Rock Your Fitness
We all know San Diego is the birthplace of the modern triathlon. If you haven’t already, it’s time to finally “tri” this sport. No excuses!
Swim, bike, run, and (duh) rock the 5th Annual TriRock, the largest triathlon series in the city. The route features a swim in the not-so-rough San Diego Harbor and a ride on a flat bike path (you get to ride onto Naval Base San Diego), capped off by a run through Embarcadero Park North and Seaport Village, which also makes for a great spot to spectate and refuel (try the tacos at Puesto).
Individual athletes participate in either the sprint course (500-meter swim, 11-mile bike, 3-mile run) or Olympic distance (1,500-meter swim, 22-mile bike, 6-mile run), or teams of three can compete in the relay. The first race kicks off on September 21 at 6:30 a.m. behind the Convention Center. And it’s all in support of TriRock’s official charity, Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America.
