Organiser's Description

SWIM (Half): 1.2 Miles (Ocean/Channel)BIKE (Half): 56 MilesRUN (Half): 13.1 Miles
The Edisto Island Triathlon is a half iron distance triathlon is back for year number four e after three wildly successful events in previous years!  This triathlon is held entirely on Edisto Island and Edisto Beach, South Carolina.  This soon to be world famous race features a "with the tide" channel swim and two loop bike that is flat and fast.  The run course is a two loop out and back course along the island's "interior" roads and is one of the flattest run courses you will find.  UPDATES: This event will be a single transition event with the transition area and finish line held at Bay Creek Park.  
The swim starts at Live Oak Boat Ramp and will be a with the current, point to point, channel swim which will be wetsuit legal. The course will be fast and will finish at The Marina adjacent to Bay Creek Park.  A very short run off the boat ramp will bring athletes in the transition area.  We will stage the swim based on the tide so swimmers will be swimming WITH the current.
The bike course will start at the Bay Creek Park and travel north within the bike lanes while on the main road.  Cyclists will make three turns off the main road to hit quiet and mostly hidden roadways many visitors to Edisto have never seen.  The course is best described as flat with little to no elevation gain of note and definitely no hills of any sort.  For those of you who raced in 2021 the major change is the elimination of all but one turn around to make for an even faster and more enjoyable ride.  This will be the same bike route utilized now with the only difference being we now start the bike at Bay Creek Park.
The run is an out and back 2-loop affair held within the interior roadways of Edisto Beach and partly on the Wyndham Resort Property.  Within the resort runners will find Edisto's only "hill" and traverse this massive 15 foot climb.  Runners will pass by Whaley's Bar & Grill 4 times (we highly suggest this hang out spot for spectators during the event) and will find fully stocked aid stations spaced every 1 mile to 1.5 miles.  
Post Event festivities will take place at Bay Creek Park on the Western edge of the island.
