All Out Events returns with the 7th annual Morro Bay Triathlon which offers both Olympic and Sprint distances. Racers will navigate a protected harbor with traditional swimming or an optional paddle, bike iconic Highway 1, and run beach and board walk to an epic photo finish under the Gibraltar of the Pacific: Morro Rock.

As with the All Out Events Dawn to Dusk Adventure Race (see above), event proceeds from the Morro Bay Triathlon support local search and rescue as well as Water Run, an international charity bringing fresh water to places in need.


Substitute the swim portion with kayak or stand up paddle boarding

If you don’t swim or you’re a kayaking/stand up paddle board fiend you can substitute the swim portion of the triathlon with a paddle. The course tours Morro Bay in clockwise direction, course and turns are clearly marked with buoys. The paddle starts and ends at Mothers Beach.

Ocean sit-on-tops, touring kayaks, surf skis, and stand up paddle boards are all welcome.

The paddle option will be divided between Kayaks and SUP

  • The Olympic course is 3 miles
    The Sprint course is 1.6 miles

You will be in a separate category from the other triathletes if you choose the paddle option.


Pre-Race Clinics
4 Race Clinics in 2017: Morro Bay Tri will be offering FOUR pre-race clinics throughout the year to get you familiar with the course and the area! This is two more than what we offered in 2016 due to high demand! We will also cover basic USAT rules, transition, and some helpful tips to help you prepare for your race in November!

Note: We will be previewing the sprint distance course by swimming, biking and running, so please be prepared with the appropriate gear(gear list below)! Please keep in mind that this is a group clinic, and not a race!
