LOUISVILLE, CO, March 16, 2017—Life Time Tri, America’s Premier Triathlon Series, proudly announces its return to Southern California this 2017 season. The NEW Life Time Tri San Diego will be held on Sunday, October 15 and provide an exciting short course experience at South Shores Park in Mission Bay – site of the first modern triathlon in 1974. This event will be the eighth and final race in the 2017 Life Time Tri Series.
This event, formerly known as Esprit de She (SheRox prior to that), has evolved from its origins as a women-only event. It will now feature a co-ed audience. “As we bring the Life Time Tri brand to life in San Diego, it’s also important that we honor the six-year history of this incredible event,” says Alexa Strobridge, Marketing Manager for Life Time Tri. “We will continue to provide the same, female-only wave starts and non-competitive opportunities for which the original event became famous, while opening the race to all genders so everyone can enjoy the famous course.” says Strobridge. A special legacy program will remain intact as well, celebrating those who have raced each year since its 2011 inception.
The race features the Sprint Distance, a .46 mile swim, a 12.06 mile bike and a 3.08 mile run; or the SuperSprint Distance features a .24 mile swim, 6.35 mile bike and 1.65 mile run. The swim course starts at the boat launch, immediately east of Sea World and in the protected waters of Mission Bay. Once back ashore, athletes hit the bike course along Sea World Drive and around Fiesta Island. The run course takes athletes through South Shores Park toward the Fiesta Causeway and back before entering the chute within a raucous Finish Festival.
In addition to the standard race, a special Double Sprint Tri will be available to a select field – allowing individuals to complete a longer distance, multi-loop competition. This option will be limited to the first 100 participants (50 women, 50 men), each of whom must qualify by showing proof of completing an International distance event within 2:45:00 or less. Strict cutoff times will apply. Prizes will be distributed to the top 5 overall finishers (by gender) using cumulative net finish times.
Registration for all 2017 Life Time Tri San Diego races will open Monday, March 20 at 12:00 p.m. PDT. The new event is limited to the first 1,000 participants. More details can be found at www.trisandiego.com or www.lifetimetri.com.
