Our Races

The March Triathlon Series is the longest running collegiate triathlon in the West Coast. The event started as a senior project in 1998 and was held on campus at Cal Poly. Race participants joined from Cal Poly, Santa Barbara, and Cal Berkeley with a total of 15 racers. The spring race served as a warm up for Wildflower, which was the collegiate national championship race. Eventually, the race grew and moved to Lake Lopez, Arroyo Grande in 2004, where it transformed into the March Triathlon Series.

First held in 2024, this race is designed to be inclusive and accessible for athletes of all skill levels. Unlike other races, it emphasizes participation and enjoyment in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. The low-stakes nature encourages both beginners and seasoned racers to compete without intense pressure, making it an excellent opportunity for newcomers to experience draft-legal racing. Racers are organized into small waves to manage the event flow, and the super sprint format, shorter and more intense, allows participants to race multiple times throughout the morning, enhancing both fun and performance improvement. 

Prepare your stomach for the sweetest race of the year: the Tour de Donut. Eat as many donuts as you can and use your sugar-rush as fuel as you race to the top of Prefumo Canyon.
Victory has never tasted so sweet...
