Cool stuff written about our race
"The flattest and fastest course in the region"
"A perfect course for first timers or a personal best time"

"This small town race puts most big city races to shame."
This will be both a Sprint and Intermediate (Olympic) distance triathlon as well as a Sprint and Intermediate (Olympic) distance Duathlon.  2017 will be our fourth year hosting an Aquabike race.
The Jefferson Lake Recreation area is the staging site for this event.  It has plenty of parking and easy access to the transition area for athletes and spectators.  This venue truly is one of the greatest areas for spectators to watch their athlete.
If the weather forecast is for a high of less than 80 degrees the Olympic Triathlon will start at 7:00 and the Sprint Triathlon and Duathlon will start at 8:00.  If the forecast is for higher than 80 degrees the Olympic Triathlon start will still be at 7:00 but the Sprint Triathlon and Duathlon starts will be at 7:30.

The race meeting for all participants will be held at the transition area at Rigby Lake and will begin at 6:30 pm and is approximately 30 minutes.

Saturday, July 08, Race Day

  6:00 AM - Transition area opens. From this point on if you want to get in the transition area you need to have a race number.  No race number, no getting in the transition area. You will also not be allowed to exit the transition area with gear unless your race number matches that of your bike/gear. 6:00 AM to 7:12 AM - Transition area opens and closes, regardless of whether you are competing in the Sprint or Olympic distance you must have your transition area set up and be OUT of the area by 7:20. It is not safe for our Olympic athletes to have Sprint athletes still setting up their transition area when they are coming through during the transition area, thank you.

  7:10 AM – National Anthem

  7:15 AM - Olympic distance triathletes (including teams) and all Aquabike athletes start meeting

  7:30 AM - Race start for Olympic distance triathletes (including teams) and all Aquabike athletes.

  8:10 AM - Sprint distance triathletes (including teams) and all Duathletes start meeting.

  8:20 AM – Meeting for ALL participants under the age of 18.  This meeting is MANDATORY and failure to attend this meeting will be the forfeiture of the junior participants privilege to participate.

  8:30 AM - Race start for Sprint distance athletes and ALL sprint distance teams.

10:00 AM - Post-race celebration starts and will continue until all athletes finish, yup every single one.

11:00 AM - BBQ and award ceremonies start. You are going to want to stick around for this! We give out the tons of raffle prizes (your race number is your raffle entry, there is no additional cost) and will have medals for overall winners, and for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in each age group in each division, a special medal for the fastest swim, bike, and run split for each distance for male and female as well as our honored Torchbearer Award.



 We will again provide our great BBQ during the post-race activities.

All registered participants can enjoy the BBQ for free.

We also offer the opportunity for friends and family to enjoy the BBQ.

Cost for those 12 and older is $3 and $2 for those under 12.

To assure that we have plenty for everyone (we fed over 500 last year) we ask that you make arrangements for your family and friends as soon as possible.

New Activity              

We will have jump inflatables for our younger guests.  These activities will open to event guests at 9 and we will have volunteers to assist the children from 9 to noon.

These will be set up on the grassy area close to the BBQ and Awards Ceremony area.


Equipment Rental

For those who may want to rent a wetsuit and/or bike, we would encourage you to go to Bill’s Bike and Run.

They are located in Snake River Landing in Idaho Falls.  The phone number is: 522-3341

 We encourage EVERYONE to follow the USAT directive to:

“All participants have the responsibility to review the swim, bike, and run courses before the race.  They should walk, ride, of drive each course and become familiar with all the elements, i.e., turns, road conditions, number and location of aid stations, before starting the race.”.

Newbies:  Someone who is new to the sports of Triathlon, Duathlon, and/or Aquabike 

We love being the host to largest number of new multisport athletes in the region.

We have a special volunteer staff that has the specific assignment to assist our first timers and we have free clinics prior to the race to assist those new to the sport.
