Under Armour running gearAttention all you triathletes! For the fifth consecutive year, Emerald Isle NC will host the Emerald Isle Triathlon Saturday, October 18, 2008 starting at 8:00a.m. It will consist of a 750-meter ocean swim, followed by a 12-mile bike race and concluding with a 5K run. Last year, more than 200 competed, so if you are into triathlons, don't miss out!

The swim will take place in the Atlantic Ocean. Then, contestants will compete in an out-and-back bike race ending up with the 5K out-and-back run, both on paved roads.

The Emerald Isle Triathlon is a great race for many area triathletes. Most local runners are excited that they can participate in the triathlon right in their own backyard and sleep in their own beds!

There will be awards for the top three male and top three female finishers, plus the top three finishers in each of these age divisions:
