One of the ideas that the Triathlon Club of San Diego was built around was the idea that our goal should be to introduce the sport and encourage participation to anyone that was interested.  With this in mind, we are proud to have beginner races taking place in June, July and August.

Anyone that has toed the line at the beginning of any race knows that it can be a little intimidating.  Triathlons are no different.  Your training and preparation can only prepare you so much for the actual raceday.  What we do is offer people new to the sport a chance to participate in a race with others that are just starting.

Our beginner races are held down at Glorietta Bay on the Silver Strand in beautiful Coronado.  With a 300m swim, a 7mi. bike and a 2mi. run, this race is perfect for any beginner who wants to try the sport in a relatively safe environment.  Plus, our beginner coaches will be down there to answer any questions you may have about everything from open water swimming to how to set up your transition area.

As with our races at Fiesta Island, we open registration two weeks before the race along with sending out a detailed description of the course and rules.  These races do fill up and in order to abide by our agreement with the city of Coronado, we must be strict on capping our attendance.

We encourage anyone that wants to try the sport of Triathlon to come out and participate in our Beginner Races.  They're a great way to experience the excitement of racing, while at the same time learning from experienced racers and coaches in a fun and safe environment.
