Desert Triathlon is the unofficial kickoff to triathlon season. Heading into its 18th year, Desert Triathlon is the perfect race for both the new or beginner triathlon, and the experienced triathlete looking to shake off their winter rust. We’re situated on the calendar as the perfect warmup to several longer distance races, including the 70.3 in Oceanside
The Big Rock Triathlon has been a favorite for over a decade . We offer the Olympic distance triathlon, the sprint distance triathlon and an off-road MTB triathlon. Olympic: Swim 1.5k, Bike 40k, Run 10k
Sprint: Swim 1/2 mi, Bike 12 mi, Run 3 mi
Off-Road: Swim 1/2 mi, Bike 12 to 14 mi, Run 3 mi
Calm lake swim, with a great bike course that has a short climb (off-road course has a few steep climbs) the run is fun and fast with a few very short up and downs
Water temp is in the low 60’s and the weather is usually in the mid 70’s
FREE BBQ lunch to all participants!
Professionally timed finisher results, bib, finisher medal, top finisher awards, costume contest, post race refreshments, and a commemorative bag as well as a t-shirt!
Participants are also invited to stay for the Healthy Living Extravaganza after the 5k Run/Walk.
