About This Activity

We'd like to invite you to join us for the second annual Vineman Monte Rio! With the popularity of triathlon never being greater, when presented with the opportunity to stage this Olympic Distance Triathlon in such a beautiful area, we jumped at it. The 1.5K Swim, 40K Bike and 10K Run is the perfect distance for an early summer race, and Monte Rio's old-fashioned summer vacation atmosphere makes it the perfect place to hold it. We hope you'll join us for the second annual event!

In the heart of Monte Rio a 1950's style neon sign spans the road. It reads, "Welcome To Monte Rio, Vacation Wonderland." The backdrop of thousand year old redwoods, the lazy Russian River, and the timeless beauty of Sonoma County's coastal river region, is reminescent of a family vacation you took as a kid. Remember the one where you loaded up the station wagon with camping gear & your entire family? Every morning you ate pancakes outdoors then you spent your days skipping rocks. Now, fast-forward forty years, add a state-of-the-art triathlon, and you have the recipe for creating a new memory, with an old-fashioned flavor.

The 1.5K Swim will be staged in the Russian River, just four miles downstream from Johnson's Beach, the venue where the other Vineman Triathlon events have been held for more than two decades. The 40K Bike course follows the Russian River to the picturesque coastal town of Jenner and back. The 10K Run is held on the course that once was the home of the Moscow Road Race, a popular run from the running boom days of the 1970's. The run course is flat, fast, and shaded almost the entire way.
