Swim (Triathlon only):
Is this race entirely on the beach?
Yes, aside from swimming in the ocean, you will bike and run on the hard flat beach.
Are headphones allowed?
No, please refrain from using headphones during the bike and run portion this event.
What type of bike do I need?
You may use any type bike you prefer – but we recommend a fat tire bike (eg., mtn. bike, beach cruiser, hybrid…) for best handling.
Are wetsuits allowed?
Yes, this race is not sanctioned by USAT – so wetsuits are always allowed – no matter the water temperature.
Is there an age limit to compete?
All swimmers must be 15 years old on race day. So, a triathlete racing solo has to be at least 15 on race day. But, team members may be under 15 if they are the biker or runner (and, the swimmer is at least 15).
Does the Duathlon and Triathlon start at the same time?
Yes, when the triathletes start the swim - the duathletes will start their 1st run.
