Sprint Triathlon

SPRINT SWIM COURSE - .5 MILES (Cut-off time 9:00 am)

Expected water temperature for the race is between 58 & 65 degrees.  Wetsuits are highly encouraged. We do abide by the USAT rules for wetsuit usage, which allows wetsuits to be used in water temperatures up to and including 78 degrees Farenheit. Between 78 and 84 degrees, wetsuits may be used, but participants will not be eligible for age group awards. Elites and Pros may only wear wetsuits in water temperatures up to and including 68 degrees. TriSports.com rents wetsuits on a reservation basis. If you would like to reserve one, you can do so online or call TriSports.com toll-free at 1-888-293-3934.

The swim will be a 1 Lap square course. Athletes will begin the race in the water or on the shore depending on the water level on race day.  Wave information including swim start times can be found on our schedule. Once the swim begins, swimmers will proceed to the left to the first large buoy. The course will be run in a clockwise direction.   For those athletes that would like help in removing their wetsuits, volunteers will be available for support.  A designated area will be marked for this purpose.

SPRINT RUN COURSE – 3.3 MILES (Cut-off time 3:30 pm)

The Sprint run course takes athletes along a nicely groomed, scenic trail around Fool Hollow Lake and then into the campgrounds for a tour and lots of encouragement from the campers.  From there you’ll follow the roads back to the start/finish area, and breathe a sigh of relief that you’ll take that right turn to the finish line instead of the left to head out on a second lap like the DeuceMan participants!

Sprint Run Course

The Deuces Wild Triathlon Festival includes Long Course, Olympic, Sprint and XTERRA triathlon events, as well as a YOUTH TRIATHLON, so it truly is a family event! The White Mountains offer a cool reprieve from the hotter temperatures experienced in other parts of Arizona, and showcase some breathtaking scenery throughout the courses. Need more reasons to come race with us? A portion of proceeds from the events go to charity, and we are also a green event! All races will be sanctioned by USAT and are made possible with the cooperation of Arizona State Parks, the City of Show Low, the US Forest Service and ADOT.
