Event details and schedule
The swim is an open water out and back in Sulphur Creek Reservoir. Temperatures average 60-63 degrees. Wetsuits are recommended but not required.
You will be treated to grand vistas of the Uinta mountains as you bike along the Scenic Byway on Highway 150. An ever so slight incline on the out will give you a fast return to transition to the run. Stern Warning to Follow! This is an open course and you must follow all traffic laws and use common sense when turning around. No headphones allowed on bike course.
Time to finish strong... or maybe just finish, with an out and back run along quiet country roads with the beauty of the Uinta's. 2k of the run is asphalt with the remainder on maintained dirt roads.
