_ The 2024 Payson Orchards Triathlon:

We think it's the prettiest sprint run and bike course in Utah! What brings people back year after year are the beautiful orchards we bike through on a relatively flat course; the friendly spectator area, including a kids playground, bounce house, and vendors; an awesome finisher medal; an accurate timing chip system; free photos, an easy and fun swim, not to mention the small-town race feel! The perfect triathlon for first-time triathletes or those seasoned athletes looking for a fun, fast, and beautiful sprint triathlon! Our race is a reverse-order triathlon (run, bike, and then we end with the swim). For the first time ever in 2024 we will also offer a 12 and under kids super-sprint triathlon! We will also be offering a 5K walk/run.

Course Information:

REVERSE TRIATHLON DISTANCES
5k run (3.1 miles), 18k bike (11 miles), 300 yard swim

RUN
Heading east toward Peteetneet Road (600 E), runners will turn south to run up the canyon until they meet the police turnaround at about 1.5 miles. On their way back, runners will turn left one block earlier than the "out" road onto 800 south, and then one last right onto Main Street to come into T1. The 5K ONLY runners will use the same 5K course. RUN ROUTE ON STRAVA.

T1
Runners will enter Transition 1 (T1) from the Main Street side, grab their bikes and helmets and exit out the other side of the transition area. 
 
BIKE*
Racers will leave the transition area on foot, mount their bicycles on the road, and will continue along an 11-mile route. Cycling through blooming cherry orchards and beautiful farms is what makes this relatively flat ride worth a try. Coming up over the freeway overpass and back into downtown Payson, racers will have unobstructed views of the Payson LDS temple, as well as miles and miles of south Utah County. BIKE ROUTE ON STRAVA.

T2
Dismounting your bike on Main Street, participants will walk their bikes into the transition area to prepare for the last leg of the race, the swim!

Swim
For the first time in Payson Orchards Triathlon history, we will have the swim be the last of the three disciplines. After exiting T2, racers will make their way barefooted to the south east corner of the pool, coming in the side gate and enter the pool while watching out for other swimmers. Swimmers will “snake” up and back in each lane, staying to the RIGHT side of the lane, and then under the lane line (only on the south side of the pool) to repeat until they exit the pool after swimming in all six lanes, equaling 300 yards. Racer's times will stop when they exit the pool and walk over the timing mat.
