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. 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.
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 into Silver Mine Road as the road heads 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 Stream Park Drive. Athletes will head South on Kitty Hawk Road/Mustang Trail Way, making a right hand turn on 118th South, heading towards the Kennecott Copper Mine. Heading west on 11800 South, athletes will experience a false flat with a narrow shoulder. (All athletes are required to ride single file per USAT rules, using caution when passing another rider). Athletes will continue heading West on 11800 South, eventually making a left hand turn on U-111. Shortly after this turn, athletes will have two small hills to conquer. Once at the top of the second hill, near the mine entrance road, athletes will then experience a long, winding down hill with the road eventually changing to Main Street in Herriman City. As athletes head East on Main Street, they will make a left hand turn on 6000 W. Athletes will continue on 6000 W until they reach 11800 South. Those athletes doing the Olympic distance, will make a left hand turn on 11800 South, to do a second loop. Those athletes doing the Sprint distance, will continue straight through the intersection onto Stream Park Drive. On Stream Park Drive, athletes will turn right onto Silver Mine Road, heading back East across Mountain View Corridor and across the train tracks. (see note above about the requirement for all athletes to stop at the trax crossing during a red light). Athletes will continue on Silver Mine Road until the road merges with Lake Run Ave back towards the transition area and the bike dismount.
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.
