YEE HAW! Welcome to the 2016 Ghost Town Spring Triathlon, and Wild West 5k – The PERFECT way to kick-off your triathlon season at the Amazing RUSH Funplex in Syracuse, Utah.  Be sure to plan on staying after the event and spend some time at the largest indoor recreation facility in Utah!

The sprint distance triathlon consists of a 300 yard swim, 15 mile bike, and 3 mile run.

There is NO Duathlon in 2016. This year’s race will be held in conjunction with the Woman of Steel Sprint Triathlon on the same day!

Join us after the race for overall and age-group awards, random prizes from our sponsors, pizza and post race food by the RUSH FunPlex, and a beautiful day of racing!

Every participant receives a sweet Ghost Town race T-shirt, Cowboy hat, chip timing, sweet finisher medal, and post race food.

PLUS, the Rush Funplex will be giving every participant a free admission and 50% off admission to family and friends attending the event.  So, plan to stay and play after the race!

This event is a 2016 TriUtah qualifying race for the Utah State Triathlon Championship in Ogden Utah this September.


The swim is 300 yards at the Rush Complex Pool with athletes starting single file, jumping feet first, one at a time, and swimming 50 yards, then crossing lanes.

The 12.5 mile Bike Course will consist of cycling south out of the RUSH Complex pool, on a scenic out and back course along country roads in Syracuse.

The 5k Run Course will consist of running a 5k route on the roads and bike trails in Syracuse City.
