This is the third year of this series of triathlon races
that will take place on eight (8) Thursday Nights at 6:30pm (a few will start
at 6:15pm) throughout the spring & summer at beautiful Portofino Island

These races are "Super Sprint" triathlons, meaning
they are shorter than a typical triathlon "Sprint" race.They are also official USA Triathlon
The Portofino Sunset Tri Series presented by Infinity
Bicycles is designed for all triathlon abilities - especially brand new
athletes!There will be one overall time

max participants will be 60 athletes per event.There will be no "age" groups, and the swim start will consist
of two wave starts: all males followed by all females three minutes afterwards.
Wetsuits will only be permitted if water temp is 78o or colder.
It's a GREAT opportunity to
"try" a tri, hone your skills before an upcoming race, or enjoy a fun
"race experience" during the week with friends.
All athletes must understand that this is an OPEN COURSE
which means athletes MUST obey all traffic laws during bike portion of
event.Failure to do so could be
