  • 2021 AFSA Triathlon & 5K Run:

    The Air Force Sergeants Association (AFSA) is hosting a virtual and in-person triathlon (Row, Bike, Run) event. Participants will need to pre-position their kayak, bike, and other equipment prior to the in-person race. Athletes MUST wear a lifejacket when rowing and a helmet when biking - no exceptions. All equipment must be staged no later than one hour prior to the event's start. For the virtual event, participants will be responsible for obtaining/using equipment on their own or from their local gym.

    The in-person triathlon will begin at Outdoor Rec near Bear Lake Campground on 26 Jun 2021 at 0900. Athletes will start with the kayak portion rowing 250 meters out and 250 meters back for a total of 500 meters. Next, athletes will transfer to their bikes and ride for 7 miles along a designated path to Iceman Falls Ski Lodge. Once arrived, athletes will transfer to the run and run the designated 5k trail.

    The virtual triathlon event will consist of a 1500 meter row, a 10-mile bike, and a 5k run. Athletes will be responsible for tracking their own times and submitting them to this website. Each athlete will combine their times for the row, bike, and run. The amount of time it takes to transfer between each stage will not be counted towards the total time; however, each stage must be completed in succession and as one continuous effort. Participants must ensure they have adequate equipment and availability. Participants must complete the virtual event between 21 Jun - 27 Jun 2021.

    The 5k race is available for participants that do not desire to compete in a triathlon. Registration fees still apply. Start at Iceman Falls Ski Lodge on 26 Jun 2021 at 1000.
