Parent-Child Triathlon Swim, 100 meters, Start Time: 10:30 AM
Flat water ocean swim course protected by UCSB Campus Point (red line shown below)
Out and back swim around the Red Buoy shown below. For safety reasons, parent must swim next to child at all times.
Parent-Child Triathlon Bike, 3 miles (1.5 miles each way)
The Parent-Child Bike segment exits the beach by crossing the bridge and turning right onto the recreational bike path for 1.5 miles. Then the Parent-Child riders do a U-turn just before reaching Patterson Avenue (DO NOT GO onto Patterson Ave. for any reason). For safety reasons, the parent must ride with their child directly in front, or behind, them at all times and maintain a close, but safe distance so your child will hear your voice clearly. No side-by-side riding allowed. Each parent is responsible for safely instructing their child throughout the entirety of the bike course.
Parent-Child Triathlon Run, 1.25 miles (1 loop)
The Parent-Child Run will follow the recreational path in and around the Park for ONE loop (approx. 1.25 miles). Upon exiting the Transition Area through the RUN OUT exit, you and your child will head east towards the Goleta Beach Bridge by turning right onto the recreational path. Once on the path, you and your child will proceed east towards the Bridge turnaround. Once you make the turnaround, head back (west) and turn right under the 217 Freeway toward the Santa Barbara Airport. Make the turnaround near the Airport and return under the 217 Freeway. Once you reach the Y intersection (Water Station), turn right and head west toward UCSB. There will be a turnaround flag near the westmost Park Boundary where you both will make and U-turn and head back toward the Finish Line. It is required that the Parent stay will stay with their child at ALL TIMES while on the Run Course and after they course the Finish Line.
It is highly recommended that you study the Course Maps & ride the course BEFORE race day!!
