The word is out: The River Rampage has the fastest triathlon mile swim anywhere! Last year’s river flow was a little low, but the year before? 6MPH! For 2014, after the 1 mile downriver swim, we’re offering a Sprint distance bike and run in addition to the Olympic distance bike/run. The River Rampage Triathlon gives you the home town feel and racing charm you will absolutely love! The race is within minutes of Moab and Arches National Park, plentiful lodging and camping, a great local vibe, and who can resist the chance to win a famous Green River Melon! Come and enjoy an amazing bike ride along the Green River at the base of the Book Cliffs Mountains. The amazing Green River State Park Golf Course is the site for both the transition area and finish line, so no two transition area hassle!

The water is not swift but with a current you will get your best 1 mile swim time ever!
Wetsuits are recommended but not required. Expected water temperature is 68-72F. For the most current information on Green River temperature and flow rate, go here: http://waterdata.usgs.gov/usa/nwis/uv?09261000

We are keeping you close to everything green (trees, fields, and the Green River) as you bike out and back along the east side of the river for a total of 25 miles. The last few miles will take you on a short tour of the west side of town and then finish right back where you started, at Green River State Park!

This is a flat run on grass and under trees as you circle the perimeter of Green River State Park Golf Course. On your final mile of the run you will loop through the campground and complete the run along the river on fairway #4 leading back to the boat ramp, transition area, and finish line! This is a fantastic run course for spectators!

In case of inclement weather, TriUtah reserves the right to modify or cancel any portion or all of the event if weather conditions compromise athlete safety.
Packet pickup will be held Friday evening and Saturday morning at Green River State Park (site of the transition area/finish line). Expect the packet pickup process to take no more than 10 minutes.
Per USA Triathlon rules, you MUST have current photo ID at packet pickup. You MUST pick up your packet in person. You may not have someone else pick up your packet for you. NO PHOTO ID, NO RACE, period.
Again: You MAY NOT pick up a packet/timing chip for another person. In order to be covered by USAT insurance you MUST follow these guidelines. You must pick up your own packet, no exceptions.
Results & timing
Results will be posted no later than Saturday evening on TriUtah’s website and at http://www.milliseconds.com. All participants will be timed and will be provided with their swim, bike and run splits, as well as their overall finish time. Instructions for chip use will be provided in your race packet.
Medical personnel from Emery County EMS will be on-site to provide first aid and medical assistance if needed.
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.
