Collegiate Regional Championship
Sprint and Olympic Distance Triathlon
Established in the fall of 2017, the Chisholm Trail Triathlon was started with the idea in mind of having a late season race for both our members and the college triathletes in our region! This course will be slightly different than Route 66 Triathlon at the same venue in early June, stay tuned for updated course maps!
- OLYMPIC DISTANCE TRI & AQUABIKE
The 1500 meter swim is an open water swim in Lake El Reno. (NOTE: At the Race Director's discretion the Olympic will either be a 1 loop course or a 2-loop triangle swim). Wetsuits should be permitted, lake temperature should approximately be mid 70's. Watch Facebook for lake temperature updates. The 40K bike course is an out and back, 2-loop version of the sprint course with the turn around just before transition. The 10K run course is paved, flat and winding asphalt road, (2-time) out and back course.
Aquabike event is ONLY offered on the Route 66 Olympic distance event (1500m swim-40k bike). Same course as the Olympic Distance Triathlon, you only have a 100 yard run across the finish line!
- SPRINT DISTANCE TRIATHLON (No Aquabike)
The 750 meter swim is an open water swim in Lake El Reno. Triangle course. Wetsuits should be permitted, lake temperature should approximately be mid 70's. The 20K mile bike course is out and back, the majority being on Route 66 with a few slight inclines. The 5K run course is paved, flat and winding asphalt road, out and back course.
