PC Racing in partnership with NEW YORK TRIATHLETE ASSOCIATION is proud to be bringing back for a second year our EPIC triathlon-based adventure race to the beautiful Caribbean island of Curaçao.
The PC Racing organization continues to challenge ourselves, teammates, partners, and participants are to interactively promote exciting community ideas and adventures that push our imaginations of what is possible in sport, health, and well-being. In keeping with the spirit of our mission, we bring back the wildly successful adventure race for March 2022!!
Curaçao continues to be a preeminent tourist destination in the Caribbean. This Dutch Caribbean island is known for its quaint, picturesque beaches tucked into interesting coves and expansive coral reefs teeming with rich marine life.
Curaçao is the perfect place to host this exciting adventure race and leverage its incredible and interesting features to put this amazing island on the map as a premier “RaceCation” destination. And to quote World Champion Triathlete Tim Don, “People will want to come here because it’s something they cannot do anywhere else in the world!”
"S.O.S.” describes The Survival of the Shawangunks, a non-traditional adventure triathlon established in 1983. This race, historically an eight-stage multi-discipline triathlon is held in New Paltz, NY every September and is the brainchild of Don Davis, a veteran Triathlete and founder of the New York Triathlete Association. This adventure race is consistently ranked among the best adventure triathlons in the world, and one of most scenic. S.O.S. has become a right of passage in the world of Triathlon and so popular that every year the event sells out in mere minutes. This one of a kind race format is unique, exciting, technical and to quote Don, “It’s not just a race, it’s combination triathlon and ADVENTURE!”.The popularity and desire for additional races like Survival of the Shawangunks inspired Don his son Evan and his team to look for other exceptionally challenging and scenic locations to host similar events. Don and Evan have been instrumental in the success of S.O.S., its expansion, and will play a major role in this new event.
PC Racing is humbled and excited to continue our partnership with the S.O.S. Organization and bring this dynamic race to life once again!
