Sprint & Olympic

**The Olympic participants will complete 2 loops of each course.

The event will begin on the shores of the beach, with a transition adjacent to the bath house. Athletes will swim 750m starting from the shore of the Delta Lake swimming beach. The 10.7 mile bike loop course on NY Route 46 featuring a flat, smooth road with a bountiful riding lane is a perfect course. The 5K run course will be held entirely within the State Park itself AND THERE WILL BE A NEW RUN COURSE DESIGN FOR 2021.

Aqua Bike

Competition will complete the event after the bike. Finish times are recorded as participants cross the timing mat as they enter transition. Finishers can make their way to the Finish Line for their race medals. There are no relay team entries for the AquaBike.

Relay Teams

The Sprint & Olympic Triathlon can be entered as a relay team of 2 or 3 members; each completing 1-2 of the event legs. Team members exchange the timing chip inside the transition area.

Delta Double

It's simple really. First, compete in the Delta Lake Sprint Triathlon, then suit up and give the Olympic race a go. Add it all up and it's almost a half iron race.

Athletes competing in the Delta Double should plan on finishing the Sprint race in 1:25 or less to ensure they get to the starting line of the Olympic on time.

All ages will complete a 50m swim, 1 mile bike, 400m run
