The mini sprint takes place at Ocean Lakes Family Campground. The 4-time National RV Park of the Year is located in Myrtle Beach, SC at the intersection of Hwy. 544 and Hwy 17. It provides a great location for this event. The mini tri will consist of a short indoor swim, an 8 mile bike, and a 1.6 mile run, all taking place on Ocean Lakes 310-acre oceanfront resort-style camping environment. The Ocean Lakes New Year Triathlon is an USAT sanctioned but more importantly its a HAPPY NEW YEAR HAVE FUN RACE. The race will begin with a time trial swim start. The swim is short, about 100 yards, and will take place in an indoor pool. Competitors will be seeded by submitted swim time prior to the race. My basic feeling concerning the swim is that it will be just long enough to get you wet so when you go outside your first thought will be “Happy New Year!” Hibernation is over. Pool water temps should be in the 70’s.
