Triathlon San Diego Esprit de She

San Diego, California

October 18, 2015

Experience the evolution of a series. Staying true to the spirit of her, the Gildan Esprit de She San Diego Triathlon was born out of the successful SheROX Triathlon previously held in San Diego. Held at South Shores Park, a pretty spot just east of SeaWorld San Diego that is protected from the Pacific as part of Mission Bay Park, the plentiful palm trees and sandy beaches, plus views of Fiesta Island, will have you ready for a race in paradise.

Once you reach the finish, the Gildan Esprit de She signature post-race rendezvous awaits! Salute your success at the finish line and enjoy tasty tapas and energetic tunes while browsing our bustling, community market showcasing fresh produce, local artisans, creative projects and more!
