About This Activity

What do you do when you have a classic long course triathlon and a lot of time between when the bikes leave transition and the runners go out on the course?  Well, you don't let all that course set up just sit there waiting for some create an event for runners who want participate in their own half marathon, minus the swim and bike!

This is for you if: 

  • You don't like to get up early - the start time is 9:30am
  • You have a friend or family member doing the triathlon and you're looking for a way to get your workout in and have a great time while you wait.
  • You're looking for a beautiful and scenic run course that is 90% along the ocean. 

Everyone doing the half marathon gets their own unique shirt and finisher medal.  You get to participate in the finish line party and cheer in the triathletes or wait for your favorite triathlete to finish.
