The Utah State Triathlon Championship Series (USTC) is a triathlon racing series designed to encourage healthy competition, promote youth athletes, and determine who Utah’s best triathletes are, while encouraging all athletes, young and old, novice and experienced, to come and enjoy the highest quality races at the best venues in the great State of Utah.

 

Individual Championship Series:

Every time you participate in a TriUtah Triathlon (excluding Woman of Steel), you will earn the opportunity to be crowned age group champion or overall champion at the State Championship. Simply compete in two TriUtah events and you are qualified to race in the Championship.  Please note, there is NO relay championship in 2015.

Why race in the championship? Because in 2015, the championship qualifiers will receive amazing prizes, merchandise, and bragging rights!

NEW in 2015!  Overall male and female champions will receive prize money. See event site for details coming soon.

Division Champions will receive merchandise from our sponsors.

How does the Individual Points Series Work?

To qualify, all you have to do is race in at least 2 TriUtah events, plus the Championship.  We will tally your total points earned and divide them by the number or races you participated in, giving you your total points. Those with the highest point totals win!
