Ten Triathlons Worth Training For

Here are 10 of the coolest, most challenging triathlons in the United States. Trust us: They’re fully worth the blood, sweat, and tears.

Kiawah, SC – September

Brand new in 2013, the South Carolina tri takes athletes into the ocean for a swim along the gorgeous Atlantic coastline, then in and out of nature. (The barrier island is a hotbed for wildlife like sea turtles, deer, and various species of birds.) After you’ve crossed the finish line, celebrate by checking into the Kiawah Island Golf Resort, one of the more prestigious resorts in the country, and unwinding in the Sanctuary Spa with an Athletic Recovery Massage (or a kayak trip on the marsh and a round of golf if you’re not too spent).
