The crowning and longest multisport event on the Wasatch Front … 
Utah County, Provo City, and Utah State Park are pleased to present the annual UTAH HALF long course triathlon … a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, and 13.1 mile run triathlon. If you are a seasoned triathlete, put this into your schedule and experience an amazing event. Or if you are looking to jump up from sprint and olympic distances, this is your graduation present. The long course triathlon requires more training and intensity but as many will attest, the satisfaction of completing one is also increased. Are you ready to go long … the long course?  

To pick up your packet you must have your PHOTO ID and USAT card. Registered Athletes will receive Packet Pickup dates and details in an email approximately a week before the race. Your friend cannot pick up your packet for you – there are no exceptions to this rule.
5:00 AM – Body Marking/Timing Chip distribution, Transition Area Opens & Packet Pick up available (You are highly encouraged to pick up your packet before race day!)

                  Failure to enter the transition area before the Cut Off time will result in a DNF – coverage & course support will not be provided after those times.
1:00PMish – The Awards Ceremony (Premium Awards, 1st, 2nd, 3rd overall/age groupers, and Triple players presentation – those who completed a sprint, olympic, and the Utah Half with RaceTri)
AWARDS & SWAG – All finishers will receive an AWESOME 4″ 5mm colorful
custom die cast medal. That’s one heavy medal! The top 3 overall and in the age groups listed below will receive a custom Utah Half 1st 2nd or 3rd place medal
Clydesdale 220lbs+           It takes a “small” army to manage the awards
Athena 165 lbs+
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 are like my mom and have a birthday on December 31st and are turning 45 on that day then you will be racing in the 45-49 age group (even though on the day of the race you are actually 44)  


All registered club members must indicate their club name during registration. This information can be amended in the notes section by going to:

3. Utah Half -> Notes

Swim Caps

Swim caps will be provided in your race packet. The issued cap must be worn during the swim.



Only athletes are allowed in the transition areas, please instruct family members and friends to stay outside of the transition area.

USAT rules state that competitors may wear wetsuits if the water temperature is 78 degrees or lower.

  • USAT rules also state that if the water temperature is between 78.1 – 83.9 degrees, competitors may wear wetsuits but will not be eligible for awards.
  • If the water temperature is 84 degrees or above, participants may not wear wetsuits.
  • If the water temperature is 78 degrees or lower everyone will receive series scoring points.
  • If the water temperature is between 78.1 – 83.9 degrees and you elect to wear a wetsuit, you will officially receive “0” points for that event. The event will count towards the minimum number of required events to become eligible for awards.
  • If the water temperature is 84 degrees or higher, no one may wear wetsuits and everyone will receive series scoring points


Electronic chip timing of the event will be provided. All participants will be timed and provided with 5 split times (swim, T1, Bike, T2, Run). If you are in the transition area when the race begins and then cross over one of the blue timing mats your timing chip will record that as a split time, please be sure your TA is set up and you have exited the transition area with plenty of time to spare before the start of the race. Results will be posted on Saturday within 8 hours of the final participant crossing the finish line. A link to the RESULTS will be posted on this webpage. Instructions for chip use will be provided at packet pick-up. A lost or misplaced timing chip will result in a $20 fee.


Relay Teams

The “biker” Relay team member will wait inside the transition area at the bike rack location where the “swimmer” will transfer the timing chip from one team member to another. The “runner” relay team member will be waiting in the same place for the “biker” to return.  Each team will be issued one timing chip, one swim cap, and one bib number.

Refund: There will be no refunds, no exceptions.
Transfers: There are no transfers (giving up your spot to another person), except for relay team members – *see note below.
Deferrals: Deferrals for medical reasons will be handled on a case by case basis. 

*Those on relay teams must find a replacement.  There are no refunds or deferrals for relay teams or team members.

Same Day Registrations: There will be NO same day registration. Registration closes on Wednesday August 20th or when the race reaches its cap of 500 participants.

We still need volunteers if you know someone who will be at the race cheering you on and they can lend a helping hand with front row race action as a volunteer please have them contact:



Finish line hydration and goodies will be available for athletes. To request a favorite please email
