Life Time Tri San Diego is held at South Shores Park in Mission Bay, site of the first modern triathlon in 1974.
The race features the Sprint Distance, a .46 mile swim, a 12.06 mile bike and a 3.08 mile run; or the SuperSprint Distance features a .24 mile swim, 6.35 mile bike and 1.65 mile run. The swim course is held in the boat launch, immediately east of Sea World and in the protected waters of Mission Bay. Once ashore, athletes hit the bike course along Sea World Drive and around Fiesta Island. The run course takes athletes through South Shores Park toward the Fiesta Causeway and back before entering the chute within a raucous Finish Festival.
