For the sprint triathlon, enjoy a refreshing 500 yard swim in an outdoor 25 yard pool, then head out on a 15K ride on a paved road past gently sloping wheat fields, and finish it off with a 5K run. Athletes will be organized into one of eight swim heats based on their estimated overall finish time. Slower athletes will be seeded into one of the earlier heats, faster athletes in one of the later heats. First swim heat starts at 7:00 am with the following heats starting at 20 minute intervals.
