SLO Triathlon


Whether you train to stay in shape, participate in sports, or want to have a good time with family and friends, the San Luis Obispo Triathlon may be perfect event for you. Completion, rather than competition, is the focus of the SLO Triathlon. There are benefits for everyone involved in this sprint (or short course) triathlon, providing opportunities to set personal goals for both novice and experienced triathletes.

For the 39th annual year, participants from across the nation will gather on Sunday, July 22nd for the SLO Triathlon.

Starting and finishing at Sinsheimer Park participants will begin with a half mile pool swim in a designated lane (providing your own lap counter is required). Worried about the swim? You can still participate by “jogging” the laps in the shallow end of the pool. After jumping out of the pool, the bike ride takes you 15-miles along the beautiful rolling hills of Orcutt road. Participants will then finish with a 3.1 mile run (or walk) through the neighborhoods surrounding the park. There is no time limit for this event.
