Come join us for this world-renown event at beautiful Lake Cahuilla in La Quinta. Nestled against the awesome Santa Rosa Mountains and only 30 minutes from Palm Springs, this venue offers tremendous vistas while providing a very fast and fun race course. There are awards, music, prizes and post-race refreshments. All entrants receive a beautiful poly-pro tech race shirt and all finishers receive a medal. There are additional awards for top three men, women and relay teams in each age group. The sprint course is a great first timer event. We also have relay teams in both events.

The Desert Triathlon will also host the Triathlon Club Championship where your club will compete for cash and prizes while having a blast. We have over 75 different clubs from around the country and Canada compete for the title. We offer two categories, a small club category (175 active members or less) and a large club category (over 175 active members).
