About This Activity



The new bike course for the Liv/giant Mermaid Tri & Du Capitola features a flatter course, more bike lanes and a gradual climb into the coastal redwoods!


One of the best All Women's Triathlons on the west coast. The City of Capitola is the perfect venue offering an ocean swim around the wharf, views of the pacific, fun bike course featuring a gradual climb into the coastal redwoods followed by a run on the ocean bluff overlooking the town.

mini mermaid girls 1 mile "beach dash"

Our venue in Capitola is all about the beach and there's nothing better than watching the mini mermaids participate in the annual "beach dash!" The one mile beach dash is a 2 loop run from the finish area out along the hard pack sand to the end of the beach and back. Register your mini online for $15.00 or you can sign them up on race day for $20.00.
