Ocean Champions is the only political voice for ocean health. We take a non-partisan approach in working with
the U.S. Congress to ensure ocean health through electoral and legislative action.

Ocean Health = Human Health (so let’s swim, run and bike!)

Ocean Champions is proud to announce that we have signed on as the presenting sponsor for the Long Bay Triathlon, to be held October 10th at Huntington Beach State Park in South Carolina.  The Long Bay Triathlon will allow athletes to choose from from a sprint distance race, (a .5 mile swim, a 15 mile bike, and a 3.1 mile run) or a half iron man (1.2 mile swim, a 56 mile bike, and a 13.1 mile run) with ocean, beach, trail and road sections.  Ocean Champions believes that ocean health is closely linked to human health, and sponsoring this triathlon is a great way to demonstrate that connection.

In addition to sponsoring the race, two Ocean Champions staffers (me and Chris Laughlin) will be competing.  Of course, as soon as Chris and I committed to the event, our competitive juices flared up, and the taunting began.  Chris thinks just because she is younger, faster, better conditioned and possesses a wide array of super powers, that she’ll be able to leave me in the dust.  I know, however, that old age and treachery are fabulous substitutes for her obvious advantages and am hoping that my edge in buoyancy will carry the day!

Regardless of who wins, the event will be a lot of fun, and we hope many of you will enter the race with us.  We’d love the chance to meet more of our friends in the community - you could choose to run in the front (with me) or way in the back (with Chris)!   offers a beautiful venue for the event, and you can round out your weekend there with camping, kayaking and birding.  At this point, you’ve got 253 days to train, so there are no excuses!
