There will be an $1800 prize purse (divided) for the
Age Group Olympic "ONLY"!
This race venue is a unique location outside of Guthrie, OK at Guthrie Lake. This lake is a great location for having a Triathlon. Being a no wake lake makes it off limits to jet ski's and other water sports. A great place to train for the general Triathlon population in the area.
The swim is a protected "cove" area without having to be out away from the shoreline. Very spectator friendly!
The bike course for both the Olympic/Sprint offers a great challenge for those who like to race on hills. There is only a small segment of flat road (maybe 300'). All major intersections will be manned/protected by the Guthrie Police Dept and the Deputies of the Logan County Sheriffs Office.
The run course will provide a great challenge as well. Winding through the countryside in & out of two "very small" residential areas (virtually no traffic) there will be one major hill to climb at the two mile mark (twice for the Olympic).
A very spectator firendly venue! Plenty of parking just off from the transition area with the finish line located for easy viewing of the finishing Athletes.

This early in the season we are unable to validate whether this will be a wetsuit legal race. As at most Triathlon's the water temp is taken an hour before the event start and decisions are made at that point. Most of the time during the mid summer months the surface temperature has a lot to do with lake temps and that is what keeps us from stating that this will be a wetsuit legal race.
Please take note - PACKET PICK-UP
Days and times we be will be determined and I will send out an email with that information. It will be the week of the race.

ADDITIONAL TRANSITION AREA INFORMATION
Once you bring your bike into the Transition Area - you will "NOT" be allowed to take your bike back out of the area. If you have mechanical issues - have them fixed before entering the Transition Area. Pump up your tires before coming to the Transition Area. Space will be very limited which will limit your bike rack area only to those things that are "essential" to your race.
TRANSITION AREA & GEAR CHECK
THE TRANSITION AREA OPENS AT 5:A.M. AND WILL CLOSE AT 6:30 A.M. FOR A MANDATORY PRE-RACE MEETING. The Transition Area is for race entrants only! Bikes, helmets, and gear will be checked prior to entry into Transition. You will be given a bike number that matches your bib number. It must be attached to your bike where it is readable before you enter Transition. All athletes will be body-marked before entering Transition. If you ride your bike to the Transition area before the race or back to your vehicle after the race, your helmet must be on and fastened. Failure to do so will result in disqualification. There is also no glass or nudity allowed in Transition. You cannot take your bike out of Transition once it is racked. No one will be allowed in Transition area before or after the race until the Race Director announces that the Transition Area is open. It is our firm belief that every athlete has the right to unobstructed access to the Transition Area throughout his/her race. The Transition is set up in one lane with racks on both sides. Thus, everyone has to travel the exact same distance through Transition. Spots are not assigned, so if you have a special spot in Transition that you want, you should be there early to get it.
Sprint - There will one aid station in Transition and one on the Run. Only water will be served at both. Olympic will hit these aid stations twice on the double loop. There will be one aid station on the bike course at the second turnaround. Only water will be served. Sports drinks, other beverages and food will be available after the race.
