We are working with USAT to transfer the regional paratri championship to the 2021 event. In addition to all of our regular registration categories the race will play host to the USAT West Paratriathlon Regional Championships.
This is one of the best races on the central coast – fun, scenic, and the bike ride is on a totally closed course – in it’s 14th year in 2019. . There’s something for everyone at Tri Santa Cruz – and International (Olympic) distance triathlon and Aquabike, Sprint distance triathlon and aquabike, Clydesdale and Athena categories and relay teams for both distances. Plus, an Aquathlon with either a sprint (750 m swim/5k run) or Olympic (1500m swim/10k run) distance.
In 2018 we added two Duathlon distances to the, both with an initial 5K Run, followed by either the sprint or Olympic distance bike ride, and wrapping up with another 5K Run.
Do you want to race in the same wave as your sister, son, daughter, cousin, boyfriend/girlfriend, spouse or friend without having to start in a competitive age group wave? If so then the Family and Friends wave is for you. It’s the sprint race with it’s own wave start. You’ll get all the same race goodies but you won’t be eligible for age group prizes.
You can’t have much more fun on a summer morning than this. You have to check it out and it’s a great event for first time triathletes to launch their race career!

Dip & Dash Swim-Run and Team Challenge – Cancelled for 2020. Date TBD for 2021
There are three individual distances for the aquathlon event and a team challenge category. The three individual distances are: 350m swim and 1.25 mile run, 750m swim and 4 mile run, or 1500m swim and 4 mile run.
Based on feedback from last year, the team challenge will be re-structured from previous years – Each distance will have an optional team component where teams can compete against each other for the fastest overall team times. Unlike last year’s mixed team format, ALL team members will start together for each distance and the team with the shortest cumulative time will win. For example a group, family, or club can create one or more “teams” who would compete for the lowest overall score. We will do an award in each distance for the fastest all male and female teams and one for the fastest mixed team. The catch is that you have to create your team and declare that team at the time of registration, or prior to the race. No fair deciding on race morning to join a “team” because you’ve sized up the competition. So choose your teams for fun or competition. All team members do the same distance event (this eliminates the having to tag off like last year, and keeps all the swimmers in a group rather than one or two swimmers alone in the water). During registration you will be given the option of creating a team, giving it a name, etc. Just log on as a normal registration, select your preferred distance, create your team and proceed to registration.
Open to all ages 10 and up.
SuperKid Triathlon – Canceled for 2020
SuperKid has always been about building strong bodies and healthy kids. This means getting them off the couch, away from the TV, phones, video games, and outside for some healthy physical activity. It doesn’t matter if your child is already an athlete or is just starting to engage in sports and outdoor activity. This is a great event for the whole family and gives your children the opportunity to be active and healthy. With a swim, bike and run course, real transition area, body markings and fun prizes for participants, you can help your child gain the self esteem that comes from doing their personal best. Not to mention a cool finisher medal and matching shirt.
THE BIKE COURSE IS SUITABLE FOR FAT TIRE, MOUNTAIN BIKES, AND CYCLECROSS BIKES. No road bikes or skinny tires!
Once final results are posted you’ll be able to download an official finisher certificate with event info, age group, total time and place to remember the event.
