That Sounds Rad, Tell Me More!

Join us for the 3rd annual Brineman Triathlon! This event not only boasts a spectator friendly swim, a bike course you’ve only dreamt of and a fast/ flat run, but this year it’s also the home of the first ever Olympic Course Utah State Triathlon Championship. Woot woot! The Sprint course is incredible, but if you want to see something really special, start training now and step up to  the Olympic or Long Course for scenery that will blow your mind.

With this course catching big traction in 2017, sign up soon as this race will sell out early in 2018!

SWIM

Swim: Sprint 750m | Olympic 1500m | Long Course 1.2mi

Just keep swimming…
- Dory

The expected water temp in September, is between 62-69º.

At the swim start, please look for the signs for average 100 yard swim paces and seed yourself according to your swimming ability. From here we will be conducting a rolling start. What does this mean? We will funnel athletes through a chute, approximately 10 feet wide, into the water. Once you cross the timing mat, your race time starts. Why the rolling start? If everyone seeds themselves correctly, it’s safer, reduces congestion, and athletes can start together with friends and family members regardless of age/gender.

All distances begin the swim by entering and finishing on the southwest lake. Thank you Still Water Estates for letting us play in your lake for the morning!

Enter the swim chute entrance when it’s your race distances turn.

The Sprint course consists of a single 750m loop, while the Olympic course consists of a single .9 mile loop.

The Long Course swim is a 1.2 mile swim consisting of a small .2 mile loop, followed by a full 1 mile loop around the perimeter of the lake and east island.

Still Water is 7’ deep and is about 40’ wide. In the event that you need to get out, it’s easy to get to the side of this lake.

Kayaks and SUP’s will be monitoring the water portion of the event.

If you find yourself in need of support while in the water, simply wave your hand/ arms or swim to the nearest support team member. You may hold on to any support vessel without penalty as long as there is no forward movement. If, for any reason, you need to cut your swim short,  let the water support team know and give them your race number.They will bring you to back to land.

Gear bags:

Each athlete will be provided a gear bag. YOU MUST mark your bag with your number and place ALL of your swim gear (including your wetsuit) in the bag before leaving T1 on the bike. If your gear bag is not marked, or if you left something out of the bag (like a $400 wetsuit), we will have no idea who’s it is and it will be set-aside at T2. Per USAT rules, you also risk a 2 minute penalty if you do not place all items in your T1 gear bag. DO NOT LEAVE valuable items such as phones, keys, etc. in your gear bag. Because space is limited in T1 and in the transportation vehicles, we will not shuttle down items that were not a necessity for your race. For example: a folding camp chair so you can sit down to put on your bike shoes is not a necessity, we thank you for the new chair though!

TriUtah staff and the rad volunteers will transport all gear bags to T2 for you.

BIKE

Sprint 14.07 miles | Olympic 25.75 miles | Long Course 56 miles

As long as I breathe, I attack…
- Bernard Henault

Depending on road construction near the bike start, we may need to adjust this portion of the course. We will update as we get closer to event day.

Sprint bike course:

Upon exiting the swim, cyclists will ride west on the LEFT hand side of the road, between the curb and cones, eventually turning left for

1/2 to Bluff Street.

The last portion of all bike courses is on a narrow bike trail. Athletes turn left (north), just

past the lakes, onto the bike trail heading to T2. This is a 1/2 mile narrow trail. Be careful on this trail as we don’t want to fish any of you out of the irrigation canal. (Although you’d probably get a ton of likes if we posted that video.)

Athletes will dismount just before T2 and get ready for the fast and flat run.

NOTE: There are NO aid stations on the bike course. Please have at least 2 bottles of water on your bike before heading out.

Olympic bike course:

Upon exiting the swim, cyclists will ride west on the LEFT hand side of the road, between the curb and cones, eventually turning left for 1/2 to Bluff Street.

Long Course:

Get ready for the coolest bike course you’ve ever done. Antelope Island on a bike is out of this freaking world!

Upon exiting the swim, cyclists will ride west on the LEFT hand side of the road, between the curb and cones, eventually turning left for 1/2 to Bluff Street.

NOTE: There are 2 aid stations on the long course bike. Each will have water, electrolyte replacement and gels. (We’ll update exact product as we get a little closer to race day)

RUN

Sprint 3.1 miles | Olympic 6.2 miles | Long Course 13.1 miles

Life is short... running makes it seem longer…
- Baron Hansen

After exiting transition, get ready for your flat and fast course. You’ll be done before you know it!

All run courses are on the same out and back routes. The course is on paved bike trails heading north, parallel to Bluff Street in Syracuse. You’ll run to your turnaround and head back to your finish.

For the Long Course athletes, you will have 2 loops of the Olympic course. Watch for your turnaround signs and make your way back to your squad at the finish line!

Aid stations are at every mile. Each aid station will have water, electrolyte replacement, high fives and music! Bring it babies!

Kids Triathlon

Short triathlon for kids 11 and under called the Shark Attack!

It consists of a 100 yard swim, 1 mile bike, & 1/4 mile run. Kids will swim at Still Water Lakes, bike to Jensen Park on the paved trail, and run around the park. Parents are invited but not required, to accompany their little brinemen and brinewomen.

Last year we had some fast little dudes. Believe me, I tried catching the first place kid and about puked!

Your Finish!

Congratulations friends! You finished the Brineman triathlon! We hope you had a great time and have some stories and pics to share with your friends, family and us.

At the finish of your race, please let the volunteers remove your timing chip, drape you with your rad Brineman Triathlon medal and a cool (literally) towel to cool you off! Grab something cold to drink, some finish line food and exchange stories with your pals. There’ll be vendors and games for you and your family to check out too. We sincerely hope you had a good time and that we see you at the next TriUtah event! Thanks for playing with TriUtah!
