We know you can do it.
And we'll be cheering for you every step of the way.
Mighty Mujer began with the launch in late 2010 of a calendar featuring women with their bikes. The Mighty Mujer calendar featured women cyclists as their alteregos, and proceeds from the calendar and launch party benefited the Center Against Family Violence in El Paso. Following the success of the calendar, organizers approached Race El Paso founder Gabriela Gallegos to talk about next steps for the concept. From that collaboration, Mighty Mujer Triathlon was born. Mighty Mujer Triathlon was to be an all-female triathlon, benefiting the Center Against Family Violence.
In 2012, the first Mighty Mujer Triathlon hosted 350 participants. Since then, the event has grown, introducing thousands of women to triathlon. For many, the race has become a rite of passage. Longtime triathletes return each year to experience the Mighty Mujer Triathlon spirit, race a challenging course, and cheer for others along the way. Participants span all backgrounds, ages, and athletic abilities. With the addition of Tucson (and other locations in the works!), Mighty Mujer Triathlon aims to grow the triathlon community and empower women triathletes every step of the way.
