Splash N Sprint Triathlon

May 8 @ 7:30 am - 11:00 am

Course Details and Map

This course involves a sprint triathlon distance as well as a novice distance. Our triathlon is in TRUE triathlon order: swim, bike, run. Click here for a PDF of all race details.

TRANSITION AREA:

The transition area will open at 5:30am. All racers, both Sprint & Novice, will be in the same transition area. It is a first come, first serve transition area. We plan on 8-10 bikes per bike rack, so don’t plan on having much space! With over 550 racers, those bike racks will be full. For better balance and best spacing, place your bike in the opposite direction as the bike next to yours.

We do also bring in a kids bike rack so that kids can have better access to their bikes when ready to head out on the bike route. This rack will be located in the south-east corner of the transition area.

There is an archway labeled, “TRANSITION IN” and one labeled, “TRANSITION OUT”. Anytime you are going INTO the transition area from an event, you’ll go in the IN archway, anytime you go out to the next event, you’ll head out the OUT archway. Please pay attention and be aware that if you are going the wrong direction, you will likely cause problems with your time!

SWIM

Sprint Distance

The swim of the sprint distance will be held in the lap pool (competition pool). The race will start at 7:30am. We ask you to head down to the pool area at 7:15am. Don’t forget any of your swim stuff (goggles, cap, anything else you need!). Novice racers, you’ll need to head to the pool area; however, you will wait in the stands until all sprint racers have started. Once you are out of the transition area, you cannot go back in! We will be turning on our transition timing points so we are ready for the first racer to come out. If you re-enter the transition area, it could cause problems with your race time!

When you are lining up at the pool, you can line up by your bib number; smallest in the front and larger as you get to back. You were assigned your bib number according to the seed time you entered when you registered. Don’t worry; you aren’t required to enter the water in that order. Perhaps you trained better than you planned, or sadly – didn’t get enough training in; causing your time to be different than what you entered at registration. Once you are lining up, you can move around according to the signs we have on the walls and according to other racers near you. Talk to others around you to see what times they’re planning on and move to where you feel comfortable.

You’re time won’t start until you actually get in the water and will end when you go into the transition area, so start where you’re comfortable! Do all the racers a favor and start where you will fit well with your ability!

For the sprint distance, you will swim 350 yards – 14 lengths in the pool. You will swim one length, then under a lane line and back, then under a lane line again and so on. The last lane will be a double wide lane, when you get the east-side, you can hop out of the pool anywhere or using the stairs. From that point, head out the doors and up to the transition area where you placed your bike and equipment.

Novice Distance

The swim of the novice distance will be held in the lap pool (competition pool). The novice racers will start AFTER all the sprint racers have started. We ask you to head down to the pool area at 7:45am. Don’t forget any of your swim stuff (goggles, cap, anything else you need!). You’ll need to head to the pool area; however, you will wait in the stands until all the sprint racers have begun. The novice race will start about 8:45am. Remember, once you are out of the transition area, you cannot go back in! We will be turning on our transition timing points so we are ready for the first racer to come out. If you re-enter the transition area, it could cause problems with your race time!

When it’s your turn to line up at the pool, you can line up by your bib number; smallest in the front and larger as you get to back. You were assigned your bib number according to the seed time you entered when you registered. Don’t worry, you aren’t required to enter the water in that order.

For the novice distance, you will swim 150 yards – 6 lengths in the pool. You will swim one length, then under a lane line and back, then under a lane line again and so on. The last lane will have an orange cone in front of it, when you get to it, on the east-side, you can hop out of the pool anywhere or using the stairs. From that point, head out the doors and up to the transition area where you placed your bike and equipment.

BIKE

Sprint Distance

One of the first things you have to remember for the next portion of your race is that you need to remember your helmet! We won’t let you out on the course without one. You’ll need to stay off your bike until you are out of the transition area. There will be a mount line just outside the transition area where you will be able to get onto your bike (at any point after the line) and head out onto the course. You’ll make a right hand turn onto 400 North right when you get out of the parking lot.

This year the sprint distance for the bike is an out and back course. View the PDF (link below) to see the bike map, and instructions.

As you continue on the course, please remember that we do not close ANY part of the course. It is open to traffic and we EXPECT all racers to follow all traffic laws. This would include stopping at stop lights, stopping for trains, and SLOWING down and stopping if necessary for stop signs. We have volunteers and police officers on the course for your safety; but first and foremost, you as a racer need to be familiar with the course. We offer maps for download and hope you take the time to study them and be familiar with where you are going.

Novice Distance

One of the first things you have to remember for the next portion of your race is that you need to remember your helmet! We won’t let you out on the course without one. You’ll need to stay off your bike (walk it) until you are out of the transition area. There will be a mount line just outside the transition area where you will be able to get onto your bike (at any point after the line) and head out onto the course. You’ll make a right hand turn onto 400 North right when you get out of the parking lot. As a novice racer, you’ll just need to remember it’s ALL RIGHT TURNS!

As you continue on the course, please remember that we do not close ANY part of the course. It is open to traffic and we EXPECT all racers to follow all traffic laws.

We offer maps for download and hope you take the time to study them and be familiar with where you are going.

The last important part to the novice course is that you will make a right hand turn into the front of Bountiful Junior High. You’ll bike across the front drive of the junior high and turn into the “TRANSITION IN” archway. Don’t miss this! We can’t adjust times or anything due to wrong turns taken!

RUN:

Sprint Distance

The run course of this race is a pretty easy one! All right turns! Remember when you head out of the transition area, (see map), you’ll head down a sectioned off area next to the transition area. You’ll then be crossing a large open area towards the back road of our facility. You’ll head all the way through our parking lot (north side) and out to 200 West. Again, the course is not closed at any point. Please follow all traffic laws for your safety! There will be an aid station half way through the course on Porter Lane & Main Street where volunteers will have water, an electrolyte drink and first aid if needed.
