That Sounds Rad, Tell Me More!

2019 marks the 19th year of the Echo Triathlon!

This event has become one of Utah’s largest events and traditionally sells out early. Warm July temperatures, a scenic ride in Utah’s unique Echo Canyon, and a run on the Historic Rail Trail makes for the perfect event for both seasoned athletes and beginners. After reaching our cap early last year, we have decided to increase this year’s race to 600 athletes. Get in before it’s filled friends!

The 2019 Olympic Distance race at Echo Triathlon as been selected as the USAT State Championship for Age Group athletes and High School Divisions! Please note that everyone can still compete in this race. You do not need to be an elite athlete.

So what does the State Championship mean?

The 2019 State Championship races occurring prior to August 1, 2019, qualify the top 25 percent or top five (whichever is greater) competitors per their respective age groups for the 2019 Olympic-Distance Age Group National Championships in Cleveland, Ohio, on August 10. All athletes must be at least 17 years old by Dec. 31, 2019, to qualify for Olympic Distance National Championships.

To learn more about the High School Division, please click here! 

TriUtah’s Echo Triathlon was chosen by USA Triathlon to be the North Central Sprint Regional Championship race! What does this mean other than a great race? Well, first off you do NOT need to be competitive to do this event, so please do not feel intimidated by a Championship event. This is actually a great time to come out and be a part of something larger and learn and see some of the best regional athletes competing for Nationals!

What does this mean if you’re trying to qualify for Nationals? This is the race to do to increase your chances of qualifying for the 2020 USAT Nationals!

Regional Championships occurring after August 2 for the discipline of Sprint-distance triathlon offer athletes an opportunity to qualify athletes for the 2020 USA Triathlon National Triathlon edition. The date and location of the 2020 Toyota USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships are to be determined. At Echo the top 35% or top five finishers per age group (whichever is greater) earn the opportunity to go to Nationals — in comparison to a standard USA Triathlon Sanctioned Event, in which only the top 15% in each age group qualify.

Course Deets!


Sprint 750m | Olympic 1500m

Just keep swimming…
- Dory

The expected water temp in early July, is between 64-69º

At the swim start, please look for the signs for average swim paces per 100 yards and seed yourself according to your swimming ability. Why the self seeding? If everyone seeds themselves correctly, it’s safer, reduces congestion, and athletes can start together with friends and family members regardless of age/gender. From here we will be conducting a time trial start. What does this mean? Every 3-5 seconds athletes will run down the boat dock and dive/cannonball or backflip in the water to start their Echo swim. The timeline will be at the edge of the dock, once you cross the timeline, your race time starts. 

The Olympic will start at 7am and the Sprint at 8am.  Large orange swim buoys will be placed in a 750 meter rectangle pattern. Athletes will swim clockwise (buoys on your right). The Sprint athletes will swim once around the orange buoys and Olympic athletes will swim twice around the orange buoys. Be sure you wear the provided swim cap corresponding to your event distance. These caps are issued to you at packet pickup and must be worn during the swim.

SAVE YOUR FEET: The transition area is located on a gravel lot and won’t feel great on your bare feet. We highly recommend dropping your sandals or shoes near the exit of the swim to make that jaunt to your bike less painful. We know by experience that it will take you less time to put on sandals than to pick rocks out of your feet before heading out on the bike.

Lifeguards on kayaks, SUP’s and boats will be monitoring the water portion of the event.

If you find yourself in need of support  while in the water, simply wave your hand/ arms or  swim to the nearest support team member. You may hold on to any support vessel without penalty as long as there is no forward movement. If, for any reason, you need to cut your swim short, let the water support team know and give them your race number. They will bring you to back to land.


Sprint 20k | Olympic 40k

As long as I breathe, I attack…
- Bernard Henault

Athletes will leave Echo Resort and cross onto Hwy 32 going north (left).  Continue north on Hwy 32. Go under the Interstate 80 overpass and turn right, continuing up Hwy 189 (Echo Canyon Road) to the turnarounds for each event. Return back to Echo reservoir (out-and-back course).

CAUTION: Sprint athletes, when hitting your turnaround, keep it tight and keep it right. Please be sure to merge to Olympic cyclists coming from beyond your turnaround. Olympic athletes, please use caution when approaching the Sprint turnaround. Don’t assume they see you flying toward them. Be safe and have each others back.

NOTE: There are NO aid stations on the bike course. Please have at least 2 bottles of water on your bike before heading out


Sprint 3.1 miles | Olympic 6.2 miles

Life is short... running makes it seem longer…
- Baron Hansen

From the transition area participants will run north (left) on the Park City Rail Trail (hard packed dirt trail). The trail parallels Hwy 32 and is completely separated from vehicle traffic. Sprint athletes will run out 1.55 miles and head on back. The Olympic athletes will do 2 loops of this course. This will give 6 aid stations on the course.

We will do out best to put aid stations at every mile, but with the rail trail being narrow we need to find a wide enough spot for tables/volunteers. Each aid station will have water, electrolyte replacement, high fives and music! Bring it babies!

Your Finish!

Congratulations friends, you finished the TriUtah Echo Tri!  We hope you had a great time and have some stories and pics to share with your friends, family and us!

At the finish of your race, please let the volunteers remove your timing chip, drape you with your rad Echo Triathlon medal and a cool (literally) towel to cool you off! Grab something cold to drink, some finish line food and exchange stories with your pals! There’ll be vendors and games for you and your family to check out too. We sincerely hope you had a good time and that we see you at the next TriUtah event! Thanks for playing with TriUtah!
