The 2022 Arden Park Youth Triathlon will feature the return of the Swim/Bike/Run format after a Swim/Run change in 2021. For new participants, this means swimming in the Arden Park pool, then riding a bike along La Sierra Drive, and then running around the park before finishing near the clubhouse.
The 2022 edition of the event will feature chip timing provided by SVE Timing (one of the largest event timers in the US, with hundreds of thousands of athletes relying on them for their times every year).
Features of chip timing include:
- Latest technology chip timing with straps attached around athlete ankles for highly accurate results
- Professional, experienced staff to set up equipment and run the systems on race day
Five timing points: swim into transition (split 1), Bike in and out (split 2 and 3), Run out (split 4) and finish.
- Race results posted online after the race and live during the event
We will be holding a free triathlon clinic including swim practice on Sunday, August 7, 2022. All aspects of the event will be covered and the pool will be open for 30 minutes with a lifeguard on duty.
There will be no Packet Pick-up in 2022. Participants will collect their bibs, timing chip, t-shirt, etc. on race morning during athlete check-in from 6:45 – 8:15 a.m.
