TRANSITION/ FINISH AREA
The transition area will be comprised of one transition area with roped-oﬀ bike racks where racers leave their bike and gear. Racers return to the transition area after each portion of the triathlon to prepare for the next portion of the race. The Finish line and medical tent will be adjacent to the transition area as well as the porta potties.
The swim portion of the race will take place at the JL Sorensen Recreation Center pool. Athletes will enter the water at timed intervals to alleviate overcrowding in the pool. The swim will be completed in a zigzag fashion with athletes swimming under lane lines at the end of each up and back lap. After completing the swim, athletes will exit the swim area and make their way to the transition. 400 Yard Swim

IMPORTANT INFO: Herriman City and Policy department will have officers on course. They have told us that they will do their very best to stop traffic at the lights but because the roads are not fully closed, we need to obey all traffic laws and ride to the right of the road as safely as possible and stop at lights if red and the officer hasn't stopped traffic.
We know this is different from other races, but we must be safe and respect the city's rules to have event's years to come. So when coming to an intersection, please make eye contact with the officers and double-check the traffic before proceeding to ensure it's safe. Most of the lights are at the beginning of the course, and the traffic will be limited on a Saturday morning, so the race will still be fast.
Awards for the overall top three male and female winners. This is a USAT certified event and top racers in each age group will be eligible to qualify for Age Group Nationals. The number of qualifying spots is determined by the number of athletes in each age group.
Finish Line Area:
Finisher Medals, Age Group Medals, and Athlete Food will be available in the finish line area. If you are meeting friends or family members after the race, please move away from the finish line after receiving your medal to avoid congestion.
Temperatures can be from 50-70 degrees on race day. The morning will be cold, so dress appropriately for transition set up. Being a sprint, and a fast course you won't be exposed long so take that into consideration.
