This is our biggest event of the year! This triathlon is great for beginners and a fun unique event for everyone. Olympic distances will be 1500m swim, 24 mile bike, and 10k run. Sprint distances will be 375m swim, 12 mile bike and 5k run. The swim takes place in a 25m indoor pool. The bike is a loop course over mostly flat terrain passing several landmark sites at Edwards AFB such as the aeronautical museum, the flight line, and the USAF Test Pilot School. The run is a flat out and back.
This is the 6th race at Edwards AFB, and we've had great success so far. Olympic distance race will be limited to 22 participants and participants will likely be circle swimming in a lane. Olympic participants are required to provide a volunteer in order to count their laps during the swim. Relay will be for sprint distance only. Participants will receive a t-shirt (those registered before 1 Sept are guaranteed, after that are first come first serve for leftover shirts), a finisher's medal, post-race snacks, insurance, and of course- prizes for the top 3 finishers in the male and female age groups (age group divisions will be based on registration demographics). This race is open to the public, but non DOD ID Card holders must provide additional information in order to gain access to the base. Additionally, all drivers coming to Edwards AFB must have their drivers license, registration and proof of insurance with them. Approximately one to two weeks out from the race, the race organizers will contact non-DOD ID card holders for additional information on any spectators that they would like to bring. Please contact the race director if you have any questions about base access for you or your spectators. **There will be no refunds or holdovers for this event.**
