To utilize the great Snake River the race includes two transition areas. Transition 1 (T1): Participants will transition from their swim or initial run to the bike at the South Tourist Park. Transition 2 (T2): All participants will transition from bike to the final run at the events grounds.

Transition One will open for set-up at 6:00 a.m. and will close at 7:00 a.m. (Everyone must be setup by 7:00 a.m.)

Transition Two will open for set-up at 6:00 a.m. and will close at 7:10 a.m. (Everyone must be setup by 7:10 a.m.)

Both transition areas will have an aid stations with water and sports drink. Transition areas are for athletes only; family, friends, coaches, and trainers of participants are not allowed in these areas. Volunteers will be available for stripping of wetsuits and other assistance. Race staff does not transport gear from either transition area.


Wetsuits are recommended but not required for the triathlon; the water temperature ranges between from 63-68 degrees.


The biking portion of the race will start at South Tourist Park. It will take the racers out to the New Sweden area of the Greater Idaho Falls community and return to the Snake River Landing events grounds. Participants will ride along flat city and country roads with and scenic countryside landscapes. The roads are not closed so all riders must ride with caution. NOTE: No participant may wear any form of headphones.  Doing so will automatically disqualify the participant and they will be removed from the race.
