It’s that feeling when you cross the finish line.  Do you remember?  There is nothing else in the world like it.  If you could somehow bottle and sell that feeling, you’d become a billionaire overnight.  Come experience that feeling again on August 28, 2021!

The Santa Barbara Triathlon is back, under new ownership, but is still the same amazing experience you have known and loved for all these years.

Coming out of the pandemic has been hard on all of us, but we’ve weathered the storm and are facing brighter days!  I’m not going to lie, the closures in the beginning of the year present planning challenges and stresses on our team’s infrastructure; but we are determined to bring back the Santa Barbara Triathlon this August.  Because of these restrictions in the first half of the year, there are some necessary changes to the 2021 event we need to make to be able to produce a terrific event while also prioritizing athlete safety and community integration.

The most significant change includes consolidating the entire event to a single day on Saturday, August 28, 2021.   Producing a one-day overall event ensures the same electric atmosphere at the venue that you’ve come to expect.

The Santa Barbara Triathlon prides itself on offering something for everyone—from first-timers to families to avid triathletes.  Therefore, ALL of the originally planned races will still be held.  That’s right, all of Sunday’s races will now be held on Saturday, August 28, with the originally scheduled long course events.  This is a “one-time-only” adjustment, as we are already planning on returning to our usual two-day event in 2022.

As a result of these unique circumstances, the number of athletes we can host in each race will be more limited than in the past (and in the future).

As promised, there will be no price increase as the event approaches.  But with fewer spots and higher demand, the race will sell out.  Be sure to save your spot so that you can—yay, finally!—experience that finish-line feeling again!
