The Stansbury Triathlon is the last local open-water race of the 2011 season. This race takes place at Stansbury Park Lake, located just 20 minutes from Downtown Salt Lake. This beautiful community offers triathletes of all experience levels a great open-water swim, a fast bike course and a great run through the community and out onto "the island". The Transition Area is ideally located right next to the lake and provides athletes a fast transition from the swim and onto the bike where this super fast course will take you through some country roads. With loads of open space and flat straight-aways you'll be able to see the competition, making for a fun and exciting race.
SWIM (750 Meters Sprint / 1500 Meters Olympic)
WETSUITS ARE HIGHLY ENCOURAGED! Need a wetsuit? Elite Trisports is our official wetsuit sponsor.
The swim course will take place the the west of the boat ramp. (Do not walk on the boat ramp as it is extremely slippery) The swim course will consist of a single 750 meter loop which will be completed one time by Sprint-distance athletes and twice by Olympic-distance athletes. Racers will begin the swim portion in waves, determined by age group and distance. Waves will begin approximately 5 to 10 minutes apart, depending on number of racers. Once a racer completes the swim portion of the race, they will run to the transition area, where they will prepare for the bike portion of the race. Olympic swimmers will complete 2 loops.
BIKE COURSE (20K Sprint MAP / 40K Olympic MAP) RUN (5K Sprint / 10K Olympic MAP)
The run course will begin at the transition area and will take athletes back across the bridge to the lake area. Athletes will then transition onto Lakeview Road and follow that around onto the island. At the end of the island is a roundabout which will allow athletes to make the return trip back to the finish line. Olympic athletes will turn around and complete the course twice by using the turnaround at the Golf Clubhouse which will be clearly marked. The race will finish by the large Pavilion located on the Golf Course near the Transition Area.

All event parking will be at the LDS Chapel located on 417 E. Benson Rd. Parking Map
There is absolutely no parking at the Clubhouse near the lake! Athletes parking there will seriously damage our chances of holding a race there again. It is a short walk from the chapel to the Transition Area. Please park at the Chapel and then walk to the TA. If you have family or friends with you, we would suggest leaving them on the curb by the entrance to the TA (It will save them the walk...)
