Scott Tinley’s Triathlon presented by Tri-California Events, offers a three-day-weekend race festival located just outside the college town of San Luis Obispo, California. Beginning on 2 October 2015, Tri-California is offering a variety of races to satisfy a range of participants – from children, to beginner triathletes, to off-road racers, to collegiate and a half-iron distance for the advanced triathletes.
Throughout the long weekend Scott Tinley’s Triathlon will host a kids-youth triathlon, an international and long-course road triathlon, a sprint road triathlon, an off-road sprint triathlon, as well as one and two-mile hill climb races. Athletes registered for the international road-course triathlon or the off-road sprint will have the opportunity to race along side Scott Tinley, the race legend himself.
“One of our goals in producing this event over the past two decades was to retain the original look and feel of SoCal multisport events,” said Scott Tinley, two-time IRONMAN World Champion and Ironman Hall of Famer.
“We love seeing the same folks who’ve been racing here since 1994 as well as meeting new friends every year in or out of the chute.”
Participants of Scott Tinley’s Triathlon can opt for a destination weekend in San Luis Obispo or a unique racing experience of camping at the race venue – the Lake Lopez Campgrounds. Racers camping on-sight will enjoy the convenience of walking to the starting line of each event.
All of the triathlons start with a swim in Lake Lopez and then move on to the bike leg through picturesque backcountry roads lined with farmland and vineyards. To finish up, racers will experience another scenic route along the Lake Lopez campground trails. After a fun day of racing, participants and their families can enjoy all that Lake Lopez has to offer.
