St Croix Triathlon

    "There is a reason I have returned to St Croix’s triathlon for over 20 years. The people, the challenge of the course, the food; it is truly a race you cannot miss on your bucket-list."

SAVE THE DATE! Dec 2, 2018

The US Virgin Island of St Croix will again be home to a major triathlon on December 2, 2018. This will mark the 30th year our beautiful island has hosted athletes from around the world, making this course one of the longest-running triathlons on record. Home to previous races such as “America’s Paradise Triathlon”, “Beauty and the Beast”, and “IRONMAN 70.3® St. Croix”, St. Croix's new race is a must-do event for triathletes worldwide. A gorgeous swim in Christiansted harbor transitions to a scenic yet challenging ride that takes athletes up the world-famous 15% average grade climb known as “The Beast”. The run goes east from Christiansted, through the glorious grounds of The Buccaneer Beach and Golf Resort. Athletes are cheered on by residents, volunteers and entertainers across the island, and festivities occur throughout the day and night in Christiansted.

Three races will be offered: Long Distance Course, Sprint and for the first time, a Sprint Aquathlon.  Relays are offered in the Long Distance Course and Sprint Triathlon races. In addition, the Long Distance Course race is designated as the Caribbean Long Distance Triathlon Championship.

The 2018 St. Croix Triathlon is being run by VI TRI a 501(c)(3) non-profit, raising funds for St. Croix Animal Welfare CenterMy Brothers' Table, and Boys and Girls Club of St. Croix. These organizations were impacted by Hurricane Maria in September 2017.  “The Race to Rebuild” will feature several clinics, parties and entertainment offerings over several days leading up the Sunday races.  Iconic professional triathletes from past years will be present to give clinics and to share stories of their extraordinary racing careers.


What Professional Triathletes Are Saying

"Racing in St. Croix is true triathlon. Every resident embraces the event. No exaggeration. I never saw a car on the bike course on race day. Racing in St. Croix embodies all that is good about triathlon. We raced hard. But the biggest takeaways were the relationships we built with the local families. Those priceless memories are lasting a lifetime."
