Before we cover the course info, please note the following:
As announced 2008, for those of you that haven’t done Ocean Shores for a while, the roads throughout Ocean Shores have been fixed and raced great since then! The roads are very smooth, and the course is flat. What’s not to like? All events, start and finish at North Bay Park (Chance A La Mer and Albatross). Race day registration is also at North Bay Park.
Note: Information on the routes for the Kid’s Race can be found at the bottom of this page.

Ocean Shores Kid’s & Youth Triathlon Information: The Kid’s and Youth Triathlon is a great way for your kids to have a fun and semi competitive experience, as well as get an introduction to what a triathlon entails. The kids will receive a finishers medal as well as a customized bib for the race. T-Shirts are reserved for the adults, primarily because it is difficult to get shirts that will fit kids properly. This will also be an untimed event, although unofficially we may keep times so you and your kids can see how they did. Please note that we keep this an untimed event primarily because we want the kids to have fun. In 2015 we may add a longer course for kids that will be timed. We are currently in discussion with a national brand to bring on a kids series that takes place on a national level. we will keep you all informed of what happens here as things progress. Following below are the swim, bike and run course for the kids/youth event. Click the links to open an interactive map that you can use to zoom in/out and pan around the maps:
