      The Sandman Triathlon and Duathlon

      The Sandman Triathlon is one of Santa Cruz County’s oldest triathlons, having its inaugural race way back in 1985 in the infancy days of the sport. The Sandman is a fundraiser for the local State Parks Junior Lifeguard program and proceeds help fund scholarships for under privileged kids so they can receive high quality water safety education. The Sandman Triathlon is a USAT sanctioned event. 

      You'll start out with a .75-mile ocean swim in the Monterey Bay around the world famous cement ship, followed by a scenic 13-mile bike course through Aptos, Seascape, and Rio Del Mar. A 4-mile beach run caps what is commonly described as one of the best triathlon experiences that California has to offer.
