Palmetto Dunes

Prepare for the Hilton Head Triathlon at Palmetto Dunes

On Saturday, May 21, 450 athletes will test their strength, endurance and mental toughness by participating in the Hilton Head Triathlon presented by CalU. Beginning at 7 a.m., you’ll see these men and women complete a 500-meter swim, 20-km bike ride and finish up with a 5k run.

If you’re coming in town for the race and need some practice before the big day or if you just want to get out and complete your own “triathlon,” we have some ideas for you.

Rent a bike from Hilton Head Outfitters and explore all 5 miles of paved bike paths within Palmetto Dunes. Once you’ve mastered those, there are more than 50 miles of bike paths throughout the island just waiting to be explored! Palmetto Dunes is also home to 3 miles of beaches, which is the perfect spot to get in a good run or jog and then jump in the ocean for some swimming conditioning!

If you’re looking for other activities to keep you in shape while in Hilton Head, consider our cardio tennis classes, kayaking or stand up paddle boarding. All are exciting and provide a great workout!

Good luck Triathlon participants. Let us know how you do!
