Charleston Sprint Triathlon Series kicks off May 22 at James Island County Park
5/13/2016 4:23:37 PM

The area’s premier swim, bike and run competition, the Charleston Sprint Triathlon Series, kicks off its 26th year on May 22 at James Island County Park. Registration is now open for all five races in the series as well as a training clinic for the race.

The Charleston Sprint Triathlon (CSTS) is a five-race series that spans May through August. Athletes may sign up for one race, or compete in multiple or all of the five-race series. Winners will be awarded from each individual race as well as the entire series. The 2016 series will be held on May 22, June 19, July 10, and July 31, with the Championship Race set for Aug. 14. Over 30,000 athletes have raced in this swim-bike-run series since it began in 1991.

Races begins at 7:15 a.m. with a 600-yard freshwater swim in the park’s lake, continue with a 12-mile bike ride through the park and out and back on Riverland Drive, and finish with a flat 5K run. Participants must be comfortable swimming the distance in open water and riding a bicycle on roads open to traffic.

At each CSTS race, awards will be presented to the top five men and the top five women finishers in the Open/Elite division. Awards are also presented to the top three age group winners in five-year increments, and the top male and female finishers over the age of 40 (Masters division). Awards will additionally be presented to the top three competitors who register for the Clydesdale (men over 200 pounds), Athena (women over 150 pounds) or Masters Clydesdales divisions. The Championship race will also award medals to participants who have earned the most points throughout the five-race series. A discounted rate is available for athletes who register for more than one race.

CSTS team participation is open to all males and females ages 12 to 18, and high school team participation is encouraged. Multiple teams from individual schools will be allowed. Teams who meet the age requirements do not necessarily need to be affiliated with a particular high school, but all teams must have a designated team captain.

For more information or to register for the Charleston Sprint Triathlon Series, visit or call 843-795-4386. This event is brought to you by Blue Sky Endurance, Premier Physical Therapy, and by the Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission (CCPRC).
