For the past 34 years the Crescent City sprint triathlon has been enjoyed at the Fred Endert Municipal Pool in Crescent City, CA, about 20 miles south of the Oregon border. Over the years an adult duathlon and a kids triathlon has been added.  You will enjoy a small town event which draws participants from many states and nearby counties.  Although a comfortable family event, competition often is high.  

Crescent City is located on the spectacular coast of rocky sea stacks, with a three mile sandy beach, deep water commercial harbor, and two lighthouses. Redwood hills are our running and hiking playground. The Smith River offers crystal clear fishing and summer swimming.

The 25 yard indoor municipal pool enables us to limit each lane to two swimmers.  The pool offers an outstanding sealife mural and a large window wall overlooking the sea.  The triathlon and duathlon take advantage of the gorgeous ocean road for biking. The run brings athletes out on the pier and along the harbor, taking advantage of our new coastal trail. The kids triathlon is held solely within the City Beachfront Park, never taking them out on open public streets.  You cannot find a more beautiful coastal course.  Transitions start and end at the same location, next to the pool.  Chiptimed by Enmotive

Do come join us, bring the family, enjoy our spectacular scenery in cool coastal weather!
