State Championship Info

Welcome to the Utah State Triathlon Championship Series!
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.   We’ve simplified the qualification process by eliminating the points system.  Simply race in two (2) TriUtah events throughout the year and you are qualified to participate in the Championship Race held in Huntsville, 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.

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

Overall male and female champions will receive prize money. See event site for details.

Division Champions will receive merchandise from our sponsors.

Club Championships Series:

We are also offering a club championship. This is simply a participatory championship. Those clubs with the most participants throughout the year will receive the Club Championship Trophy.  The 2014 Club champions were Desert Sharks / Bike for Kids team.
