In response to feedback from 2016, UPDATES FOR 2017:
2017 Tri the Gulf will be even more safe than 2016's event! The DIPD and volunteers will be out in full force and fully aware of our needs.
Our transition area will change, be more fair, and remove the dangerous hill to climb with your bike. Stay tuned for specific details.
We will not swim into the sun in 2017.
The bike and run course will be completely separate. We will have an alternative bike course should weather prevent us from riding over the bridge.
More lodging will be available on the Island.
Safety is our #1 concern for 2017 followed by a fun AMAZING race for you!
This is a USAT sanctioned event!
Tri the Gulf guarantees the first 500 participants registered great swag, official race t-shirt, and finish line goodies.
