Beach Blast TRI & DU offers choices: Sprint or Olympic distance and Triathlon or Duathlon. BEACH BLAST consists of 4 races; pick yours:
Sprint Triathlon 0.35 mile swim - 15 mile bike - 3.1 mile run
Sprint Duathlon 1.2 mile run - 15 mile bike - 3.1 mile run
Olympic Triathlon 0.7 mile swim - 25 mile bike - 6.2 mile run
Olympic Duathlon 3.1 mile run - 25 mile bike - 6.2 mile run
All 4 races start from the same spot on the beautiful local beach. Please note that the park is located in the Eastern Time Zone (approx a mile from the Central/ Eastern Time Zone line) but to keep organizers and volunteers sane, the races run on CENTRAL TIMES. Olympic races take off at 7:00 am CT and Sprint distance races start at 7:30am CT. Swimmers and runners (duathletes after the first run on the beach) will follow the same course to T1, on the bike, T2, and run. Participants of Sprint distance races will turn around on the bike and run before Olympic participants will. Having 4 races at once makes Beach Blast a unique event and a great destination for a weekend on the beach!
