About the Event
The Santa Barbara Triathlon delivers unique distances, an event site to die for and a vibe that is both fun and friendly. They have an unparalleled variety of course options to choose from, and every participant gets a T-shirt, finisher medal, lunch and more. Established in 1981, this is one of the longest-running independently owned triathlons in the world. And it’s no wonder: Stunning scenery, flawless operations and an oceanfront transition area and finish line ensure a sellout event every year.
Participants can select from either our famous long course (including aquabike and team divisions) or one of their sprint courses. Sprint course options include a women’s-only event, parent/child team event (compete side-by-side with your child), the traditional co-ed format, and our new duathlon. They even offer a “just for fun” division for people who want to start at the same time as their friend or family member, rather than their assigned age group.
Stick around after the event for children’s beach activities, a fabulous sports expo and convenient on-site dining.
