Join SGR for the 2018 Sand Hallow Aquatic Center (SHAC) Triathlon! 

This fun event puts your running, biking, and swimming abilities to the test! If you've ever thought of doing a Triathlon before, this is your time to do it! Starting and ending at the SHAC, this course will take you around the neighbors surrounding the aquatic center. 

Swim Course:

The swim will be in the SHAC indoor pool. The swim will take place in heats of approximately 20 racers. There will be two people in each full sized lane. The Sprint Distance will start first at 9:00 am, followed by the beginner distance at noon, and the kid's distance at 1:00 pm. The pool temperature will be between 81 - 84 degrees.

Bike Course:

The bike course is an out and back loop course. From the pool, you will turn right on Lava Flow Drive, left on 2000 North, and turn around at N Red Mountain Rd. The course is a 5-mile loop. One lap for beginners; two laps for the sprint. The course is fairly flat with a couple hills. There will be officers holding up traffic at the main intersections, but it is an open road race so be aware of traffic. Helmets are required for participants. If you don't have a helmet you won't be allowed to race.

Run Course:

 

The running course is an out and back 1 and 1/2 mile loop. It will follow the bike path North of the pool and East of Lava Flow Drive. One lap for the beginner distance; two laps for the sprint distance. There will be aid stations at the transition area and the run turn-arounds.

 

 

This year there will be finisher medals in the adult beginner distance rather than age group awards.  All kids races will have finisher medals as well. The adult sprint and relay races will have age group awards in each 5 year age division. Everyone gets a finisher medal!

Beginner & Sprint events are capped at 400 participants!

There will be a team relay option for the sprint division only! Team relay can consist of up to 3 athletes, each completing one of the disciplines. Open Men, Open Women, and Mixed divisions available for the relay. Top 3 teams in each of these divisions will receive awards.
