Description:

The Sandman Triathlon is one of Santa Cruz Countys oldest triathlons having its inaugural race way back in 1985 in the infancy days of the sport.  The Sandman was originally conceived by the Santa Cruz State Parks Lifeguard Association to be a positive Aptos community event that would raise funds for the local State Parks Junior Lifeguard program, including providing scholarships for kids from low-income families that otherwise could not afford the cost of the 4-week program.   Over the past 28 years, thousands of dollars have been raised for this scholarship fund to provide high quality water safety education to hundreds of Santa Cruz County youth.   In addition to the great fundraising cause, the Sandman is one of the most scenic and beautiful courses you will find. Another signature feature of the Sandman is the beautiful and handcrafted awards given out for top finishers in each division.   Because the Sandman is a sprint triathlon and designed to be a super fun and family friendly event, it is the perfect triathlon experience for athletes that are new to the sport.  The Sandman Triathlon is a USAT sanctioned event.  

Course Information:
You'll start out with a .75-mile ocean swim in the Monterey Bay around the world famous cement ship, followed by a scenic 13-mile bike course through Aptos, Seascape, and Rio Del Mar. A 4-mile beach run caps what is commonly described as one of the best triathlon experiences that California has to offer.
Directions:
Parking will be at the Seacliff State beach parking lots off of State Park Drive. If you choose to park inside the park, the fee is $10. Outside the park, parking is free. Make sure you park in a legal parking space and give yourself enough time to walk to the race area.
