The Deserts Edge Tri Festival returns for a 3rd
year, with a new mid-September date promising warmer weather and warmer
water! Expect the same great course,
camping with friends, and a fun tri weekend at the Deserts Edge Tri Festival!
The swim course consists of a one-loop swim course for both
distances in Highline Lake. The sprint
bike course follows a 13.2-mile counter-clockwise loop on smooth paved rural
country roads. The Olympic bike course
follows the same rolling loop, and adds a scenic out & back section with a
water bottle hand-up at approximately 15 miles into the course. The run course will follow gently rolling
trails around Highline Lake with two aid stations per lap. The 5k-sprint course makes on lap of the
course. The 10k Olympic course makes two
laps of the course that follows the Highline Lake Trail. This course is 98 percent soft dirt surface
and 2 percent paved.
