As the situation surrounding COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to evolve, we are writing to provide an update on Santa Barbara Triathlon, which is scheduled for August 22 & 23. Please know that the health, safety and well-being of you and the community at large is our highest priority.
Santa Barbara Triathlon, Inc. will be in contact with the local authorities in Santa Barbara County. We are aware of the recommendation by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States through mid-May. We will continue to monitor their recommendations.
We are taking these circumstances into close consideration, and at this time, a final decision has not yet been made on whether Santa Barbara Triathlon will continue as planned. Any changes to the status of the event will be communicated to athletes immediately.
We appreciate your understanding as we work through this dynamic and ever-changing situation, while keeping your safety at the forefront of all decision-making. We understand the hours you have dedicated to training for this race and the difficulty of dealing with this uncertainty. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly with questions or immediate concerns.

Long Course and Sprint Course Events
August 21st thru the 23rd 2020!
Not just another pretty race! The Santa Barbara Triathlon delivers unique distances, an event site to die for and a vibe that is both fun and friendly. We have an unparalleled variety of course options to choose from, and every participant gets a T-shirt, finisher medal, lunch and more. Established in 1981, ours is one of the longest-running independently owned triathlons in the world. And it’s no wonder: Stunning scenery, flawless operations and an oceanfront transition area and finish line ensure a sellout event every year.
