Course Info: The swim course (in yellow) consists of a 1/2 mile ocean swim starting at Campus Point Beach, a public access beach located adjacent to UCSB's east campus. The swim course is a point-to-point swim, with entrance and exit on a sandy beach. After exiting the water, participants will ascend the beach access stairway to the transition area. The ocean water is generally quite chilly this time of year, so wetsuits are strongly recommended. (If water temperatures are below 56 degrees Fahrenheit wetsuits will be MANDATORY).
The bike course (in blue) consists of a 16 mile loop through the City of Goleta and Santa Barbara County. The first 5 miles of the course are on a bike path that is closed to vehicle traffic. The next 8 miles are on a counter-clockwise loop that is open to traffic with a few rolling hills. The final 3 miles are back on the bike path that leads the participants through campus and to the transition area.
The run course (in red) consists of a 1-loop run over a rolling 3 mile course, running clockwise along the bluffs of UCSB next to the ocean. The course transitions from pavement to loose dirt and sand to hard packed trails around the lagoon and has a section of single-track path before the first mile. This may likely be the most scenic and beautiful oceanfront run course that you will race on this year. In fact, our run course was featured as the "Rave Run" photo in the December 2010 issue Runner's World.
