We proudly announce the eighth annual Life Time Tri Tempe. We'd like to invite you to compete in either the sprint, international, paratriathlete or relay waves (both sprint and international relay options available). Life Time Tri Tempe also offers a first-timer wave for those new to the sport of triathlon. The first-timer wave is open to anyone (even experienced athletes) looking for a low-stress, less competitive experience.
All participants start at Tempe Beach Park, on the south bank, just west of the Mill Avenue Bridge.
The swim takes place in a man-made lake that is very calm unless there are high winds (i.e. storm force). The swim course will be a rectangle for both sprint and international athletes. Water temperatures will be approximately 80 degrees. We will be monitoring and posting the temperature of the lake right up to the event (Note: 78 degrees is considered wetsuit legal by USAT).
The bike portion is a relatively flat, urban, looped course; each loop is approximately 12.3 miles.
The run is a 3.1-mile loop around Tempe Town Lake with some great views of ASU and the developing landscape of Tempe. International distance athletes must complete two loops of both the bike and run course.
Historically, the weather race day has seen high temperatures in the low 90s, with lows in the mid 60s. Its a dry heat!
Limited parking is available for athletes in the U.S. Airways parking garage on Saturday. Parking on Sunday in the U.S. Airways building is FREE! Once the garage is full you will need to park on city streets or at other parking logs near Rio Salado and Mill Avenue.
