One of the best all women triathlons on the west coast. Capitola is the perfect venue offering an ocean swim around the wharf, views of the pacific, fun bike course featuring a gradual climb into the coastal redwoods, followed by a run on the ocean bluff overlooking the town.
Mermaids receive a stylish women's cut shirt, custom finisher's necklace, and post race food.
Sprint Triathlon Race Categories - Family and Friends vs. Age Group vs. Athena
The Family & Friends category allows athletes of any age to start together. It is very popular for first time triathletes, mother and daughter combos and friends who would otherwise be in different start waves. The Age Group category is for Mermaids who wish to compete against Mermaids of a similar age. The Athena category is for athletes 160lbs and over.
mermaid girls 1 mile "beach dash"
Capitola is all about the beach and there's nothing better than watching mermaid dashers (for girls aged 6-12 years old) participate in the annual "beach dash!" The one mile beach dash is a 2 loop run from the finish area out along the hard pack sand to the end of the beach and back. Register your mermaid online for $15.00 or you can sign them up on race day for $20.00.
