Great opportunity to try out Triathlon. For Adults this Super Sprint event will consist of a 250 yard pool swim (1 swimmer starts every 30 sec); just over a 8 mile bike through Dawson county that has some climbing, and a 2.25 mile run in the park.

The adult race is capped at 180 participants...register early, we're expected to sell out fast. If you bring the kids to race too, register for an earlier wave so you're guaranteed to be finished before they start.

The swim will be done in the Veterans Memorial Pool; The bike leg will be done on the roads through Dawson County; and the run will be done on the park grounds using a combination of the paved walking trail and the track.
Estimated Swim Time
Athletes will be placed for the swim start based on their estimated swim time. This will allow the faster swimmers to go first, and keep them from catching the slower swimmers. Please do your best to have an accurate time.
