Renegade Racing Takes On Catalina Island Triathlon: Adds Duathlon and 5K Run Options

September 1, 2015

Renegade Racing, a premier running, triathlon & adventure sports production company in Southern California, is teaming up with the Catalina Island Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau to produce the 28th Annual Catalina Island Triathlon on November 7th. Adding to the race options, Renegade is offering a new Duathlon and a 5K Run/Walk.

“The wonderful thing about the Catalina Island Triathlon is that it’s accessible, both in terms of competitive offerings, and location – just an hour by boat, or 15 minutes by helicopter from the Southern California mainland. For runners entering their first 5k, to seasoned Triathletes, the opportunity to compete in one of the most beautiful destinations in California is unmatched,” said Jim Luttjohann, President & Chief Executive Officer, Catalina Island Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau.

Renegade’s Race Director Jonathan Pauley, is excited to take over management of the triathlon, having worked on Catalina Island many times for various endurance events. “We are thrilled to be the race management company for the Catalina Island Triathlon. Coupling more than decade of experience in managing triathlon and running events with our love for Catalina Island, we aim to deliver the best Catalina Island Triathlon yet,” Pauley said. “Our goal is to offer the same triathlon that participants know and love and expand to athletes who want a duathlon or run/walk option.”
