Race Course

Triathlon Eugene will take athletes on a challenging tour showcasing Lane County. It will offer Olympic, Sprint, Super Sprint and Youth Courses for participants of all ages and skill levels.

The swim will take place in Fern Ridge Reservoir, nestled in the Coast Range foothills. The bike course will send riders on a scenic, undulating tour with the Olympic Course before returning to Richardson Park for the final leg, the run.

All run courses will utilize the Park’s internal roads and paths; the Olympic and Sprint bike courses will venture outside of the Park on Clear Lake Road and return to Finish inside the Park.

SwimStream Start

Here's how the SwimStream start works:

Participants will be allowed to self-determine when they start the swim portion of Triathlon Eugene. Those with the fastest anticipated swim time will be encouraged to start at the front of the groupings/stream. For the Olympic Distance, this would be below 22 to 24 minutes; for the Sprint it would be below 11 to 13 minutes.

The swim chute will be very similar to other swim starts you've seen.  Volunteers will be holding a sign that has a specific time on it (similar to a run pace for a half or full marathon). Swimmers should line up in their appropriate anticipated time.  Note, just like a running event, we will not force someone in a specific time/pace.  It is on the honor system. This will allow some variability if friends, members of a triathlon club, co-workers from the same company, or family members want to swim together.  We want swimmers to have maximum comfort and relaxation when entering the lake.

Once a stream enters the start chute, swimmers will move toward the end of the chute, cross the timing mat and proceed directly into the water. Similar to a funnel. Your time starts when you cross the SwimStream timing mat. We will have streams of approximately 30 swimmers each (e.g., 30 swimmers in the under-22/24-minute Olympic swim stream).  We will run streams of swimmers until we get 125 participants in the water. At this point, athletes will be allowed into the water as earlier streams of swimmers finish and come up onto the beach. Lifeguards and our swim coordinators will assist in controlling the flow of the swimmers (like turning off and on a spigot).

Once the Olympic distance race is in the water, we will have a approximately 10 minute gap and then start the Sprint under-11 minute swimmers, and so on until all the competitors have left the beach. The Sprint will start once the Olympic swimmers are past the turn buoys, and the Super Sprint starts after the Sprint swimmers are past the turn buoys.

We strongly encourage warm-ups prior to the swim start. This will help you get acclimated to the water.
