St. Croix Triathlon

The St Croix Triathlon is one of the longest-running triathlons on record. Previously known as ‘America’s Paradise Triathlon’, ‘Beauty and the Beast’, and ‘Ironman 70.3 St. Croix’, the St. Croix Triathlon is a must-do event for triathletes. As of 2021, the race has a new venue, new distances, but the same great vibe!

The race takes place from Cramer’s Park with three races are offered for participants: Olympic-Distance Triathlon, Sprint-Distance Triathlon and a Sprint-Distance Aquathlon. The swim takes place beginning at the Cramer’s Park Beach and consists of a half mile counter-clockwise triangular course in Cottongarden Bay. The bike portion takes place along the South Shore Road. From the transition area, runners will run east for 1.5 miles to Point Udall, the eastern-most point of the United States. At the top of Udall, run clockwise around the monument and back to transition where you’ll turn around and head out for your second and final loop. For details on this year’s course, visit

Sponsored by the USVI Department of Tourism, and sanctioned by USA Triathlon, the event will be under the direction of Scott Fricks and Theresa Harper, both from St Croix. For those interested in participating, registration will be available on, and early entry discounts will apply. Further information will be available at and
