Orem's longest running Splash Distance Tri is BACK! COVID and Construction couldn't keep us away! Get registered today!
The Turkey Tri is a Splash distance triathlon which includes a 5k Run, 12 Mile Bike, and 350 Meter Swim in that order.
The 5K run is a single loop run with one uphill section on 800 West.
The 12 mile bike course is a three loop set up. This is an open course; cars will be driving alongside you. Orem PD will be located at all 4-way stops and lights along the course. This does not mean that you should blow through the intersection. Please use caution as Orem PD will do their best to keep you safe. Be prepared for any weather conditions. Temps vary at around 45-50 degrees for the bike ride but be prepared for cold weather.
The swim course is the last of the three disciplines and is indoor at the Orem Fitness Center. This is a 350 meter swim in a 50 meter pool. Participants will enter one end and finish at the other end. It is a snake style swim meaning the you swim 50 and snake under the line and swim the next 50 in the opposite direction. All swimmers will be traveling the same direction in their respective lanes. Water temps are around 80 degrees.
