we build inside ourselves to use in our everyday lives provides the greatest value. Come and TriLaVie with us!

welcomes the beginner triathlete and encourages her to train for an entry-level distance triathlon.  These Sprint triathlons are either in a pool or open water and comprise a 0.5 mile swim + 12 mile bike + 3 mile run, but some are less mileage!

TriLaVie® Intermediate triathletes and advanced triathletes train for Sprint triathlons as well as the endurance distances of Olympic or International (51.50 kilometers), Half Ironman (70.3 miles) and Ironman (140.6 miles)
