Swim/Bike Transition Area (T1)- T1 is situated between the two ski-lakes at the Still Water development. Bike Racks will be assigned and numbered. Your Wasatch Running Center packet-pickup BAG will be your T1 GEAR BAG.
T1 GEAR BAG: The Wasatch Running bag is considered to be your gear bag. Please ALL of your swim items in the gear bag before leaving out onto the bike course. We will transfer your bag to the finish-line for you.
SWIM: The Half distance swim is located on the NORTH lake at Still water. is a 1.2 mile swim consisting of a small .2 mile loop, followed by a full 1 mile loop full around the perimiter of the lake and west island. The Olympic consists of a single .9 mile loop, and the sprint consists of a smaller 750 loop. All distances begin the swim by entering the water and looping around the East island. Upon exiting the water, you DO NOT loop the east island. Simply follow the bouys and head straight to the swim finish.
NOTE: We will be conducting a rolling start. This means we will funnel athletes through a chute approximately 10 feet wide. Once you cross the timing mat, you will start the race. Please seed yourself according to your swimming ability. We will have signs posted to seed yourself based on your average swim time per 100 yards. Why the rolling start? It’s safer, reduces congestion, and athletes can start together with friends and family members.
REMINDER: T1 GEAR BAGS – Again, place ALL OF YOUR T1 SWIM GEAR in your Wasatch Running Bag. We will transport the bags to the Finish-Line area for you. Anything not placed in a gear bag will be transferred to the finish-line and placed in a miscellaneous pile. So, be sure to put your stuff in your bag! Easy!
ALL races will begin with a rolling start. Athletes will funnel their way through a chute and across a timing mat before entering the water.
BIKE: All bike courses are on the same out and back route. Athletes will ride west from T1, eventually heading north, then west again on Antelope Drive onto the amazing Antelope Island State Park causeway. The Sprint and Olympic courses are flat and fast. The Half course has hills on Antelope Island, with fun, fast descents. We encourage you to ride the course before the race to familiarize yourself with the climbs, descents and a few tight corners. See Course Map Link for bike course details.
The last portion of the bike course is on a narrow bike trail, where 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 as we really don’t want to fish anyone out of the irrigation canal. Athletes will dismount just before T2.
Sprint Distance Bike is 15 miles — Olympic Distance Bike is 25 miles — Half Distance is 48 miles (yes, 48 miles, not 56)
RUN: The Run courses are also on the same out and back routes on paved bike trails heading north, and parallel to Bluff Street in Syracuse. The routes for all three races are flat and fast. See Course Map Link for bike course details.
NOTE: The HALF run course is two out and back loops.
FINISH: When running to the finish line, athletes will return the same way they exited T2, merging to the right of T2, and crossing the finish line under the TriUtah Big Red Arch! As you cross the finish-line, a sweet custom made Brineman finisher medal, Pyro Maniacs Pizza, souvenir iced rally towels, fruit, drinks, and cheering crowds will be waiting for you!

BIKE NUMBER AND BIB NUMBER
You must attach the bike number provided in your race packet to your bike. The bike numbers have adhesive on the back that will not harm the paint on your bike frame. Failure to securely attach the number will result in a USAT time penalty. You DO NOT need to wear the bib number during the swim or bike. However, it MUST be worn during the run. Safety pins will be provided at packet pickup.
BODY MARKING & TIMING CHIP PICK-UP
To reduce congestion at the swim start, you will be given swim number tattoos to apply to your arms before race start. Read the instructions on the tattoos on how to apply them.
Timing Chips will be picked up Saturday morning at T2 near the finish-line area. You are responsible for picking-up your chip and returning your chip after the race. We will have volunteers to assist in retrieving your chip once you cross the finish-line.
TriUtah believes in giving back to the community. A portion of your entry fee will be donated to the local school and civic organizations in Syracuse and surrounding areas.
In case of inclement weather, the race directors reserve the right to modify or cancel any portion of the triathlon if weather or course conditions compromise athlete safety.
Because the swim courses are all rolling start events, Swim caps will be the same color for each distance. You must wear the appropriate swim cap color to your assigned distance.
Electronic chip timing of the event will be provided by SportStats, (formerly Milliseconds). All participants will be timed and will be provided with 5 splits (swim, T1, Bike, T2, Run). Results will be posted on Saturday evening at sportstats.com or on the TriUtah website.
