About This Activity

We are so excited to be able to host our 4th annual event this coming up Memorial Day Weekend. We will have a full morning of racing going on with Olympic and Sprint distance Triathlons, Aqua Bikes and Duathlons. This event can be completed as a team or as an individual. Also dont forget about the 5k and 10k runs accross to the other side of the straight on Historic Mare island.

    The swim will take place in the Mare Island Straight where the Napa River meets the Bay. The bikers will then cross the Carquinez Straight on the Zampa Bridge into Crockett, and the run course will take the participants across the Mare Island Causeway through the Mare Island Naval Shipyard.     All participants will recieve a tech shirt and finishers medal. Awards will be available for Male and Female of every category that has a minimum of three entrants. Teams will be awards in one mixed category and will also need 3 team entries for awards.     Pre-registration will close on May 23th.

The run does take place over a live draw bridge. We have successfully petitioned for a delay in operating hours and plan to do that again this year.
