Men and women of all ages, whether seasoned pros or first-timers, are encouraged to participate in this equally exciting mini version of our renowned long course. The calm ocean swim, relatively flat bike and flat run make for a perfect introduction to the sport of triathlon.
Please check the Divisions Page for participant division options and Cut-off time information.
We offer a Parent Child Division for this event. [Details]
500 yard Swim: Quick and easy, the ocean swim parallels the beach. The average water temperature is 64 degrees. Wetsuits are optional but getting them off may negate any time advantages of wearing one.
6 Mile Bike The course is very fast and nearly flat (with the exception of one decent-sized hill near the Four Seasons Biltmore). Carry the water you need, as this out-and-back course goes so quickly there's no time for a water station.
Obey all traffic laws this is an open course. Please note that event volunteers are not able to disrupt or instruct the flow of traffic. Do not take instruction regarding your right-of-way from anyone other than a City Police officer or California Highway Patrol officer.
2 Mile Run: One mile out, one mile back it's that simple. You can get water at mile one if you dare to slow down.
The Co-Ed Sprint and Women-Only Sprint transition areas will be separated again this year.
Co-Ed athletes can expect the transition area to be open at 5:30 AM. You will be called to the start line at 6:50 AM. Please remember you will not be allowed to enter the transition area until the Women's-Only event is coming to an end. Please prepare accordingly by setting aside clothing to change into after you finish. We will let you into the area as soon as we can. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
