Carolina Beach Double Sprint

2021 Carolina Beach, NC US 28428 Directions


7:00AM EDT - 5:00PM EDT
Covid19 Announcement - May 21st

New Date: 2021

The Carolina Beach Double Sprint has officially been postponed. While things appear to be trending in the right direction around the country, we’re not nearly in a solid enough position to be able to pull off this race.

We will continue to evaluate conditions on an ongoing basis and make decisions on events when we’re about three weeks out from race dates.

Everyone currently registered for Carolina Beach will automatically be deferred to the 2021 race.  There is nothing that registered participants need to proactively do – this deferment is automatic.

Registered participants also have the option to transfer their registrations to another NCTS race later this year if they choose to do so.

Since everything is so up-in-the-air right now, this decision does not need to be made now. Registered participants can wait to see when things return to normal, and then transfer their registrations to another NCTS race rather than taking the automatic deferment to 2021.

We hope people understand that we will not be offering a refund option. This is consistent with our normal policy regarding event postponements. We appreciate your understanding on this matter.

Thanks for your patronage and we look forward to the day when we can get back to the business of staging endurance events.

No Shirt/No Swag

NEW for 2020 - "No Shirt/No Swag" Registration Option

For 2020, participants will have the option of registering for a race at a discounted price and NOT receiving the race shirt and any “swag” given away at the race. If you opt to do this, select the registration category that fits you (Individual or AquaBike), and when you get to the stage during this registration process where you pick your t-shirt size – you’ll see a “No Shirt/No Swag” option – and the discounted amount.

If by chance, at a later date, you decide that you'd like to have the race shirt or swag, you'll be able to purchase a race shirt and the swag at the race site following the conclusion of the race. Be aware, that should you do this, the items will cost more than by purchasing them when you register.


1)  Anyone registering after 5/30 - WILL NOT receive a race shirt or swag 
2)  Relay teams do NOT have this “No Shirt/No Swag”option. All relay team members will automatically receive shirts and swag.
