Charleston’s Premier Endurance Competition:
The 23rd Annual Charleston Sprint Triathlon Series Kicks Off May 19

[JAMES ISLAND] – Do you have what it takes to compete in one of the Lowcountry’s toughest and longest-running endurance competitions? The Charleston Sprint Triathlon Series (CSTS) is kicking off its 23rd year of challenging athletes to the area’s premier swim, bike and run event at James Island County Park. Registration is open now and the first race starts May 19.

Athletes are encouraged to sign up for one race, or compete in multiple or all of the five-race series. Winners will be awarded from each individual race as well as the entire series. The 2013 series will be held on May 19, June 16, July 7, and July 28, with the Championship Race set for Aug. 11.

Nearly 25,000 athletes have raced in this swim-bike-run series since it began in 1991. It has been honored as one of the Top Ten Charleston Signature Sport Events by the Charleston Metro Sports Council, placing it in good company with other Charleston favorites like the Family Circle Tennis Cup and the Cooper River Bridge Run.

Each race begins at 7:15 a.m. with a 600-yard freshwater swim in the lake at James Island County Park, continues with a 12-mile bike ride through the park and out and back on Riverland Drive, and finishes with a flat 5K run.
