12th Annual Bayshore Triathlon update. Our race remains on the calendar as scheduled. Will this change with Covid? I wish I could give you a firm answer, but would guess 50/50. We will be having a Zoom meeting to answer any questions on Monday, January 18th at 5PM Pacific time to discuss our options. They are listed in bullet points below, but we all have questions and we'll do our best to answer them! Here is the Zoom Link https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83802328933
February 20 - Make the final decision a green or red light on March 13 race date. If our official race cannot happen, we will be doing a virtual or "onsite lite" option with race results.
May 15, 2021 - First Optional Race Date
June 26, 2021 - Second Option for Race Date

The Bayshore Story
The Bayshore 70.4 Triathlon was formed after a few beers at Rileys back in early 2008. Mike: "Do you want to do Ironman Arizona next year , Barry?" Barry: "uhhh, sure!" Now what the heck do we do? ! With no local races on the calendar for early in the year, Mike & Barry decided to build a race that would help locals get their season started in a casual and fun environment. Thus, the Bayshore 70.4 was formed.
A decade later, our race leaders have evolved and we are still having a ton of fun getting locals ready for their seasons. For the past few years, the team of Michele, Brent, Erin and Barry have been fielding the question "Can we have a beginner event to learn more about the sport". The answer is YES!! This year we are fired up to host our first Sprint Triathlon. This is ideal for newbies who need some guidance and have some fun swimming, biking and running.
In 2015, Triathlete Magazine Voted the Bayshore "Top 10 of Off the Grid Triathlons in United States"
In 2013, We were lucky to have BMX Legend, Dave Mirra join our event - Yes, he was REAL fast on the bike. Sport Illustrated Article HERE
We sincerely thank everybody who has been involved for 11 great years. Erin runs around like crazy organizing our volunteers and helping with sponsors. Michele is our registration guru and tells us that we are broke. Brent organizes the race course and facilities. Barry is mainly around for his good looks! We are ALWAYS here for your questions. Hit Barry up at firstname.lastname@example.org
