After what we can all agree was a turbulent 2020, we are so excited to bring racing back to our home town, Exeter! We are hopeful that this race will go off without a hitch. We will be working with the county health department to make sure we deliver the safest race possible.
Rocky Hill, located in Exeter, California, has been a mecca for athletes of all levels and abilities for decades. The third annual Rocky Hill Triathlon is an event created to showcase what draws people from near and far to the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas. Our fun and challenging course will help push you to new limits. Whether you are a new comer to the sport of triathlon, or a seasoned veteran, you will enjoy this race. We will be offering two different distances on race day. A sprint distance and an olympic distance, both of which are USAT sanctioned.
The race starts in the pool located at the high school. From there, racers will hop on their bikes and head east up and over Rocky Hill. All racers will make the short and steep climp up Meyer Drive heading west making their way back through downtown Exeter. Once off the bike, racers will head back to Rocky Hill for an out and back run. The epic finish will be on the high school track. Head over to rockyhilltriathlon.com for course maps.
