Life Time Tri is proud to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Soma Triathlon. This is one of Life Time Tri's marquee events and we plan on making it yours, too! Come out and race in the same location as Ironman AZ. Swim in the same lake, ride most of the same bike course, and finish in the famed Tempe Beach Park. Life Time Tri Soma is the perfect tune-up for Ironman or just a great way to get out and compete in a half-ironman distance event in a phenomenal setting. Race this one and you will get a custom visor, a tech tee and one heck of a good time!
Course Information:

All participants start at Tempe Beach Park, on the south bank, just west of the Mill Avenue Bridge.

  • The swim takes place in a manmade lake that is very calm unless there are high winds (i.e. storm force). The swim course will be a rectangle for all athletes. Water temperatures will be approximately in the mid 70s. (Note: 78 degrees considered wetsuit legal by USAT).
  • The bike portion is a relatively flat, urban, looped course; each loop is approximately 18.5 miles.
  • The run is a 6.5 mile loop around Tempe Town Lake with some great views of ASU and the developing landscape of Tempe. All athletes must complete 3 loops of the bike and 2 loops of the run course.

Historically, the weather on race day has seen temperatures in the high 80s, with lows in the mid 60s. It's a dry heat! The race starts cool and heats up while you do.

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 lots near Rio Salado and Mill Avenue.
