The Kiawah Island Triathlon is a USAT sanctioned intermediate distance competition featuring a .7-mile swim, 25.1-mile bike and 6.1-mile run. This race is currently the only intermediate distance triathlon in the Charleston area to feature an ocean swim.

The competition kicks off with the .7-mile point-to-point swim in the vast, beautiful and calm Atlantic waters off Kiawah’s stunning coastline. The bike and run portions of the race take athletes along the scenic marshland, maritime forest and beachfront, allowing participants to capture the unique essence of Kiawah Island. Transition area will take place in Night Heron Park, a 21-acre spectator and family friendly park at the heart of Kiawah Island.

The Kiawah Island Golf Resort Triathlon will test beginner triathletes and seasoned competitors alike in a unique environment that showcases Kiawah’s diverse natural habitats and unparalleled beauty.
