Description

We're spicing things up with a format change for this race. The swim will be a time-trial start, 375 meter serpentine* swim in the Oasis Pool. After that, it's the familiar 13 mile bike and 5K run courses.

The best part? It's only $20 until 23 Feb, then $25 until registration closes 3 Mar 2013. Everyone gets a finisher's medal and post-race snacks (no t-shirts this time around). Awards will be given to the top 3 male and female finishers in the age group categories of <20, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, and 50+.

If you'd like a cheap, low-logistics way to have fun and start 2013 with a beginner-friendly triathlon- you won't find a better opportunity.

Registration is now open at Active.com. http://www.active.com/event_detail.cfm?event_id=2077558

We'll be posting more information in the days and weeks to come at our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/highdeserttriathlon and our new Website, www.highdeserttriathlon.com.

Swim, Bike, Run!

*For those of you who've never done a serpentine swim, it's a low-threat way to get some yardage in for a lot of folks at once. Realisitically, the pack tends to even out the pace in the middle, but faster swimmers will start first and have a pretty clean path. In general, you won't win or lose this race in the pool. Give it a shot!
