What I love about this race:
The prettiest sprint bike course in Utah! For the first time ever, we will do a reverse-order triathlon, starting with a beautiful run course up Payson Canyon and back. What brings people back year after year are the beautiful orchards we bike through on a relatively flat course; the friendly spectator area, including a kids playground, and vendors; an awesome finisher medal; an accurate timing chip system; and an easy and fun swim! The perfect triathlon for first-time triathletes or those seasoned athletes looking for a fun, fast, and beautiful sprint triathlon! In 2023 we'll also be offering a 5K run!

TRIATHLON & 5K CHECK IN: 5-6:30 a.m.
Triathlon and 5K begin together at 7 a.m.

DISTANCE
5K run (3.1 miles), 18K bike (11 miles), 300 yard swim

RUN
Heading east toward Peteetneet Road (600 E), runners will turn south to run up the canyon until they meet the police turnaround at about 1.5 miles. On their way back, runners will turn left one block earlier than the "out" road onto 800 south, and then one last right onto Main Street to come into T1. The 5K ONLY runners will use the same 5K course.T1
Runners will enter Transition 1 (T1) from the Main Street side, grab their bikes and helmets and exit out the other side of the transition area.

T1
Runners will enter Transition 1 (T1) from the Main Street side, grab their bikes and helmets and exit out the other side of the transition area.

BIKE*
Racers will leave the transition area on foot, mount their bicycles on the road, and will continue along an 11-mile route. Cycling through blooming cherry orchards and beautiful farms is what makes this relatively flat ride worth a try. Coming up over the freeway overpass and back into downtown Payson, racers will have unobstructed views of the Payson LDS temple, as well as miles and miles of south Utah County.

T2
Dismounting your bike on Main Street, participants will walk their bikes into the transition area to prepare for the last leg of the race, the swim!

SWIM
For the first time in Payson Orchards Triathlon history, we will have the swim be the last of the three disciplines. After exiting T2, racers will make their way barefooted to the south east corner of the pool, coming in the side gate and enter the pool while watching out for other swimmers. Swimmers will snake up and back in each lane, staying to the RIGHT side of the lane, and then under the lane line (only on the south side of the pool) to repeat until they exit the pool after swimming in all six lanes, equaling 300 yards. Racer's times will stop when they exit the pool and walk over the timing mat.

TIMING CHIP SYSTEM AWESOMENESS
RunnerCard will be providing our chip timing, and they do a phenomenal job. After you finish you can go over to their trailer and print out a list of your times and rankings.

FINISH LINE/SPECTATOR AREA
While youre exhausting yourself out on the course, your family and friends can enjoy a fun spectator area filled with vendors, kids activities, and music. When you cross that finish line, we'll drape you in your finisher medal! You did it!

All participants will be given a swag bag including an awesome, super-soft t-shirt, race bib, finisher medal, and other sponsor items.
