Athletes enter from the Beach into the Sea of Cortez and follow a clockwise pattern for the swim course, keeping the buoys on their left. If the water temperature is 82.0 degrees or higher, the use of wetsuits is prohibited for safety purposes.
The bike course is a flat looped course on resort roads, which are “secure” but not completely closed to traffic. The Sprint Triathlon is 1 loop, while the Olympic Triathlon consists of three.
The Run course takes place on the beautiful rolling cart paths of the Las Palomas Beach & Golf resort’s gold course. The 5k & 10K races use the same course as the triathlons. Be sure to follow your color tape! Olympic & 10K = Blue tape. Sprint & 5K = Yellow Tape.
