About this event

The Bootlegger event usually means that our triathlon season is winding down, and getting ready to finish up .

So come on out and finish your season strong! We'll have two waves to choose from for the Adults. Adults will bike on the road, but the kids race is completely inside the park!

This is the 4th in a series of 4 events over the summer, finishing with a Championship race at the beginning of October. Both adults & children will race a super sprint distance that's specific for their age.

Adult Bike Route Link:

Kids Bike Route Link:

Great kids course entirely inside the park that is super spectator friendly. Watch & cheer as your kids swim, then fly by for their bike, finishing with their run.

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. Outdoor pool is 25 yards so you will be doing laps up & down each lane accordingly.

Please do your best to have an accurate time. You'll need to have your best guess at how long it will take you to complete your entire swim when asked at Check-in for body marking. Our Team will not know how long it will take you or your child to complete the distance. Keep up with timing as you/they train, and have an approximate time ready so check-in does not get delayed!

If the answer is YES...then put together a relay team. Make sure you each register under the RELAY EVENT and Create (or JOIN) a TEAM NAME so we can group you together.
