CAMP YUBA TRIATHLON
August 22, 2020
The Camp Yuba triathlon is here for 2020 offering the Spring, Olympic and Long (half iron distance) courses!
The Camp Yuba sprint and olympic triathlons are all about long summers, camping, and good ol’ fashion swimming, biking, and running. Yuba State Park is just a 30 minutes south of Utah County and has hosted triathlons for the last decade. The venue is perfect for triathlons. We have arranged a deal with the state park to reserve all campsites for triathletes and their families. So for 24 hours this August, triathletes are taking over the reservoir! We’ll see you at Camp Yuba!

The swim will be a loop course in beautiful Yuba Reservoir. Swimmers will swim counter clockwise keeping all markers to their left. The loop will be a 750 meters in length with sprint distance completing one loop and Olympic distance completing two and Half distance completing 4. Water temperature is expected to be around 70 degrees and wetsuits are suggested but not mandatory.
Swimmers exit up the boat ramp and enter the transition area. No riding bikes in transition area and your helmets must be on and buckled before mounting the bike.
Sprint 12.4 miles, Olympic 25 miles, Half 50 miles
The bike course is located on the roads surrounding Yuba State Park. The roads have very low traffic which makes the bike riding safe and enjoyable. The road surface alternates between smooth asphalt and rough chip seal asphalt. Be mindful of the changing surfaces. The course will be well marked by cones and course signs.
There are several cattle guards along the course, please stay alert. Proper technique is slow down to cross them while making yourself light on the bike.
Out and back course covering 12.4 miles on US 90 and the frontage road along i-15. It is basically flat with several slight inclines and declines spaced throughout. The only turn is a left turn just after the I-15 overpass. This is a highly dangerous turn PLEASE slow down for it going out and coming back.
Loop course covering the 25 miles. It has a few minor climbs and descents. This course begins the same as he sprint but continues past the sprint turnaround to another turnaround further down the frontage road. Once at this turn slow you will continue back on the frontage road to a right turn underneath an overpass on to US 90. Make the turn and it will loop you back to the State Park.
Completing 2 loops of the Olympic distance course. On the first loop back you will pass by the transition/finish area and go on to complete one additional loop. Please be cautious of riders exiting or entering the State Park.
*Please be cautious as you re-enter the State Park. Slow down and yield to any obstacles you may encounter. Remember it is better to be a few seconds slower and safe!
Slow down and dismount at the dismount line. Rack bike and transition to running attire. Exit transition following directional signs. Make sure your race number is on your front before you start running.
Sprint 3.1 miles, Olympic 6.2 miles, Half 13.1
The run will be on both asphalt roads and dirt trails adjacent to the lake. The sprint distance will turn at their halfway mark and the Olympic distance will continue ahead to their turnaround. The Half distance athletes will complete the Olympic loop twice with a slightly extended turn around point.
The course is basically flat with a few rolling hills and aid stations with water, sports drink and other goodies. The run course will be marked with orange cones, spray chalk, and will have mile markers throughout.
Awards and Age Groups
Awards: Please note that depending on the size of the Camp Yuba race the age group breakdown is for awards only. Athletes will most likely be competing against at least one other age group for podium awards.
For official USAT: Submitted times will be broken down into their official age groups for national rankings.
There is always confusion about what age group you are in … here it is: Right now in the eyes of USAT you are the age you will be on December 31 of this year. So if you have a birthday on December 31st and are turning 45, on race day in August, you will be racing in the 45-49 age group (even though on the day of the race you are actually 44).
Swim caps will be provided at packet pickup the morning of the race. The issued cap must be worn during the swim.
Wetsuits are recommended but not required. Water temperature will likely be 70F. Wetsuit strippers WILL NOT be provided.
Electronic chip timing of the event will be provided by The Race Time. All participants will be timed and will be provided with 5 splits (swim, T1, Bike, T2, Run). Results will be posted LIVE during the event so please sign up for texted/email notifications at sign up. Instructions for chip use will be provided at packet pick-up.
Relay team members will wait inside the transition area at the bike rack location of the team where you will transfer your timing chip from one team member to another. Each team will be issued one timing chip, one swim cap, and one bib number.
