Life Time (NYSE: LTM), the Healthy Way of Life Company, today unveiled that
the 2013 Life Time Tri championship event will be held on Sunday, October 20,
2013 in Oceanside, Calif. In its inaugural year, Life Time Tri Oceanside is
expected to host more than 1,500 of triathletes as the final of 12 Life Time
Tri events across the country.
“Oceanside is recognized worldwide as a sought-after triathlon destination,”
said Kimo Seymour, vice president, Life Time Athletic Events. “Nestled between
San Diego and Los Angeles, Oceanside is a challenging, scenic course—a truly
unique experience for triathletes of all abilities—and the perfect conclusion
to our 2013 Life Time Tri schedule.”
Life Time Tri Oceanside will start with a 1.5-kilometer swim in the waters of
Oceanside Harbor, which has an average water temperature of 63-65 degrees in
late October. Athletes will enjoy an ocean front transition before starting a
40-kilometer bike course along the San Luis Rey Mission Expressway. The
10-kilometer run course follows white, sandy beaches allowing for a
spectator-fueled finish adjacent at the historic Oceanside Pier. To keep Life
Time Tri Oceanside accessible to athletes with a concentration on short course
format, as well as beginner athletes, the event also will feature a shorter
sprint distance race.
“We are honored that Oceanside has been chosen from among some of the
country’s most spectacular destinations to host Life Time Tri’s championship
event,” said Leslee Gaul, chief executive officer and president, Visit
Oceanside. “With its accessibility to major west coast markets, stunning
beauty and tourism infrastructure, Oceanside will resonate with both athletes
and spectators alike.”
Along with professional athletes from around the world, Life Time Tri events
attract more than 25,000 elite and age group athletes each season.
Professional and elite triathletes will compete in international-distance and
relay team competitions on courses. To keep Life Time Tri races accessible to
athletes of all ages, kids events are available in select markets.
