About This Activity

Carpinteria is a beautiful California beach town on the Central Coast located between Santa Barbara and Ventura.

The Carpinteria Beach, known as the “World’s Safest Beach,” is very special and has been rated the #1 swimming beach in California, due mostly to its Southern exposure and its protection by the Channel Islands. Swimmers will usually enjoy small surf and the absence of riptides at our unique beach.

The bike course, an open course and large loop, travels along the foothills offering some spectacular ocean views. Both the olympic and sprint courses offer the participant a challenging ride, although the sprint course is also very well suited for the novice triathlete.

The run course, also an open course, winds through some quaint Carpinteria neighborhoods and is mostly a flat loop course.

The Carpinteria Triathlon is a benefit event for the City’s Parks & Recreation youth programs. Proceeds will help to provide scholarships and additional equipment for programs such as Junior Lifeguards and our ocean recreation programs
