Packet Pick-Up & Sports Expo

Wave Start Details:: We typically do not post the wave start details on the website because invariably there is a last minute change. Your specific wave details and time will be given to you when you pick up your packet. We typically start the faster groups first so that there is less of an issue with passing slower athletes on the course. Wave starts are posted Friday at Packet pick-up.

What time do I need to be out of the transition area and ready to swim? 
Your transition area should be set and you should be ready to swim when the first wave in your event is scheduled to begin. Wave times will be posted at the packet pick-up. We do NOT set these in advance.Sunday participants should note the following: 
Co-ed Sprint Athletes: You should be aware that you will not be able to enter back into the transition area until approximately 9:00am. This is due to the fact that the Women-Only event will still be going on within the transition. We will let you in as soon as it is safe. You should prepare accordingly. Set some warm clothes aside (outside of the transition area).
Women-Only & Parent/Child Athletes: Your event begins when the Co-Ed athletes are all out of the water, your exact start time is difficult to determine. We have estimated it at 8:00am. You should be out of your transition area and at the start line by that time. Packet Pick-up/Check-in closes at 7:30am. Dont show up late and spend too much time in the transition area. We’ll start without you – we won’t want to, but we will.

Post Event Party, Fun, & Food

When you’ve completed the event you’ll finish on one of California’s most beautiful beaches. We’ll have music, lots of triathlon gear, vendors and great food to help you celebrate your achievement. Plan on hanging out and enjoying Santa Barbara. You might even decide to play a little volleyball on one of the twelve courts just up the beach.
