Athletes will receive a Granite Bay Triathlon Finisher Shirt, plus a post race lunch. Included also is a 25th Anniversary Commemorative Granite Bay Triathlon running hat. 

The races start from Granite Beach in Folsom Lake SRA, where the water will be approximately 64 degrees. The Triathlon will start with a .75 mile swim from the beach area. Wetsuits are recommended.

The 11-mile bike course for the Triathlon and Duathlon  is a multi-LAP course located entirely within the park on roads closed to traffic. The bike course is windy and has several sharp small hills and tight turns. It is STRONGLY recommended that you ride the course ahead of time. Caution is advised on several of the turns as they wind through the hills and oak trees that surround Folsom Lake. After the third loop you will return into the transition area.

The 5-mile run course leaves transition and runs on single-track trails along the lake back towards Beals Point. The out and back course has 3 aid stations that will be stocked with water, FLUID electrolyte beverage, and energy gels.

First place Overall Male and Female in the Granite Bay Triathlon will receive Overall Champion Awards. There will be awards five deep in each ten-year age group for the Granite Bay Triathlon.

The Granite Bay Triathlon is also the NorCal/Nevada Overall Tri Club Championship Race. The Champions will be determined by finisher and podium points received by Club Team Members racing in the Triathlon.
