_ 2018 Bear Lake Brawl Triathlon - Olympic/Sprint:
In 2006 the Bear Lake Brawl Triathlon was established. It is the original and only triathlon in Bear Lake currently. Organized and race directed by On Hill Events an experienced Race Director with over 140 races of experience. This race has 12 years of experience in its history without cancellation or course leg cancellation. We term the Half 70 1/3 and Full 140 2/3 to describe the full and half courses. In 2016 we were able to make the full and half the standard distances of Half 1.2 Mile Swim, 56 Mile Bike, 13.1 Run and Full 2.4 Mile Swim, 112 Mile Bike, and 26.2 Mile Run.
In 2017 we were excited to move our race to Bear Lake Hot Springs near St. Charles Idaho. Though it is primarily in Idaho 3 of the 4 courses go into Utah. In 2018 we elected to have all 4 distances on one day making for a larger event. We have worked out a great layout to help reduce overlapping of the 4 courses. Generally speaking the Sprint will be done prior to the Bike on the Half and Full will be around the lake.
The race has four distances:
Sprint - Swim 750 Meters, Bike 12.4 Miles, Run 3.1 Miles
Olympic - Swim 1500 Meters, Bike 24.8 Miles, Run 6.2 Miles
Half 70 1/3 - Swim 1.2 Miles, Bike 56 Miles, Run 13.1 Miles
Full 140 2/3 - Swim 2.4 Miles, Bike 112 Miles, Run 26.2 Miles
Loads of volunteers and support along the course as well as highly full aid stations. The course views are breathtaking and the legs are fairly flat and fast.
