Description

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).

COVID-19 RULES

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. 

Spectators

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.

PACKET PICKUP AND RACE DAY INFO

What you need to know:

1)  There will be ONE Packet Pickup - Friday, August 28 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on the patio just outside the pool at Starr Pass Resort. Due to the 6:30 a.m. start time, we will not have race-day packet pickup. EVERYONE must pick up their own packet with a valid I.D. This is a USAT sanctioned race, and USAT requires you to pick up your own packet. No one can pick up your packet for you.

Teams will get their timing chip ON RACE MORNING at the Finish Line. Don't forget!

2)  There will be a racer's meeting Friday night, August 28, at 7:00 p.m. IN THE TRANSITION AREA.. You're welcome to grab yourself a cocktail from the bar (happy hour prices) before heading to the meeting. This is when we will explain the course in detail and answer any lingering questions you may have. 

There are no aid stations on the bike course. There will be an aid station (water) as you exit the pool and head into  T1. Then there will be an aid station (water) as you exit T2 and start your run. This is an un-manned aid station. It will be a water cooler that you can fill your own bottle up with. 

If you have not reviewed the Course Maps, please do so now.

3)  Please remember, if you are a 2-person relay team, participant 1 must also be participant 3. You MUST pass your timing chip to a new team member after each relay (there can be no advantage to skipping a chip exchange). 

4)  Starr Pass will provide fresh fruit, granola bars, trail mix and waters at the finish line. We sincerely hope you hang around the finish line and enjoy all the racing and camaraderie. 

5) The awards ceremony (1st - 3rd Place OA Male Teams, Female Teams and Co-Ed Teams, and Male/Female MEGA Sprint) will be right after all teams have finished the course. The awards ceremony will be held on the fairway next to the finish line area. We anticipate the ceremony taking place about 10:00 a.m. 

Please email us if you have questions. 

Please remember to have fun, enjoy the beautiful Starr Pass Resort, and tell your friends all about your race so they join you next year.
