Get ready for the brand new Rifle Triathlon! The Rifle Triathlon is a super spring tirahtlon based out of Metro Park that will encompass the entire northeast quadrant of Rifle. The 450 yard swim will take place with heated timing at Art Dague Pool and Waterslide. After splashing out of the water, racers will mount bicycles and embark on a 10.2 kilometer journey along Rifle Creek Trail, up and around Deerfield Park, along the eastern city limits, then back to Whiteriver Ave, en route back to Metro Park. After hurriedly stowing bikes, racers will then set out to summit a foreboding 16th St hill along their 2.5 kilometer run, rounding out back to Whiteriver Ave., and taking everyone back to the start at Metro Park.. This epic competition of human endurance will end with a collective celebration in the park, where awards will be given.
We allow children under the age of 7 to complete the race with an adult, or if pre-approved by the event coordinator, they may complete it independently.
Teams are welcome, you may call to setup a team or when registering, or online an option to create or join a team is presented. If your team consists of only 2 people, with one person completing 2 separate legs, you must call or stop by the office or pool to complete registration.
