The swim is 1 mile downriver, with a swim start at our secret location with it ending at the Green River State Park boat ramp. Shuttles will provide rides for you to the swim start. You cannot park at the swim start. However, if you have driver who can drop you off, we encourage you to do so.

The State Park is also the location for the transition area and the finish line! The bike course is a combination out-and-back/loop ride beneath the Book Cliffs and alongside the Green River.

The run will take you back to your high school cross-country days as you complete the 3 mile run course (Olympic: 2 loops) on the Green River State Park golf course grass and paved trails where you will enjoy shaded trees, water features, and a soft running surface! It is a near perfect course for spectators to see you complete the event.

Transition Area

There will be a single transition area. You will have an assigned rack location and bikes will be racked according to bib number with 6 bikes per rack (3 on each side). Your front bike tire should face out from the side of the rack where your nametag is located. If possible, rack your bike by placing the nose of your seat on the bike rack. There is no bike riding inside the transition area before or during the event. Doing so will result in a time penalty enforced by the USA Triathlon officials.

What Athletes Need to Know About Insurance Coverage: When an athlete purchases an annual USAT license or one-day permit, a portion of those fees goes to cover the cost to provide them with excess medical insurance. This coverage only extends to their participation in a USA Triathlon sanctioned event.
