We really dig the new triathlete; and what that means is this is the perfect venue for anyone who has always wanted to be a triathlete! We are also an awesome setting for the seasoned triathlete. What bettter way to get your game on!

We are certainly an excellent starting point for one who wants to become a triathlete. Having a pool instead of the ocean makes it more enticing.

* But it might actually be official!

The run takes place in a scenic, calm area of west Hemet. The tranquil streets of a Sunday Triathlon can typically be found on a sunny, yet crisp, Southern California day.

Known as the "flat & fast" course, the 12 mile bike ride has the triathlete pedaling down the Domenigioni Highway. This highway showcases the beautiful San Jacinto Mountains from the eastside.
In this 50 meter heated pool at West Valley HIgh, participants will swim 150 meters (up & back 3 times).
The pool is 12ft at the deep end and 3.5 at the shallow.


The Tinsel Triathlon is dedicated to the memory of my husband, David Neil Loper, who bought me this race!
