BOULDER PEAK TRIATHLON SWIM COURSE (1500 Meters)
The 1,500-meter swim portion of the event starts and finishes east of the transition area at the Boulder Reservoir open swim area. The one-loop course is well marked by large buoys and begins on the west side of the open swim area. The flow is a clockwise direction and, upon exiting the swim, athletes will follow the marked course to transition. This year’s event will feature wave starts from the beach. Groups of 25-50 people will release every few minutes onto the swim course, alleviating previous swim congestion.
Please note athletes must wear the swim cap provided to them at athlete check-in. There are absolutely no dogs or glass allowed at the Boulder Reservoir.
NEW BOULDER PEAK SPRINT TRIATHLON BIKE COURSE (17 Miles)
The bike course for the Boulder Peak Sprint Triathlon will take athletes on a clock-wise circumnavigation of Boulder Reservoir. Athletes will head out to 36 via Jay rd, where they'll encounter rolling terrain before turning right onto Neva rd for a fun, fast, and flowing section with a wide bike shoulder. After Neva rd, athletes will head south on 63rd and face a few rolling hills before a flat and fast return section on 119! Overall this is a very beginner friendly course, but great for the seasoned veteran to challenge themselves to a new sprint triathlon PR!
NEW BOULDER PEAK OLYMPIC TRIATHLON BIKE COURSE (23.5 Miles)
The bike course for the Boulder Peak Olympic Triathlon will take athletes on a similar course as the sprint, but instead of heading east on Neva rd, riders will continue north on 36. After a few more rolling hills, riders will descend down Nelson rd for a fun and fast downhill section before hitting the rollers on 63rd ave. Overall, this is a beginner friendly Olympic distance course and a great warm-up for longer late season events!
