Welcome to the Brett Robinson Alabama Coastal Triathlon on the beautiful Alabama Gulf Coast!
Team Magic is very excited to be working with the cities of Orange Beach and Gulf Shores to bring you this great destination triathlon for a 7th year. The event will be staged at The Hangout for the 5th year - expect not only a fabulous race venue but also a great beach party!
The swim course for the Alabama Coastal Distance is 1.5 k in the Gulf of Mexico.
The course will be managed by local water safety groups with plenty of rescue support and assistance.
Should the water not be safe for any reason, race management will change the race from a triathlon to a duathlon with the swim being replaced by a 1 mile run.
For the new "tri it on" the swim will be 300 yards.
The bike course is 40k / 24.8 miles for the Alabama Coastal Distance. Bikers head east/right on Perdido Beach Blvd (Hwy 182) from the transition area at The Hangout.
The first bike turnaround is a "loop underneath" the PASS which is a large bridge over Gulf Water. Volunteers and police will direct you off of Perdido Beach Blvd. just on the other side of the bridge.
You will proceed under the bridge then will be directed back across the bridge heading west on Perdido Beach Blvd.
As you head back toward the race staging area, you will be directed right on State Park Road 2 to a turnaround on State Park Road 2, then a right turn (west) back onto Perdido Beach Blvd. (Hwy 182) to the race transition area.
There will be a BIKE MOUNT / DISMOUNT LINE. You will walk your bike from your space on the transition bike rack to the BIKE MOUNT line to begin the bike segment.
At the finish of your bike segment, you will DISMOUNT at the same line and walk your bike back to your space on the transition bike rack.
The bike course for the "tri it on" will be a 10 mile total out and back course going east from the Hangout to State Park Road 2, going left to a turnaround, back to the Beach Blvd. (Hwy 182) and west back to The Hangout.
The run course for Alabama Coastal is a 10k / 6.2 mile course out and back on the Beach Blvd. headed west to a turnaround and back to the main staging area adjacent to The Hangout.
For the new "tri it on" - the run will be one mile out west of The Hangout and one mile back to The Hangout on Beach Blvd.
