The crowning and longest multisport event on the Wasatch Front … 
2017 Finisher Medal 
 
 
RaceTri & Toughman events are pleased to present the annual TOUGHMAN 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?  
 
The 2017 course will be located in beautiful Utah County with a swim out of Lincoln Beach at Utah Lake and a bike and run in and around West Mountain… the good news is this course is going to be flat and fast and friends and family will be able to see you at multiple points during your race. Race Location 4700 Lincoln Beach Rd, Spanish Fork, UT 84660 See Race Maps below:

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

WETSUITS and WATER TEMPS
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

TIMING

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.
