sports@islandpacket.comMay 16, 2014 

The Hilton Head Island Triathlon, hosted by Go Tri Sports, is coming to Coligny Beach at 7 a.m. Saturday for its 18th running.

Reportedly one of the fastest triathlons in the Southeast, thanks to a flat course, the race features a 500-meter swim, a 12.5-mile bike ride and a 3.1-mile run. The course friendly to spectators.

If you want to compete, it's not too late. While online registration has ended, athletes can sign up from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday at packet pickup at Go Tri Sports on Hilton Head Island. Or they can register on race day until 30 minutes before the race at the race site.

Cost is $65 per individual, $90 per team.
