Racecation Spotlight: 5 Beach Trip Triathlons

When it’s summer, a beach triathlon kills two birds with one stones – getting in a race and taking a family vacation. When the kids are begging to go to the beach, you can pack up your gear and grant their wish!

If you’re training for a Half Ironman or and Ironman later in the season, doing a sprint race will let you get in some actual event training and serve as a great training workout for that day.
