The City of Carlsbad hosts two unique, fun, and challenging races annually.  Each race promotes fitness and recreational competition either individually or with family and friends.

Carlsbad Triathlon

One of the longest running triathlons in the nation, the Carlsbad Triathlon draws over 1,000 participants in a 1K open water swim, a 25k bike, and a 5K run along the scenic Carlsbad coastline. 

Super Hero Obstacle Race

The Super Hero Obstacle Race launched in 2014 sending families dressed in super hero costumes and capes along a 2K course with 20 super hero themed obstacles.  Participants leap tall buildings, capture bad guys, climb through toxic tunnels, and more along the course.
