Welcome to the 4th Annual Annual TriZona Super Sprint and MEGA Sprint Triathlon Duathlon
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the 2020 event is now a duathlon instead of a triathlon
What Is A "Super Sprint Triathlon Duathlon" ?
A Super Sprint requires every member of a relay team to complete all three legs (run, swim, run) of a triathlon duathlon. The first team member starts the race, does all three legs and then hands off the timing chip to the next team member to complete the same course, who then hands off the timing chip to the final (third) team member to finish the triathlon. It is a "super sprint distance," meaning a much shorter course than a traditional sprint triathlon duathlon , but it does have its challenges.
The run portions are 1 HILLY mile.
The swim is 200 yards in the Lazy River against the current. See The Course description below for further details.
Individual MEGA Sprint Triathlon Duathlon
For 2020, when one person signs up to do the entire course they will - Run-Swim-Run-Swim-Run. Are you MEGA tough? Are you up for the MEGA challenge?
The 2020 Course
The race starts with the first team members running one mile on the cart path, then sliding down the JW Marriott’s waterslide into the lazy river to swim against the current for 200 yards, and then finishes with another one mile run on the cart path. The race will start in a time trial fashion, with one runner going off every 10 seconds.
The run is a challenging 1 mile course around the Starr Pass golf course. It has a hill or two. :)
BYOB - Bring Your Own Bottle
There will be no water or food or aid stations on the course. If you need water or nutrition on the run course, you must bring your own bottle pre-filled. There will be food and drink at the finish line (see below).
Due to the risk of spreading COVID-19, all participants are REQUIRED to wear a mask while setting up their transition area. Once you are in line to race, you do not need to wear a mask, nor do you need to wear one while racing.
IMMEDIATELY after you are done, if you plan to hang around and watch your team finish you MUST wear a mask. If you're not racing, you're covered up. No exceptions.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Starr Pass Resort has asked us to limit the event attendance to. RACERS ONLY. There can be no spectators milling about at or near the start/finish lines or anywhere along the course. This must be strictly adhered to.
