_ The 2023 Oktoberfest Sprint Triathlon - Longmont:
The annual Oktoberfest Triathlon on Sunday September 24th, 2023, is the party of the season and also a 2023 Mountain Collegiate Conference Race! As the leaves change color this race will officially end the Colorado Triathlon Season! It's been a long fun season but before the snow begins to fall let's get one more triathlon celebration in.
The Oktoberfest Triathlon is about friends and teammates, smiling and cheering. Men's or woman's cut technical t-shirts are back. Great goodie bags, one of our biggest expos of the year, a ton of raffles, and a closed race course are just some of the highlights. This race is capped at 600 athletes to maintain a fun, yet lively, and laid back feel. Due to the low cap we've sold out the past 10 years so be be sure to take advantage of early registration. Every year we pick a different Lander (province) in Germany as a theme for the event t-shirts! The 2021 theme was Hessen, 2022 was Saar-Land, and 2023 will be Bavaria!
OKTOBERFEST TRIATHLON SWIM COURSE (750 Meters)
The triathlon course for the Oktoberfest Sprint Triathlon will take place at Union reservoir in Longmont, Colorado, offering breathtaking views of the snow-capped mountains only miles away. The swim course is rectangular shaped, with the swimmers traveling in a counter clockwise direction. Participants exit the water at the northern end of the course next to the dock/boat ramp and run about 100 yards to the transition area along a carpeted path. Yes you read that correctly the path from the waters edge to the T/A will be CARPETED!!! The water temperature at Union Reservoir normally ranges between 70-75 this time of year.
OKTOBERFEST TRIATHLON BIKE COURSE (12.9 Miles)
The Single-Loop course for the Oktoberfest Triathlon is now construction free and smooth as ever. This course has everything a sprint triathlon could ask for; flat sections that are wide-open for passing and fully closed to traffic on CR1, rolling hills on CR7 & CR5.5, wide-shoulders, and smooth asphalt. Please be sure to review the map.
OKTOBERFEST TRIATHLON RUN COURSE (3.1 Miles):
The 5K run is an out & back course along the dirt road adjacent to Union reservoir, with only one short hill to climb just before mile 1. On the way back dont forget to look just beyond the water and you'll see a breathtaking view of Longs peak and many other snow capped mountains. There will be an aid station at just past the 1st mile that you'll hit twice on the out & back course.
