The Sinks&Swim Virtual Triathlon offers a chance for first-timers to get their feet wet and for veterans to shake off the cobwebs and race. With Sprint, Super Sprint and Kids' options, there is something for nearly everyone in the family. You can even team up to race the Sprint or Super Sprint with two or three teammates.
Because of the variety of disciplines, triathlon training will help you get fit while having fun like few other pursuits. And you can train while safely socially distant. But be warned - triathlon can be addicting!
You may complete the required distances separately, or for a bigger challenge, do it as a "real" triathlon with one event after the next.
Compete as an individual or form a team of 2 or 3 people. Make it a family event and help your kids finish the Kids' Tri.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Register on Active.com.
Race your events and time them yourself between 10 and 25 April 2021. Screen-shot your phone's display of your results or take a picture of your results from your GPS. You might also consider using the Active App.
Next, log on to Active.com and enter your TOTAL time for each leg. Don't count the time it takes to transition from one event to the next, only the time to actually swim, bike and run. If you have the option to include transition times, enter them as "0" (zero).
To find out more about how you'll enter your time Active has these instructions: How Participants Upload their Results for Virtual Events .
Come back later to the results page to see how you stack up. We'll also announce winners via email and our FB group J. We may have an awards gathering to meet, swap stories and pass out awards and shirts after the event. Keep an eye on your email, the WY Tri website and the FB group.

Notes that only need to be noted for virtual events!
Lander is at 5,000 feet elevation and it's hilly. Not the pool, of course. The pool is only at elevation, not hilly. The Sprint and Super Sprint bike legs climb gently toward Sinks Canyon for the entire first half and descend that same hill on the return route. If anyone can tell me how much it climbs, I'll include that here. The Sprint run course also climbs gently for the first mile up Spriggs Rd then descends that same hill. If you do this race elsewhere or on a different course, please adjust your times, routes and/or distances to approximate these local conditions. The race coordinators retain decision authority regarding who gets the awards. Please refer to the final line of the "what to bring" list and the recommended race goals below.
Follow our Facebook page and/or join the Wyoming Athletes Group on Facebook. Endurance sports include a lot: swim, bike, run, ski, climb, snowshoe, hike, rollerblade - you name it. If what you do takes endurance and fitness, WAGs welcomes you. Join us. We are better together!
