Is racing a triathlon on your bucket list? You're in the right place! Bearathlon, the home race hosted by UC Berkeley's very own CAL TRIATHLON, is a flat, fast, *freshly repaved*, sprint triathlon race that boasts beautiful views of the San Francisco Bay. Open to all ages and experience levels -- the classic race is a fast course for a seasoned triathlete, and very beginner friendly if this is your first time. Oh, and one more thing! If you have friends joining you, we are offering group discounts for age group division racers. Contact Laura Rambo at firstname.lastname@example.org for your discount code :) !
Distance: 750m open-water swim, 20km bike, and 5km run.
Draft-Legal is a highly competitive race format for experienced triathletes. In comparison to a traditional triathlon, like the Classic Sprint race, there are some major differences. Drafting is allowed in the bike portions. Because of the increased danger from drafting, competitors must have experience riding in packs, and have excellent bike handling skills.
CLASSIC SPRINT/ CLASSIC SPRINT RELAY
Distance: 750m open-water swim, 20km bike, and 5km run. This is our most beginner-friendly and most popular event. Drafting on the bike is not allowed.
Relay Teams will race the same course but have the option of dividing the race between 2 or 3 people! If you aren't ready to race a full triathlon, grab a friend or two to share the fun with you!
