TriRock recently interviewed our San Diego race director, Cory Osth about some changes for the event in 2016. See below for our chat with Cory.

TriRock: Please introduce yourself and tell us about your background in the sport
Cory Osth: My name is Cory Osth, I am the race director of TriRock San Diego as well as our other races in the TriRock Triathlon Series, plus Nations Tri in Washington DC. I’ve been a triathlete since 2001. The swim and bike have always been my favorite part of racing.

500x300_TRSD2
TR: Tell us about the history of the event
CO: TriRock San Diego began in 2010 in this same venue. We are the only triathlon in downtown San Diego which brings with it special challenges as well as a very rewarding race venue. We’re sort of Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon on a smaller scale as we have music at the venue, on the run course via mile markers with speakers, and a rockin post-race concert.

500x300_TRSD
TR: What sets this race apart from others in SD
CO: With our move to May from our historical September date, we are the earliest non-sprint tri in San Diego with our Intermediate distance race. The bike course rides through the 32nd St Navy base which is obviously off-limits, unless of course you are in the military. It’s a flat and fast course that has really neat views of the Navy ships at their berths. The run course is pancake flat and fast and runs along the edge of San Diego Bay. We utilize a time trial start for the swim which eliminates the wrestling match at the start of swims that people often have anxiety over. As I mentioned above, our post-race party is the best in San Diego with beer and a live concert at the finish line.

TR SD Swim
TR: Tell us what’s new for 2016
CO: The biggest change is obviously the date, but also a new swim course that makes it the fastest swim in San Diego! Due to the steep incoming tide on race morning we are changing the swim course for the Intermediate distance to be a point to point swim. Athletes will walk a short distance to the entry dock adjacent to Embarcadero Marina Park South. From there its an easy swim out into San Diego Bay, a left turn to ride the current towards Coronado Bridge, then a left turn to finish on the Boardwalk as we’ve done in the past. Its safe and very fast. Come crush your swim PR this year.

New Date, Course Improvements Announced for TriRock San Diego

City of San Diego’s Largest Triathlon to Take Place in May with Faster Swim Course

SAN DIEGO, CA – February 2, 2016 –TriRock San Diego today announced a new springtime date of May 22, 2016 making it the first international triathlon distance of the year in San Diego. Also new in 2016, the international distance will feature a point-to-point swim course giving competitors the best chance to set new personal records.

“The new swim course will certainly help our triathletes set new personal records and beat their goals,” said Cory Osth, race director. “A point-to-point system means the participants will be swimming with the current caused by the incoming tide instead of against it, allowing for the best conditions for the competitors. This could very well be the fastest 1500m swim course in SoCal.”

TR SD Swim

TriRock San Diego returns with both sprint (500 meter swim, 11 mile bike, 3 mile run) and intermediate (1500 meter swim, 22 mile bike, 6 mile run) distance events. The new date makes the San Diego race the first of the year for the TriRock Triathlon Series, which will take place in 6 cities across the nation in 2016.

The downtown San Diego event starts at 6:30 am and features a protected swim course in San Diego Harbor. The newly designed swim course will start on the docks in front of the Marriot Marina, just a short walk from the transition area behind the San Diego Convention Center. The urban triathlon features a flat and fast bike course showcasing great views of the Coronado Bridge and laps around the 32nd street Naval Base. The event concludes with a run along the San Diego Harbor, passing the USS Midway before a red carpet finish along the waterfront.

The 7th annual event is known as a rockin’ competition, followed by a post-race party and concert. Participants will receive a finisher’s medal, technical t-shirt, post-race breakfast and access to the concert and beer garden. The Finish Line Festival, located behind the San Diego Convention Center, will feature a multi-sport expo, refreshments and entertainment for the whole family.

A perfect race for first timers, the swim course features a comprehensive buoy system which marks every 100 meters of for both the Sprint and Olympic distances. The buoy system provides clear swim course sighting for participants and enhances general water safety measures.

An Expo and Packet Pick-up will be held behind the San Diego Convention Center adjacent to the Bayfront Hilton from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm on Saturday, May 21. Participants can pick up race packets, attend safety and course briefings and mingle through the exhibitors and sponsors at the Expo.
