Event Sanctioning Body

We are proud to be sanctioned by USA Triathlon (USAT), the governing body of Triathlons and multisport in North America. One of the many roles played by USAT is that of insurance provider for this race. As such USAT requires that every participant be either (1) an annual member and provide proof of membership at packet pick up, or (2) purchase a one day membership for $10. Please visit for more information.

FIRST RUN LEG - 3.6 Miles

The start will be on-road and transition to the trail. This fast, fun and scenic course will have you wishing for more.

ROAD BIKE - 30 Miles

This is the same course used in the past, where you head out the park, only this time head towards Fountain Hills, turn around and head north to the same u-turn before Rio Verde, then back to the park and loop the roads in the park then home to transition. Its rolly, and a great opportunity for the cyclist to put some distance on the runners. Junior racers will do the 13 mile in-park road loop only.


For the OFF-ROAD Duathletes, this course is a treat. McDowell Mountain Regional Park is a mecca for mountain bikers. Over 60% of the visitors to this park are mountain biking the trails within the park.  The course we'll be using will use some of the trails/access roads at the competiton track as well as several miles of the Pemberton trail. The return trip is on the road so you can taunt the road duathletes!

SECOND RUN LEG - 3.75 Miles

After tearing up the bike, the final run leg will be almost all trails. This course will leave an impression, guaranteed! It's shorter than last year, but hilly, so I think you'll be happy.


Directions and Parking

Follow the map directions at the top of the event page. There is plenty of parking at the venue with convenient overflow parking. We recommend planning your day so you get to the venue an hour before the event, and plan on staying to enjoy the music, food and awards/raffle.

Participants are responsible for obtaining their own parking pass at the gate ($6/car).
