_ The 41st annual Santa Cruz Triathlon:
The Santa Cruz Triathlon is a non-profit event. The race has donated more than $1.5 million to Santa Cruz County high school athletic programs, UC Santa Cruz Swim Program, Cabrillo College's athletic programs, Santa Cruz Track Club and Santa Cruz Triathlon Association in its 40 years — including another big year of $84,000 in 2022. Students from these schools serve as race-day volunteers. Your participation in this event is appreciated!

Our Sprint Triathlon Course is the best sprint race in NorCal. The course — 700 yard swim, 12 mile bike and 3.1 mile run — is ideal for beginners or returning racers not quite up for a full Olympic distance triathlon.
Sorry, athletes under 12 years of age will not be allowed to compete in the Sprint. Racers must be 14 for all other events.
The one-mile Open Water Swim race course is clockwise around the Wharf from the Boardwalk to Cowell Beach. There will be one wave, including men and women. The race will take place around 8:30 a.m., after the Olympic Triathletes have started.
