This is one of Life Time Tri’s marquee events and we plan on making it yours too! Come out and race in the same location as Ironman Arizona…swim in the same lake, experience riding on most of same bike course, and finish in the famed Tempe Beach Park. This event is a great tune up for Ironman or just a great way to get out and compete in a half-iron distance event in a pheomenal setting. Race this one and you will get a custom visor, a tech tee and one heck of a good time!
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 all athletes. Water temperatures will be approximately in the mid 70s. (Note: 78 degrees considered wetsuit legal by USAT).
The bike portion is a relatively flat, urban, looped course; each loop is approximately 18.5 miles.
The run is a 6.5-mile loop around Tempe Town Lake with some great views of ASU and the developing landscape of Tempe. All athletes must complete three loops of the bike and two loops of the run course.
Historically, the weather race day has seen high temperatures in the low 90s, with lows in the mid 60s. It’s a dry heat! The race starts cool and heats up while you do.
