Palm Springs, CA

The event in Palm Springs, California is the crown jewel of the HITS Triathlon Series and will once again be the home of the 2018 HITS Triathlon Series Championship. The Coachella Valley is a stunning venue that offers beautiful vistas in a dry and sunny climate, perfect for a December triathlon. The course in Palm Springs is fast and awesomely scenic!

Riverside County Parks and Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) have announced a wetsuit safety protocol for triathlon events using Lake Cahuilla in La Quinta, CA.  The protocol is designed to eliminate the possibility of introducing the quagga mussel into Lake Cahuilla and the CVWD water system and will be in effect for the 2018 HITS Triathlon Series – Palm Springs that will take place on December 1-2, 2018.
