The athletes participating in the Outer Banks Triathlon train for months to achieve their dream. Why do they do it? For some it's to win, some it's for their best personal time, and for some it’s a personal goal on their bucket list. Individual athletes and relay teams exhibit various ranges of skill and expertise. The enthusiasm of the athletes is inspirational for everyone at the site, whether a volunteer, a spectator, or staff. Encouraging and cheering the athletes onward is a crucial part of the day. It is two days of inspiration, excitement, relationships, and achievements. Come to the Outer Banks Triathlon and experience it all! This USAT-sanctioned event includes custom-designed finisher medals, SWAG, and a post-race party with free beer and food for all finishers. Be a part of a relay team, or join in on the Challenge.

Packet Pick-up and Need2Know: Triathlon and Aquabike

  • All athletes are required to show a photo ID.
  • Have your bib number ready! You will receive this in an email within the week before the race. If you don’t know your bib number, there will be a separate line up to request it. Knowing your bib number expedites the pick-up process.

USAT Rules: Athletes may only pick up their own packets. Under no circumstances may an athlete pick up a packet for another person. All relay members must be present to receive the packet or we will split up the relay packet for each participant. Youth athletes without an ID must be accompanied by a parent/guardian with a photo ID. Parents cannot pick-up if the youth athlete is not with them.
