OLYMPIC

This is the classic distance – requiring more training and strategy. You’ll paddle or swim the protected harbor, ride down highway 1 and through the seaside town of Cayucos.  On foot, you’ll explore some additional rocky areas and sea side retreats, and at the turn around, the rock bring you home to a sea of supporters at the finish line.
