The Swim

Located at Lake Mead which is the largest man made lake in USA. No swimming in a pond here. We promise the cleanest and pH balanced water in the entire Southwest. LMNRA Boulder Beach swim with the transition area next to the water. We expect the water temperature will be 76° F ± 2° (25° C). Wetsuits therefore will be triathletes choice. Yes or no, you decide. There will be plenty of daylight for the start of this race. Start on North boat ramp and finish on the South boat ramp. WETSUITS ARE OK.

The Bike

Entirely within the Lake Mead National Park with low traffic and wide bike lanes.

  • Sprint: One loop going west on Lakeshore Drive to the turnoff of the "Long View Scenic Overlook". Turnaround.
  • Olympic: One loop West on Lakeshore Road turn right onto Northshore Road to the turnout at mile post 2.1. Turnaround. There are no water aid stations on the Olympic or sprint bike course. Please bring at least two water bottles with you.

The Run

Entirely within the Lake Mead National Park with low traffic on the paved River Mountain Trail. Run goes North on the trail towards the Las Vegas Water District.  Water aid stations every 1.5 miles. Run defensively and follow all instructions of safety personnel. Traffic will not be stopped for this event. Please obey the police and safety personnel at intersections and turnarounds. There is no vehicle traffic once you're on trail.

  • Sprint: Run goes up the boat ramp to the asphalt River Mountain Trail. Turn right to the turnaround.
  • Olympic: run continues past sprint turnaround on River Mountain Trail to turnaround.
Directions:
Event is at Lake Mead National Recreation Area (LMNRA). From Las Vegas take I-515 South (also known as: Hwy 93/95). Interstate stops at Railroad Pass Casino and Hwy 93 continues through Boulder City.

Boulder Beach and the transition area are two miles down this road next to the Boulder Beach Ranger station.
