Maps and Course Information
SWIM (750 Meters Sprint / 1500 Meters Olympic)
The 2011 and 2012 open-water swim course was a huge success. Our athletes loved the point-to-point swim and the course will remain the same in 2013.
***Unless you are a highly experienced open-water swimmer, please, wear a wetsuit!!!***
Water temperatures are expected to be approximately 67 degrees.
Q. Do I need a wetsuit for an open-water swim?
A. Yes. Even when the water is warm, we highly recommend wetsuits for open-water swimming. Triathlon-specific suits are not just for warmth, but also buoyancy. It is a question of safety and we highly recommend them, especially for beginners.
BIKE COURSE (23.5K Sprint / 33K Olympic)
Athletes will head West onto Daybreak View Parkway and will follow it around the roundabout to 11800 south. Bikers will continue due west on a false flat until reaching the Bacchus highway. Making a left hand turn onto Bacchus, racers will conquer two challenging hills going past the entrance to the Kennecott Copper mines to the turnaround. Sprint-distance racers will complete one revolution and return to the transition area. Olympic-distance racers will continue past the mine entrance into Herriman City on U-111 (which turns into 13100 S.) and will make their turn-around just before 6400 West.
RUN (5K Sprint / 10K Olympic)
The run course will begin at the transition area and follow the paved trails around Oquirrh Lake. The 3.25 mile loop will be completed once by Sprint-distance racers and twice by Olympic-distance athletes. The run course is flat and smooth and should make for a fast race to the finish. With good sight lines, racers will be able to see the competition and challenge each other to the finish.
