About This Activity
The BridgeFest Triathlon will be the first ever swim/bike/run multisport event in Hancock County, Mississippi. To celebrate, we will raffle for thousands of dollars in race gear and major race entries including products from XTerra, TYR, XLAB and more at the awards ceremony. Race entry raffles include a World Triathlon Corporation Ironman event! Your registration includes a ticket and you can buy more!
Known as "Mississippi's West Coast", Hancock County is already a favorite training ground for triathletes from New Orleans to Mobile because of the well-paved beach road, traffic-free boardwalk, and calm Gulf waters which provide ideal conditions for multi-sport athletes.
This race will be a perfect late-season tune-up race in between the longer One Coast Olympic Tri held in Ocean Springs in August and Ironman Augusta 70.3 in late September or Ironman Florida in November. If you've never done a triathlon, this race is considered a shorter race with a near-shore swim. If you need to you will be able to stand up in the water.
Your race registration also gets you into BridgeFest, voted "Mississippi Event of the Year"!
The county seat, Bay Saint Louis, lefts around the Old Town area. Bay Saint Louis is full of restaurants, galleries, bed and breakfast inns, a harbor and award-winning festivals which have earned it a spot among BudgetTravel.com's "America's Top 3 Coolest Small Towns". Fit First racing looks forward to sharing one of the best kept secrets in the multisport world with you! The race is part of the regional Bay BridgeFest Music Festival with headliners North Mississippi Allstars and your registration includes entry into BridgeFest.
