[ARCHIVED] Take the Folly Beach Challenge!


If you enjoy triathlons, here’s one with a few twists! The Folly Beach Challenge, Saturday, October 22, is an exciting alternative to the traditional triathlon, and a great competition for paddling enthusiasts.

The Folly Beach Challenge is a nontraditional triathlon featuring a 3-mile paddle, an 8.5-mile bike and a 3-mile run on Folly Beach. Participants can compete individually or as one leg of a three-person team. Participants will paddle the Folly River in their own kayak, then hit the sand on their bikes and finish up with an ocean-side run on the beach.

As Folly Beach County Park will be closed for the remainder of 2011, the layout of the 3rd annual Folly Beach Challenge Triathlon has changed since last year’s event. The main staging area has been moved to the Folly Beach Fishing Pier, and the course route has changed.
