Frequently Asked Questions

Is this race beginner friendly?
Yes! The race is completely flat and the volunteers are super friendly! Swimming in the bay makes it easier on folks new to swimming. If you're not yet comfortable swimming open water, we will have swim buddies available to swim with you. The bike and run are both pancake flat (the biggest hill is a speed bump).  Come out and join us for your first triathlon!
Is the park pet friendly?
The park allows pets until 9am, after that pets are prohibited. Service animals are always welcome!
Where can I park?
There are plenty of parking lots along Mission Bay Drive. Check out our "Getting Here" section for more information!
Can I pick up my packet on race morning?
Yes, you can. Though we encourage all racers to pick up their packets at the race expo on Friday or Saturday. Look at our schedule for more information!
