True Cougar Triathlon – 2009

Get ready for the 2nd annual BYU True Cougar Triathlon! The race will be October 17th 2009 at 9 AM at the Richards Building. This race is the ideal for beginners or for people who are looking to do an inexpensive and unique race. The race fee will be only $25. The race will be held completely on the BYU campus! The race will go as follows:

  • 6.2 mile bike around BYU campus (followed the 5k course twice)
  • 1.8 mile run through BYU campus (followed the 3k course)
  • 200 yard swim in the RB pool (snake style – down one lane, back the next, etc.)

The transitions were in the RB parking lot.

The bike-run-swim order will allow us to race in cold/bad weather and also permit us to allow a larger amount of participants.

We will have aid stations on the bike and run, police traffic control, professional transition racks, signs marking the route, and experienced volunteers all there to help you have the most enjoyable race possible.

Division and overall winners will receive medals and all athletes will get a race T-shirt.

Registration is now open and we are expecting several hundred athletes so sign up soon in case we have to close registration due to overly large crowds.

In order to register for the race follow this link:

If you are a BYU student you pay for your race entry by following this link:

Sign in, click on “organizations,” and search for the triathlon club. You will end up paying your “club dues” and that will register you for the race. When you have paid your name will appear in our spreadsheets.

If you are not a BYU student you fill out your information in the google spreadsheet above and we save your information until race day. Bring a photo ID race morning and you will be required to pay with cash or check only at the race venue before body marking.

We understand that this isn’t the typical way of signing up for a race but as we are a BYU club and the race is on BYU campus we abide by a different set of rules.

Athletes who register before October 10th are guaranteed a race T-shirt in the size requested. We will try to accommodate for those who register late and order extra shirts in anticipation of those who will register later, but no promises.
