Philadelphia is one of the best cities for both urban and natural trails.

We have big news for all the fit females of Pennsylvania who are up for a challenge. 

The only women-only triathlon in the state has recently opened registrationIt's a new event from DelMoSports, a company that primarily hosts races along the Jersey Shore and in Delaware. 

The Women's Philadelphia Triathlon will take place in Philly's Fairmount Park on Sunday, July 8.

No one has to take a dip in the Schuylkill River, though. This triathlon will feature an outdoor pool swim.
