The organizers of the Kiawah Island Golf Resort Marathon and Half Marathon are thrilled to announce the new Kiawah Island Golf Resort Triathlon. Tri-Kiawah will be a USAT sanctioned intermediate distance competition featuring a .7-mile swim, 24-mile bike and 6-mile run. This race is currently the only intermediate distance triathlon in the Charleston area to feature an ocean swim.
The competition kicks off with the .7-mile point to- point swim in the vast, beautiful and calm Atlantic waters off Kiawahs stunning coastline. The bike and run portions of the race take athletes along the scenic marshland, maritime forest and beachfront, allowing participants to capture the unique essence of Kiawah Island. Transition zone will take place in Night Heron Park, a 21-acre spectator and family friendly park at the heart of Kiawah Island.
The Kiawah Island Golf Resort Triathlon will not only test beginner triathletes, but seasoned competitors alike in a unique environment that showcases Kiawahs diverse natural habitats and unparalleled beauty.
