Open Water Swims Start Saturday, 9am. 

The water at Clocktower Pond is now in the mid-50's, which means it's time to start our open water swims! The first open water swim of the season will be this Saturday, April 27th at 9am. We'll swim for approximately 40min and start our regular Saturday run at 10am from Clocktower Pond. Please bring a towel to dry off and enough nutrition to get through the workout. See you at the pond!

This great race takes place at the popular Eagle Velo Park featuring long and short course options, as well as a youth event. Like the YMCA Spring Sprint Tri, this is a swim Friday, bike/run Saturday format. 

Other than Xterra Les Bois and Xterra McCall, we triathletes have few opportunities to race off road in our home state. Don't miss this opportunity to race in our own backyard! 

Entry fees go up to from $45 to $55 on April 25th.
