HAMPTON, Va. — 'Life's a Beach' triathlon is coming to Hampton's Buckroe Beach on June 8.
At the start of the race, there are 200 yards of swimming, but “Almost Anything Goes.” That means racers are allowed to use boogie boards, swim fins, and almost anything to help them feel comfortable and have fun.
The bike portion of the race is only five miles and is for fat tire bikes only. Some courses may actually involve stretches of beach riding.
The final stretch of the triathlon is a two-mile beach run. However, it's laid back and includes obstacles to break up the run in a fun way.
