The Bridge to Pier Oak Island Sprint Triathlon is truly a breathtaking venue with everything first timers and veterans dream about in an event! This sprint triathlon will begin with a 1/3rd of a mile ocean swim in the warm 70 degree waters off Oak Island, NC. After emerging from the salt water athletes will transition to their bikes for a brand new 17.4 mile bike ride, taking athletes on a tour of Oak Island, with an out and back over the New Oak Island Bridge! Ocean breezes, Costal views, flat, and fast are the best ways to describe this route! Just when you thought the bike course was the highlight of this event it's time to put on your running shoes. Triathletes head north on this 4 mile out and back run course that will take them to the end of the pier! This event is open to everyone; from first time triathletes, relay teams, to veteran racers looking for a new challenge with breathtaking views. Capped at 500 athletes we expect to sell out by early May!
