A little over one week ago I completed the Santa Barbara Long Course Triathlon. As you may be aware this race is neither a Half nor an Olympic.. It is somewhere in between. The swim is “advertised” as one mile, the bike 34 miles, and the run 10 miles. The venue is the lovely “American Riviera” at the main beach / base of the State Street. Think of Los Gatos at the beach…. Anyway…. I was going to race in Tahoe on that weekend, but decided against it due to several factors: 1.
Hope you haven't melted out there! Congratulations to the Jon and Christine Erskine, Gunnar Roll & Jeff Tse on their incredible finishes at the unique Santa Barbara Triathlon! Jon and Gunnar finished 5th in their age groups in highly competitive fields. See Gunnar's race report. Run by the Sea. So many racers...but congratulations to Gerardo van den Hoek on taking out the 13.1 overall. Solid performance! A big SCTA THANK YOU to Monica Hernandez and Andrew King for volunteerin
