The North Carolina Triathlon Series is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2023, and has been recognized as one of the premier statewide triathlon series in the U.S.
From the heart of the spectacular Blue Ridge Mountains to the beautiful beaches of southeastern North Carolina the NCTS consists of the following:

Started in 1999, the NCTS is comprised of iconic long-standing races like the Azalea Sprint in Wilmington, the White Lake Half, the YMCA Wrightsville Beach Sprint, the Triangle Sprint in Raleigh, and the Pinehurst International - all five races part of the NCTS since its inception in 1999.
In 2023 the NCTS adds a new Sprint race in Jacksonville (home to Marine Corps Base Camp LeJeune).
