Transition Areas

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 areas will open for set-up at 5:30 a.m. and will close at 7:15 a.m. (Everyone must be setup by 7:15 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.
