2/20/14 Drought Update - Venue Change has occurred: Click Here
We are excited about the new location and the relationship we have created with the City of Half Moon Bay as well as several organizations around the coast. With any new event there will be new logistics we need to explain to make the event successful and fun for all. The event will have a point to point bike course with two transitions; we will make this as seamless as possible with shuttles, sufficient volunteers and a beautiful backdrop of the Pacific Ocean from the Half Moon Bay coastline.
We will be providing GoPro videos of each course over the next two weeks and posting them below as well as Facebook and our YouTube Channel. This will allow for you to get a glimpse of the course, transitions, and key points of the event if you’re not able to take advantage of the Training Clinic (April 12, 2014) or preview the course in advance.
On Sunday April 20, 2014, we will have other family focused activities occurring for the whole family to come out and enjoy Easter weekend in the beautiful City of Half Moon Bay. We will have an Easter egg hunt and other kids’ activities on race day!

Spectators will have several options that start with beach views of the swim start/finish, transition from swim to bike, views of the athletes on the bike course, transition from bike to run and finally an incredible finish near the Johnston House and views of the Pacific Ocean down the hill!
T1 Parking: It's recommended that spectators park directly west of the transition area and follow the cyclists out of the transition area on Airport Way this way you don't create a cross at any point on the course.
T2 Parking: It's recommended that spectators park on Main St. north of the Johnston House again not creating a cross on the course and you will have a .25 mile walk to transition #2/Johnston House and will be able to see athletes transition from bike to run and finish at the Johnston House location.
We will number transition racks in both T1 and T2 to make it fair for all, your items will be placed in that area in each transition. We will be posting a transition map for the numbering sequence for each rack.
