SWIM COURSE(750 Meters Sprint / 1500 Meters Olympic). The open-water swim course has been a huge success in the past few years. Our athletes loved the point-to-point swim and the course will remain the same this year.

***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. While wetsuits are not required, 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

 

The bike course begins as athletes exit in the SW corner of the transition area onto the cobblestone pathway, heading towards Lake Ave.  Athletes will be required to run alongside their bikes on the pathway until they reach the mounting zone on Lake Ave. Riders will continue along Lake Ave as the road follows the perimeter of the lake, with the road eventually turning and heading West towards Mountain View Corridor.  As athletes head West, they will cross train tracks at Grandville Ave. There is a traffic light at the Trax crossing and athletes MUST stop at this intersection at a red light. (The train departs from the nearest trax station approximately every 20 minutes and takes less than 5 seconds to clear the intersection).  Any athlete that crosses through the intersection during a red light will be disqualified from the race. Traffic officers will be assisting at this intersection.

 

After crossing the train tracks, athletes will continue heading West through Mountain View Corridor and eventually making a left turn at Kitty Hawk Road/Mustang Trail Way.  Athletes will head South on Mustang Trail Way and turn right on Herriman Blvd to complete an out and back and turn right back onto Mustang Trial way. Sprint athletes will continue until Herriman Main Street and then turn around and head back to the finish. Olympic athletes will turn right on Herriman Main Street, ride up to Kennecott Copper Mine and then return on the same course to the finish. 


RUN COURSE (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.
