We are so excited to be able to host our 3rd Annual event this coming up Memorial Day. We will have a full morning of racing going on with Olympic and Sprint distance Triathlons, Aqua Bikes and Duathlons. This event can be completed as a team or as an individual. Also don’t forget about the 5k and 10k runs across to the other side of the straight on Historic Mare island.
The swim will take place in the Mare Island Straight where the Napa River meets the Bay. The bikers will then cross the Carquinez Straight on the Zampa Bridge into Crockett, and the run course will take the participants across the Mare Island Causeway through the Mare Island Naval Shipyard.
All participants will receive a tech shirt and finishers medal. Awards will be available for Male and Female of every category that has a minimum of three entrants. Teams will be awards in one mixed category and will also need 3 team entries for awards.
Pre-registration will close on May 24th. Day of registration will be available for 10 dollars more than the last price listed during pre-registration, and discounts will not apply.
Course Info: The Swim will take place will be with the current. The bike will take you down Mare Island Way to Sonoma Blvd and across the Carquinez Bridge and back. The run will still continue over to the historic Mare Island Naval Shipyard. Course subject to change for safety reasons if deemed necessary.
The run does take place over a live draw bridge. We are currently working with the city to delay the hours of operation for the bridge.
