Description

Welcome to the 3rd Annual TriZona Super Sprint and MEGA Sprint Triathlon

 

What Is A "Super Sprint Triathlon" ?

A Super Sprint requires every member of a relay team to complete all three legs (swim, bike, run) of a triathlon.  The first team member starts the race, does all three legs and then hands off the timing chip to the next team member to complete the same course, who then hands off the timing chip to the final (third) team member to finish the triathlon. It is a "super sprint distance," meaning a much shorter course than a traditional sprint triathlon, but it does have its challenges.  See The Course description below for further details.  

Individual MEGA Sprint Triathlon

This is when one person signs up to do the entire course - 3 TIMES in a row. Are you MEGA tough? Are you up for the MEGA challenge? 

High School Division

High school competitors will complete the course as follows: 1 lap in the Lazy River (equal to 200 yard swim), 2 laps on the bike course (7 miles), and 1 lap (1 mile) on the run. 

The Course

The race starts with the first team members sliding down the JW Marriott’s lazy river slide in a time trial fashion directly into a 3-5 minute swim AGAINST the current of the lazy river.

You will then head out on a challenging 3.50 mile bike ride.  It's a fast start going downhill, but after the turn around, you have to climb back up to the transition area.

The run is a challenging 1 mile course around the Starr Pass golf course.  It too has a hill -- or two. :)

PACKET PICKUP AND RACE DAY INFO

What you need to know:

1)  There will be TWO Packet Pickups - First one is on Friday, September 7, at Tucson Endurance Performance Center at Grant and Swan (4811 E. Grant Rd., Ste 147) from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The second one will be on Saturday, September 8, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on the patio just outside the pool at Starr Pass Resort. IF YOU DID NOT PICK UP YOUR PACKET AT TEPC ON FRIDAY, THEN YOU MUST PICK UP YOUR PACKET ON SATURDAY. NO EXCEPTIONS. Due to the 6:00 a.m. start time, we will not have race-day packet pickup. EVERYONE must pick up their own packet with a valid I.D. This is a USAT sanctioned race, and USAT requires you to pick up your own packet. No one can pick up your packet for you.

The last team member to pick up the their packet will receive the team's timing chip. 

2)  There will be a racer's meeting Saturday night, September 8, at 7:00 p.m. at T1 (just south of the pool patio). You're welcome to grab yourself a cocktail from the bar (happy hour prices) before heading to the meeting. This is when we will explain the course in detail and answer any lingering questions you may have. 

There are no aid stations on the bike course. There will be an aid station (water) as you exit the pool and head into  T1. Then there will be an aid station (water) as you exit T2 and start your run. 

If you have not reviewed the Course Maps, please do so now.

3)  Please remember, if you are a 2-person relay team, participant 1 must also be participant 3. YouMUST pass your timing chip to a new team member after each relay (there can be no advantage to skipping a chip exchange). 

4)  Starr Pass will provide fresh fruit, granola bars, trail mix and waters at the finish line. We sincerely hope you hang around the finish line and enjoy all the racing and camaraderie. 

There will be security checking bib numbers against bike numbers, so please have your bib number with you to get your bike out of transition.

5) The awards ceremony (1st - 3rd Place OA Male Teams, Female Teams and Co-Ed Teams) will be right after all teams have finished the course. The awards ceremony will be held on the pool patio (same place as packet pickup).

Please email us if you have questions. 

Please remember to have fun, enjoy the beautiful Starr Pass Resort, and tell your friends all about your race so they join you next year.
