Caitlin Begg


Caitlin Begg founded YoungTri on January 8th, 2011. As an avid triathlete for seven years (now ten!), Caitlin wanted to take her love of the sport to the next level.

Caitlin is a sophomore at Harvard University and completed her first Ironman (Lake Placid) this summer at age 18. She did her first 70.3, the inaugural Rev3 race, at age 14. She is involved with Swim Across America, a charity dedicated to raising money and awareness for cancer research, prevention and treatment through swimming related events. She runs her own Swim Across America event in her hometown each summer and “Team Begg” was named National Team of the Week. Caitlin has raised over $75,000 to date for Swim Across America.

Caitlin is a Co-Captain of the Triathlon Team at Harvard.

As a former contributor to Lava Magazine online and member of the Glen Rock Triathlon Club, Caitlin has experienced triathlon’s growth over the past ten years. She founded YoungTri to connect young triathletes worldwide.
