TriSports.com was founded in the summer of 1999 while Seton Claggett was on a long training ride in the deserts of Tucson, AZ. In training for his first Ironman, he had a hard time finding a local source for triathlon equipment. After several hours of baking in the Arizona heat, Seton came up with a grand idea - start an online triathlon store. After all, if he couldn't find all the necessities locally then there had to be others with the same predicament. This was quite a bold thought at the time, as it was the start of the dot-com bust and Seton didn't exactly have the retail experience to run an online store (he was working on his MS in Hydrology at the time). After completing his Ironman he took that extra 20-hours a week he was putting into training and started working on the foundation of what is now TriSports.com. In April of 2000, backed with a strong business plan, TriSports.com launched out of two bedrooms in the Claggett's house. Now occupying a 32,000 sq ft facility housing a state-of-the-art retail store, warehouse, and corporate headquarters, TriSports.com is now supported by 40+ staff members.
