The eleventh Las Palomas Rocky Point Triathlon is scheduled for 29, 2006 - see the organizer's site at tucsonracing.com.
Puerto Penasco has been hosting an increasing number of triathlons that have been been gaining in popularity since it began in 1995. The organizers recently added a 10k road race to the event list as well. www.tucsonracing.com is the organizer's site for these events.
Penasco has a winning combination for a triathlon - the climate in March/April is just right (read: not blazingly hot) roads with some variation in elevation for biking, and enough cheap hotels and establishments to accommodate an influx of a few thousand athletes and their families. Combined with the usual Penasco party atmosphere, I hear it is a great race.
And to quote the tucsonracing.com website - 'The finish line will be stocked with soda, water and Tecate beer'. Enough said.
The event sponosors, tucsonracing.com have all of the organizational details, but we've dug out a few other sites related to the Penasco Triathlon for you to check it out. We'll hopefully getting more information (and photos) about this event up in the future.
This company handled the race photographs for the last Rocky Point Triathlon - they'll give you an idea what the course and terrain look like.

Excerpt: "I like the idea of this race because Mexico rocks. The Rocky Point Triathlon must be the biggest triathlon now in Mexico, ergo this race must double-rock."
