Event Description

Date: Sunday, September 22, 2024

The Time Trial Triathlon takes place entirely on the 5 acre TRITERIUM Ranch just outside of Palm Springs in Indio Hills, CA. Heats of 4 athletes start every 30 minutes. While the race is draft legal, drafting is neither encouraged or necessarily advantageous. Every athlete will have to develop their own strategy. The Bike Course is .3 miles in length with 4 turns that will require most competitors to slow down. So drafting will be strategic and questionably advantageous.
