Registration open for Stansbury Park triathlons

Registration is open for the 13th annual Stansbury Park Days Triathlons set for Saturday, Aug. 17 and Sunday, Aug. 18.

“We expect another large turnout for both the sprint and kids triathlon,” said race chair Hillary Luke.

The major event begins with a 500-yard swim in Stansbury Lake, followed by a 12-mile out-and-back bike course to Erda, and finishes with a 3.1-mile run ending at the Stansbury Park clubhouse.

The course has proven to be popular for both experienced and beginning triathletes; however, it is limited to the first 125 who register.

Cost of the event, which also includes a T-shirt, is $30 for Stansbury Park residents, $40 for Tooele County residents, and $50 for those living outside the county. There is a $5 price increase after June 30.

Registration for both the adult and children’s triathlons is located online at bit.ly/2kuZj2p.

On the Friday evening before the major event, a children’s triathlon, consisting of a 50-yard swim at the clubhouse pool, a 3.2-mile bike ride, and 1-mile run is held for those 12 years of age and younger.

There is a $10 registration for the first child in the family and $5 for each additional participant.

The popular event is limited to the first 125 entrants.

“The purpose of the kids’ triathlon is to build confidence in our youth and to have fun,” Luke said.

“Community events like this require volunteer assistance and we are need of help for both the triathlons,” she added.

Those interested in volunteering may contact Luke at (435) 840-3290.
