Life Time Tri Minneapolis offers International, Sprint and SuperSprint distance races for both individuals and relay teams (2-3 people).
The race starts with a swim in the calm, warm waters of Lake Nokomis. With exception of the premier waves, triathletes begin the swim with a time trial start (2 athletes every 2-3 seconds) from the beach. All participants complete a triangle course in a clockwise direction.
The Life Time Tri Minneapolis takes cyclists on a rolling tour of scenic, tree lined parklands and friendly neighborhoods along the Minnehaha Parkway. The Bike Course is unique in that it is 100% closed to traffic. This provides extra safety for participants along with plenty of space for passing and now, nice, smooth roads for our riders.
The Run Course leads all athletes along a gorgeous loop around Lake Nokomis. International distance athletes will complete two loops before finishing, while Sprint athletes complete one. Super Sprint athletes will follow an abbreviated Sprint course, eliminating the western edge of the traditional course.
