About CapitolaMan Triathlon

The CapitolaMan is California Central Coast's first full distance triathlon, now in its second year. Distances are a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike, and a 26.2 mile run. A RELAY DIVISION and an AQUABIKE DIVISION are offered.

Although the distances are identical to an Ironman Triathlon this race organization is not related to the Ironman Corp. or WTC in any way, shape or manner. This is an independent organization producing a high quality event in one of the world's most scenic locations. 

The course has been designed by a veteran triathlete and race director to share some of the scenic beauty and natural wonders of our area with racers from all over the world.

Capitola and Santa Cruz are just 30 miles south of the Silicon Valley and only 90 minutes from San Francisco.

Fall is the most beautiful time of year in Northern California and in Capitola and Santa Cruz. The afternoons get warm and the water temperature is as 'nice as it gets' hovering in the low 60's. 

The swim takes place at Seacliff State Park Beach. It is a two lap triangular course. The swim can be viewed from the surrounding bluffs.  

Throughout the course safety is first.

The 112 mile bike course will be re-designed on less-travelled, rural and scenic rolling roads.

The run is designed to give our visitors a glimpse of the beautiful and natural Nisene Marks State Park. This wonderful park of 2nd and 3rd growth redwoods provides a cooling cover and stunning backdrop to a soft, off pavement run. As the run gains only 900 feet elevation, it will be fast.

This second-year event will be limited to 850 participants. Awards will be well designed and original. Great quality Schwagg items will be plentiful. Gourmet food from locally sourced farms and vendors is planned to satisfy all appetites.

$60,000 of the race proceeds are already committed to benefit local community organizations.
