Morro Bay Tri Welcomes Athletes of All Abilities


Not sure if our tri is for you? Yes, we’re a bit more adventurous than a pool triathlon, that’s for sure, but you can do this!


Our event producers have extensive experience in working with:

  • youth athletes – we’ve had racers as young as 7 complete our course with their guardian
  • senior athletes – our oldest athlete so far has been 86 – can you beat that? We believe you can!
  • adaptive and special needs athletes – we’ve had athletes with Downs Syndrome, Cystic Fibrosis, amputations, wheelchair assists, and more
  • improving athletes – whether this is your first tri or you’re getting back into it, we don’t take down our finish arch till we see you cross that finish line!
Denise Heitzman opted to paddle for our tri so she could carry oxygen with her – and her friend stashed extra bottles along the course! Click on the photo to learn her story (and thanks for letting us tell it, Denise!)

Worried you’re gonna come in last? Get the BEST cheers from race staff who respect what you’ve accomplished!


Our zone leads  track where you are on course at all times and can provide assistance as needed (this may result in a DNF officially, but we will help you finish the race if that’s what you want to do – that medal is sweet!)

We have ambulances on call and doctors / emergency medical professionals on site.

Please contact us for information about how we can make you feel welcome and have the best day ever!
