Via Sarah Reynolds at Charleston County Parks and Recreation Commish …

The Charleston Sprint Triathlon Series (CSTS) is wrapping up its season!

Now in its 23rd year, the CSTS is the area’s premier swim, bike and run event, taking place over a five-race series. Race 5, the Championship, will be held on Sunday, Aug. 11 at James Island County Park.

Athletes are encouraged to sign up in advance, and spectators are welcome. Winners will be awarded from the individual race as well as the entire series.

More than 25,000 athletes have raced in this swim-bike-run series since it began in 1991.

The race begins at 7:15 a.m. with a 600-yard freshwater swim in the lake at James Island County Park, continues with a 12-mile bike ride through the park and out and back on Riverland Drive, and finishes with a flat 5K run.

The race is limited to 400 participants, and fees start at $55 per race.

CSTS offers participation and awards throughout a variety of divisions.

Awards will be presented to the top five men and the top three women finishers in the Open/Elite division. Awards will also be presented to the top three age group winners in five-year increments, as well as to the top male and female finishers over the age of 40 (Masters division).

New this year, awards will also be presented to those with the fastest times in the swim, bike and run legs of the race.

Participants may choose to compete in the Clydesdale (men over 200 pounds), Athena (women over 150 pounds) or Masters Clydesdales (men over age 40 and over 200 pounds) divisions. Awards will be presented to the top three competitors in each of those divisions.
