Test your swim skills in open water!
Date TBD but usually late April
How about a long course tri? This is a fast and flat course in the beautiful seaside town of Beaufort, NC. Registration is already open: https://crystalcoasttri.com/

Three great sprint triathlons
Dates TBD but usually: July, Aug & Sep
Rex Tri Series
Is an Iron Man race on your "bucket list"? With an assisted swim, this can be a PR for the 70.3 distance. Being in Wilmington means it's flat and fast and close to home!
