Run Course Change
Posted: September 13, 2018
Due to continued high rise construction along the north side of Tempe Town Lake, Sunday’s Life Time Tri Tempe Run Course has been modified. While the loop configuration has changed, course distances remain unchanged:
- International Distance: 6.2 Miles (2 loops)
- Sprint Distance: 3.1 Miles (1 loop)
- SuperSprint Distance: 2.0 Miles (1 modified loop)
Revised Run Course Description:
Athletes will continue to exit Transition at the same area, heading east along the Tempe Town Lake water line. Before approaching Scottsdale Road (approximately .5 mile mark), athletes will hit Aid Station #2, turnaround, then head west along the upper section of the pedestrian path.
SuperSprint participants will bypass the previously mentioned section. After exiting Transition and passing through Aid Station #1, they will immediately run south, connecting with Sprint and International distance athletes as they approach the base of the northbound Mill Avenue Bridge.
All participants will cross the Mill Avenue Bridge along the sidewalk. Once reaching Curry Road, athletes will turn east, then turn south along East Lake View Drive. Eventually they will loop to Washington Street (turning east), then south along the southbound Mill Avenue Bridge sidewalk.
Once reaching the base of the Mill Avenue Bridge, International distance athletes will follow signage to start their 2nd loop. Sprint and SuperSprint distance participants will proceed directly into to the Finish Line chute within Tempe Beach Park.
