Santa Barbara Long Course Triathlon & Aquabike
Date: 8/26/2017

The Santa Barbara Long Course Triathlon is one of the most beautiful and challenging courses in the country. Its unique distance attracts a variety of athletes and provides a great opportunity for those transitioning from Olympic distance to the longer Half Ironman distance. The start line offers panoramic views of Santa Barbara’s famous “American Riviera,” the Channel Islands and the beautiful Stearns Wharf. Our swim takes place on the protected shores of East Beach.The swim parallels the beach and finishes adjacent to the transition area. The bike route follows the coast heading up into the American Riviera overlooking Santa Barbara, Montecito and Carpinteria. The out and back course includes everything a cyclist will love; long flat straights, challenging hills and even a downhill or two to rest. The run course cruises the beachfront. You’ll meander by the wharf, the marina and Leadbetter Beach. You’ll also experience some ups and downs as you pass through parks and quiet beach-side residential neighborhoods. The course is out and back and will typically reward you with a tail wind pushing you to the finish line. Music, refreshments, food and friends await your return.

Swim -- 1 Mile, Bike -- 34 Miles, Run (unless doing the Aquabike) -- 10 Miles
