For 14 years, triathletes have been flocking to San Luis Obispo, CA to race one of the most beautiful and competitive triathlons in the state, the March Triathlon Series. It is not only a destination for one of the few Olympic distance races in California, but it also holds the prestige of being the West Coast Collegiate Championship Race, which draws the top athletes from colleges all over the West Coast.
MTS is seen as the premier triathlon of the year for collegiate triathletes, and it is put on by none other than students on the Cal Poly Triathlon Team. The race is the culmination of hundreds of hours of training and preparation for a large majority of athletes, but it is also a community event, one that Cal Poly gives so much time and effort into making amazing.
The ties between the Cal Poly Tri Team and GH Sports are understandably strong, and the packet pick-up for MTS is held at our store. GH Sports offers huge discounts all day long, helping everyone gear up for the race the next day, and GH also manufactures the top finisher t shirts that are presented at the awards ceremony.
With the beautiful landscape, the enthusiasm of thousands of competitors and spectators, and a local heartbeat, MTS is and will continue to be a race not worth missing.
