Sprint, Olympic and Relay

One of the mostly highly anticipated activities in Puerto Peñasco is the annual Spring Rocky Point Triathlon.  The Rocky Point Triathlon at Las Palomas Beach & Golf Resort was voted one of the top triathlons by Triathlete Magazine.  With its beautiful sandy beaches, relaxed atmosphere and the best post race party, this is the ideal race for veterans and first timers alike who want to experience something different than the traditional triathlon races.

This event features a Sprint distance triathlon and an Olympic distance. The finish takes place 200 yards from the beach, right in front of the Las Palomas resort where cold beer, food and music will await you.


The swim takes place in the Sea of Cortes in front of Las Palomas Resort.  If the water temperature is 84.0 degrees or higher, the use of wet-suits will be prohibited for safety purposes.

The run section of the race is on the rolling cart paths of the Las Palomas resort golf course.  The 5K & 10K running races will use the same course as the triathlons.
