_ The 2022 Payson Orchards Triathlon:
Payson Orchards Triathlon and 5K
Saturday, June 18, 2022
655 S Main St, Payson, UT 84651
7:00 a.m. wave race start
What I love about this race:
The prettiest sprint bike course in Utah! In 2022 we have a brand new, beautiful run course up Payson Canyon and back! But what brings people back year after year are the beautiful orchards we bike through on a relatively flat course; the friendly spectator area, including a kids playground, bounce house, and vendors; an awesome finisher medal; an accurate timing chip system; and an easy and fun swim! The perfect triathlon for first-time triathletes or those seasoned athletes looking for a fun, fast, and beautiful sprint triathlon! In 2022 we'll also be offering a 5K run!

WAVE RACE START
We start the triathlon race with 30 people starting in the pool every 10 minutes. Please sign up for your race start time according to your 100 free time (as listed on the different sign-up times).
The 7 a.m. wave start will begin at the Payson City Pool (655 S Main St) where participants will line up in registration order from fastest to slowest swim times. Every ~15-25 seconds, a new swimmer will enter the pool to begin. The timing chip system will ensure accurate times of each leg of the race as well as the two transitions, from the first swimmer to the last. Swimmers will “snake” up and back in each lane, staying to the LEFT side of the lane, and then under the lane line to repeat until they exit the pool after swimming in all six lanes, equaling 300 yards.
Racers will leave the transition area on foot, mount their bicycles in the proper area, and continue along an 11-mile route. Cycling through blooming cherry orchards and beautiful farms is what makes this relatively flat ride worth a try. Coming up over the freeway overpass and back into downtown Payson, racers will have unobstructed views of the Payson LDS temple, as well as miles and miles of south Utah County.

Heading north down the hill, racers will go to the end of the road that ends at Memorial Park, turn right, and then head up toward the canyon on Peteetneet Road (600 E). Turning just before the mouth of the canyon onto Canyon Road, racers will travel through some beautiful Payson neighborhoods, and will be able to hear the music and screaming fans at the finish line as they turn back onto Main Street. Run-only racers will race the same 5K route. CLICK HERE FOR THE ROUTE ON MAPMYRUN.COM.
