2013 Jersey Shore Multisport Races

The Jersey Shore MultiSport race season kicks off on February 1st with early bird pricing. It will only last for 24 hours, so sign up between midnight and 11:59pm Friday to get in on the deals.

If you haven’t tried Vice-Versa in the run-bike-swim format, we want you to give it a try. Those who have, love the swim-to-the-finish aspect of the race. It is a great way to finish on a hot July morning! If you don’t feel comfortable with swimming after the bike, you have the option to race it the traditional swim-bike-run format! For those of you who are averse to the whole idea of running are in luck too! Lame Duck offers a swim-bike-swim option. We even offer a relay option for Vice Versa so there is something for everyone! Vice Versa & Lame Duck are on Saturday, July 6th in Allenhurst, NJ.

Born to Tri is the premier race on the historic Asbury Park Boardwalk. There is nothing better than seeing the sunrise over the Atlantic, swimming to the iconic carousel, riding Ocean Ave, and running the boards down to the world famous Convention Hall. Register early so you don’t get closed out. This race is strictly limited in an effort to keep everyone safe on the course and it is sure to sellout again in 2013. Born to Tri is on Saturday, July 27th.
