What's Happening

The third annual Daybreak Triathlon will take place this Saturday, June 11 in South Jordan, Utah. Offering both Sprint and Olympic distances, the event attracts elite local athletes as well as beginners of all ages.
The Sprint distance is a half mile swim, 12 mile bike ride and five kilometer run (in that order). The Olympic distance is double those distances: a one mile swim, 24 mile bike ride and 10 kilometer run. Event presenter US Trisports Race Management is also offering an Aqua-Velo category that includes the swimming and biking events, but emits the run.
The bike course begins in Daybreak, then goes out to the Kennecott Copper mine and back. The running course follows the fantastic trail systems around Oquirrh Lake The swim course this year has been changed to point-to-point, meaning competitors will swim from one beach to another.
“This type of swim is great for the competitors and spectators alike,” said Aly Brooks, USA Triathlon Certified Race Director for US Trisports and Daybreak resident.
17-year-old Alex Bowcut, the defending Daybreak Tri Sprint Distance Champion, will be competing against seasoned athletes twice his age in an attempt to defend his championship. At any given race, 30 percent of athletes will typically be participating in their first triathlon. US Trisports expects about 400 participants for the race, which will end in the heart of the Daybreak community.
As the Triathlon concludes, Daybreak will cater to competitors and spectators with What’s Cooking at DaybreakA Celebration of All Things Delicious. Activities include culinary demonstrations, live music, free samples and healthy fun for kids. Perhaps the most anticipated event is The Iron Pig “Battle of Champions,” where dueling chefs frantically prepare an entrée and a dessert, vying for the coveted Iron Pig Trophy. All this and more is happening on Saturday afternoon, which should be a great way for race participants to recover, and provide some tasty entertainment for everyone in the community.
