Life's A Beach encourages people to "catch the new wave of triathlon," with its unique take on a sport most people often associate with grueling training regimes and expensive, high-tech equipment.
The Life's A Beach swim is 200 yards of "Almost Anything Goes," with racers allowed to use boogie boards, swim fins, mask and snorkels, water wings, and almost anything else to help them feel comfortable and have fun. The bike portion of the race is only five miles and is for fat tire bikes only—beach cruisers and mountain bikes—as some courses may actually involve stretches of beach riding. The two-mile beach run is laid back and includes some of the Life's A Beach challenges—obstacles to break up the run in a fun way.
Awards will be given to the Top Dudes and Dudettes, Top Slackers, Most Bodacious Bike Decorating, and Coolest Costume.
There will be an Awards Ceremony and Bodacious Beach Bash After-Party following the event.
