The Gulf Coast Triathlon is the country’s oldest not-for-profit triathlon.

Our longevity can be attributed to a loyal participant base and the 2000-plus volunteers who support us every year. We know we would not be a world-class race without our wonderful volunteers and the Bay County community. The GCT is proud to donate all race proceeds to local charities. 

In the past nine years, the Gulf Coast Triathlon Foundation has donated nearly $500,000 to local youth organizations, school sports programs, the PCB Police Dept Cops n’Kids program, the Florida Sheriff ‘s Youth Ranch, the Panama City Swim Team, the Panama City Marine Institute, St. Andrews State Park, and the Aquatic Center at Frank Brown Park.
