Unfortunately, we will not be hosting the Rigby Lake Triathlon in 2020.
2019 Event Details
Please check back frequently as information may change. We will send out emails with updated information.
There will be both a Sprint and Intermediate (Olympic) distance triathlon as well as an Aquabike race. 2019 will be our sixth year hosting an Aquabike race.
The Jefferson Lake Recreation area is the staging site for this event. It has plenty of parking and easy access to the transition area for athletes and spectators. This venue truly is one of the greatest areas for spectators to watch their athlete. The park does charge a fee to enter. Due to parking availability, we have arranged for each athlete to be able to enter free of charge, but the park has requested that spectators pay the entry fee.
The Olympic Triathlon and Aquabike start will be at 7:00 a.m. and the Sprint Triathlon start will be at 8:00 a.m.
