2019 Cal Tri Events Oxnard - Cancellation Notice

It is with sadness that we announce the cancellation of 2019 Cal Tri Events Oxnard, originally scheduled for Sunday, September 29, 2019 at Oxnard Beach Park.  Anyone currently registered for 2019 Cal Tri Events Oxnard has the choice to transfer to another race (2019 Cal Tri Events LA - 10.26.19 or 2019 Cal Tri Events Newport Dunes - 11.3.19), or receive a full refund.  

  • TRANSFER OPTION (SEP 12 DEADLINE).  Put that training to good use.  Oxnard athletes need to email me by Thursday, September 12, 2019 to transfer to either of the following races: 2019 Cal Tri Events LA - 10.26.19 or 2019 Cal Tri Events Newport Dunes - 11.3.19 
  • REFUND OPTION (SEP 13 REFUND).  Refunds, including race and the RunSignUp processing fee, will be automatically generated on Friday, September 13, 2019 for all athletes that do not use the transfer options (above).  You need to do nothing in this case.

For those that wonder, the decision to cancel was due to a recent sharp increase in municipality fees that make the race untenable this year and the foreseeable future.  In several cases, fees were double the original guidance.  This thwarted our ability to extend our success at our LA & Newport Dunes races where registration is nicely up in 2019.  

Thank you for your understanding, and for your patronage of our events.  We look forward to seeing you at one of our other events.

OXNARD.  Just sixty miles northwest of Los Angeles, you’ll find the casual, seaside city of Oxnard where oceanfront recreation, fabulous festivals, sweet strawberries, exceptional weather and miles of uncrowded beaches await your discovery.  Home to the California Strawberry Festival, and neighbor to the breathtaking Channel Islands National Park and Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary, Oxnard is a welcomed retreat any time of year.   This is the venue for 2019 Cal Tri Events Oxnard - 9.29.19 and the 1st race in the 2019 Cal Tri Events Fall Series - 2019 Cal Tri Events Oxnard - 9.29.19, 2019 Cal Tri Events LA - 10.26.19 & 2019 Cal Tri Events Newport Dunes - 11.3.19.  


RACE HIGHLIGHTS.  Cal Tri Events Oxnard features 12 options with 6 each at both the sprint & Olympic distance:  triathlon, triathlon relay, swimbike, swimrun, swim and run. The sprint distance is a 400 yard swim, 8.5 mile bike and 5K run.  The Olympic distance is a 0.93 mile swim, 25.5 mile bike (3 loops) and 10K run (2 loops).  The course starts on the white sands of Oxnard Beach with a humane & safe rolling ocean swim start paralleling the shoreline.  Athletes will then enjoy a fast and flat route along local strawberry fields with scenic views throughout the entire route.
