BR Triathlon

Brett/Robinson Triathlon

Always the Saturday after Labor Day, enjoy a beautiful gulf swim and a fast, flat bike and run course at a great venue!

This is a perfect race setting with the Gulf of Mexico, main staging area, finish line, packet pick up, pre-race dinner, and post-race party all in one spot, at The Hangout! It's a 1950's beachside hangout brought back to life in the same location.

Choose from an intermediate distance triathlon or a beginner-friendly sprint triathlon - either way, the party is on us.

Coastal Half Marathon

Coastal Half Marathon

Join us the Saturday after Thanksgiving and bring the whole family for the Coastal Half Marathon, 5K and one-mile fun run. There’s a race for all skill levels, and participants can run, walk or wheel across the finish line. This fun, family event is a great way to burn off a few extra helpings of that Thanksgiving dinner.
