USAT Regional Qualifier- We are excited to announce that the Omaha Triathlon has been chosen again to host the 2014 USAT Regional Championship, the 2014 Paratriathlon Regional Championship, and the Best of the Us Amateur Triathlete Competition.
The olympic distance is our main course for this event. Register as an individual or as a team. The distances consist of a 1500 meter swim, a 40KM bike, and a 10K run.
THE BIKE - The bike course is a 40 km, out and back, fast and rolling course. Out past Lake Cunningham East on State St. then North on 72nd, West on Bennington Road, merge right to HWY 36, and turn-around at Bennington Lake. Follow the same course back to the lake area.
TEAM EVENTS - The Olympic distance triathlon is open for team registration. Teams may have either 2 or 3 athletes participate.
