Half Moon Bay Triathlon, Duathlon, Aquathlon & AquabikeWebsite
One of the most beautiful locations on the Northern California coastside. The Half Moon Bay Triathlons offers a safe harbor swim environment, beautiful bike course along the coast, one transition, and a run course along the beach on the coastal trail. Come enjoy this incredible backdrop and this spring triathlon along the Pacific Ocean.
We recommend that you take advantage of our training clinics that will occur in HMB before the event so you’re prepared for the water temperature and other elements for this event.
There will be one tranistion that will be located in Pillar Point Harbor, this will be a secure tranistion from start to finish and participants will only be allowed in tranistion. You must be wearing a wristband that will be given out at packet pickup to get in and out of tranistion along with your bike bib and run bib to remove your bike from transition after the race. Restrooms will be across the street from transition next to the Kayak Rental.

OLYMPIC SWIM COURSE (.93 MILES):
Your .93 Mile Swim will start in deep water and in age group waves. Water surface temperature is about 56-59 degrees and wetsuits are highly recommended. The swim course will be lined with large buoys, numerous lifeguards, kayak teams, and our Guard Life medical team. You will have a short run back to transition.
Your swim to bike run or walk will be approx, .3 miles in length and you can bring your shoes down to the beach before your swim. We will have an area that will be sectioned off based on bib number and distance.
Swim course safety plan with warming area:
We will be setting the course the day before the event and will re-measure the course the day of the event to make sure the course is set accurately for both races. We will not start the race until both courses are set accurately and all guards are ready.
We will have a warming area available for all athletes before and after your swim; warm water will be available to fill your wetsuit as well as warm water pools after to warm your feet.
Wetsuits, skull caps, and ear plugs are highly recommended for this race as the water temperature in April ranges from 56-59 degrees
We will have ear plugs available in Transition for all athletes, this will help with keeping your core temperature normal during the swim.
You can wear gloves, swim socks/botties, and skull caps during the swim. Gloves, swim socks or botties can not be webbed based on USAT rules and regulations.
