Lifetime Tri - Tempe
This is great race to prep for IM 70.3 AZ or IMAZ as this Olympic distance Triathlon takes place on the same swim, bike and run course. All participants start at Tempe Beach Park, on the south bank, just west of the Mill Avenue Bridge. The swim takes place in a manmade lake that is very calm unless there are high winds (i.e. storm force). The swim course will be a rectangle for both sprint and international athletes. Water temperatures will be approximately 80 degrees. We will be monitoring and posting the temperature of the lake right up to the event (Note: 78 degrees is considered wetsuit legal by USAT). * Swim course cutoff time: 9:15 a.m. The bike portion is a relatively flat, urban, looped course; each loop is approximately 12.3 miles. * Bike course cutoff time (no new laps): 10:00 a.m. * Complete bike course cutoff time: 11:30 a.m. The run is a 3.1-mile loop around Tempe Town Lake with some great views of ASU and the developing landscape of Tempe. International distance athletes must complete two loops of both the bike and run course. * Run course cutoff time: 12:45 p.m. Historically, the weather race day has seen high temperatures in the low 90s, with lows in the mid 60s. It’s a dry heat!
