About This Activity

The Spare Time Team Challenge Triathlon is California's ONLY All Relay Team Triathlon and offers a seriously challenging and fun race course with CLIF Bar products, samples, raffle prizes and more, plus hot post race food, and free athlete massage.

Team members can be active or retired members of the Police or Fire Force and must show ID at packet pick up on race morning.

The race starts from the Granite Beach in Folsom Lake with a .75 mile swim from the beach area. The swim course will be a triangular course marked by the large white triangular buoys. Water temperature should be approximately 56 degrees. Wetsuits are recommended. The swim will exit the lake and head up the beach and on a grassy path to the transition area located in the parking area.

The 13-mile bike course is a TWO-LAP course located entirely within the park on roads closed to traffic. The bike course is windy and has several sharp small hills and tight turns. It is STRONGLY recommended that you ride the course ahead of time. Caution is advised on several of the turns as they wind through the hills and oak trees that surround Folsom Lake. After the second loop you will return into the transition area. Course maps will be available on race morning at Registration. The Bike course will Not have an aid station. Water and Electrolyte Beverage, along with Energy gels will be available in the transition area.

The 5-mile run course leaves transition and runs on single-track trails along the lake back towards Beals Point. The out and back course has 3 aid stations that will be stocked with water, electolyte beverage, and energy gels. The finish is back at the start area at the Granite Beach. ALL athletes must wear their race number on the front of their body during the run and have it when crossing the finish line.

Included for each competitor is a Team Challenge Triathlon custom tech-tee race shirt, a swim cap, athlete goody bag with CLIF Bar and Emerald Nuts product samples.

There will be awards five deep in each division for the Team Challenge Triathlon for each of the ten divisions. There will also be an individual division for triathletes not on a team that wish to race.
