The triathlon has three distances available – a sprint course (three-mile run, 10-mile bike ride and 400-yard swim), a long course (six-mile run, 20-mile bike ride and 800-yard swim) and a relay sprint course with the same distances as the sprint course. The run and bike routes go through the neighborhoods around Pacheco High, and the swim portion takes place in Pacheco High’s pool.
