Swim 1000 meters, Bike 14 miles and Run 5 miles.

Myrtle Beach Triathlon Club & Set Up Events presents THE XTERRA MYRTLE BEACH TRIATHLON

A world-renowned name in triathlon comes to a family-oriented and beginner-friendly experience in this race. Starting with a one of a kind swim start, beginning with a boat ride to the starting line, competitors will swim 1000 meters in the Intercoastal Waterway and find themselves running up a boat ramp into transition 1. The bike portion will surprise many, with a challenging and technical course that will engage racers over two laps to cover 14 miles. The bike is a hidden gem among our coastal geography! The run continues to change things up, with a flat and fast five miles. The route is still on dirt, and is a traditional out and back style which is closed to traffic. Drawing beginners and experienced racers alike, the XTERRA Tri and Myrtle Beach is a race like none other.
