Monterey Bay Triathlon

October 10, 2021

Elite and amateur triathletes flock to Pacific Grove to participate in one of the most scenic triathlons in the world: the Monterey Bay Triathlon. The Monterey Bay Triathlon offers an Olympic distance triathlon, a Sprint distance triathlon, an Aqua Bike race, and a Kids Fun Run. 

Why Pacific Grove?

The Monterey Bay Triathlon is perfect for the beginning triathlete, and a great experience for the expert looking for an enjoyable event. October weather in Pacific Grove is ideal for a triathlon: cool and misty at dawn with sun by mid-morning and an average high temperature in the low-70s. The flat biking and running courses, with scenic views and gentle rollers, are perfect for beginners and lead to fast times for elite triathletes.

Monterey Bay Triathlon Hotels and Dining

You can stay just steps away from the triathlon course at one of Pacific Grove's inns, hotels, motels or bed and breakfasts. Some offer suites with kitchenettes in case you prefer to prepare your own carb-loading meals, while others offer a full buffet breakfast that will ensure you are fueled up for your event.

Many of Pacific Grove's finest restaurants are also located within one or two blocks of the Monterey Bay Triathlon course. Plan ahead and make a reservation; your competitors in the race are sure to be there!

Pacific Grove offers much more to do than just the Triathlon at Pacific Grove. See our Pacific Grove Itinerary for ideas on where to eat and what to see - and ways to keep your fans busy while you prep for the race.
