About This Activity

NEW FOR 2016 - This will be a USAT Sanctioned Triathlon, Duathlon, and Aquabike!  

The Solana Beach Triathlon, Duathlon & Aquabike invites you to an epic day living the active lifestyle!

This fantastic event is made even more special by its idyllic location…Fletcher Cove at Solana Beach. Iconic Southern California at its best. The surf-entry ocean swim is supported by lifeguards and swim buddies. The bike and run courses cruise down the world famous Pacific Coast Highway. Finally, a tunnel of high-fives awaits you at the finish line - a gauntlet of excitement. This is a sprint triathlon/duathlon/aquabike that will be remembered.
