A very fun event for all multisport fans is coming again this spring to Encinitas!

I encourage all of my patients to try this very fun event. It's a great way to get involved in other sports you do not normally excel in. Time to join that master's swim team, join the Trek ride group, or hang out at Movin Shoes on Monday!

  the Encinitas Triathlon!

The Event

THE BASICS

EST has 4 different racing categories on Sunday, the Sprint Triathlon, the Super Sprint Triathlon, the Beach Duathlon, and the Sprint Triathlon Relay. Awards are given 3 deep for both men and women in each age category as well as in the Elite Sprint division. All finishers receive a finishers medal and all participants receive a athlete bag with an event t-shirt and other sponsor products.

For example, if you are 39 and turn 40 in November, youwill race in the 40-44 year old age group. More information can be found on the USA Triathlon website.
