Welcome to North Myrtle Beach and the TriFecta Sprint Triathlon, Duathlon and AquaBike!

This great event features a 400 meter open water swim, a 12.5 mile bike leg, and a 5K run. The course will include over 6 miles of beautiful Ocean Boulevard, a ride along the marsh in Cherry Grove, and a section of historic Ocean Drive the "Home of Beach Music" on Main Street. Bring your family & friends and make it a vacation event!  The event will also feature Duathlon (Run-Bike-Run), Aquabike (Swim-Bike) and Aquathlon (Swim-Run) events.

This is a great opportunity for your family and friends to share in your sporting passion. While you satisfy your "need for speed" at the event, those closest to you can also enjoy the prime vacation destination that "is" North Myrtle Beach. With premium restaurants, first class entertainment, scenic bicycle routes, local golf courses, extensive shopping, and the finest beaches on the east coast, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Be sure to make reservations for a few extra days to stay with us and enjoy the Grand Strand, you'll be glad that you did. So will those who travel with you.

Anyone registering within the final 2 weeks leading up to the event date will not be guaranteed a shirt as orders must be placed at that time.
