SPRINT: 750M Swim, 14 mile bike, 5k (3.1 mile) run
OLYMPIC/INTERMEDIATE: 1500M Swim, 25 mile Bike, 10k (6.2 mile run)
LONG: 1.2 mile Swim, 54 mile bike, 13.1 mile run
The expected water temp in September, is between 65-69º.
At the swim start, please look for the signs for average 100 yard swim paces and seed yourself according to your swimming ability.
From here we will be conducting a rolling start. What does this mean? We will funnel athletes through a chute, approximately 10 feet wide, into the water. Once you cross the timing mat, your race time starts. Why the rolling start? If everyone seeds themselves correctly, it’s safer, reduces congestion, and athletes can start together with friends and family members regardless of age/gender.
All distances begin the swim by entering and finishing on the southwest lake. Thank you Still Water Estates for letting us play in your lake for the morning!
SWIM CAPS ASSIGNMENTS:
Long Course - Pink caps
Olympic Course - Green caps
Sprint - Red Caps
The Sprint course consists of a single 750m loop, while the Olympic course consists of a single .9 mile loop.
The Long Course swim is a 1.2 mile swim consisting of a small .2 mile loop, followed by a full 1 mile loop around the perimeter of the lake and east island.
Still Water is 8’ deep and is about 60’ wide. In the event that you need to get out, it’s easy to get to the side of this lake.
Water safety folks on Kayaks and SUP’s will be monitoring the water portion of the event.
If you find yourself in need of support while in the water, simply wave your hand/ arms or swim to the nearest support team member. You may hold on to any support vessel without penalty as long as there is no forward movement. If, for any reason, you need to cut your swim short, let the water support team know and give them your race number.They will bring you to back to land.
Because this event has two transition areas, and for the immediate need to clear the street the transition #1 is located, you will need a gear bag to place all of your swimming gear in so that we can transport it to the finish-line for you.
YOU MUST HAVE A GEAR BAG!
To help reduce the use of plastic, we are asking that you bring your own gear bag. However, if you need one, you can ask for one at Packet Pickup. YOU MUST mark your bag with your number and place ALL of your swim gear (including your wetsuit) in the bag before leaving T1 on the bike. If your gear bag is not marked, or if you left something out of the bag (like a $400 wetsuit), we will have no idea who’s it is and it will be set-aside at T2.
Per USAT rules, you also risk a 2 minute penalty if you do not place all items in your T1 gear bag. DO NOT LEAVE valuable items such as phones, keys, etc. in your gear bag.
Because space is limited in T1 and in the transportation vehicles, we will not shuttle down items that were not a necessity for your race. For example: a folding camp chair so you can sit down to put on your bike shoes is not a necessity, buckets, etc.
TriUtah staff and volunteers will transport all gear bags to T2 for you.
As of Wednesday evening, Sept 8th, there are still a few minor changes being worked out near the bike finish due to construction on the new highway. A whole lot of construction is happening in Syracuse. Luckily, the roads we ride on, will not be affected in a major way. However, we have had to adjust the bike course out on Antelope Island due to requirements from Antelope Island State Park. This change only affects the LONG Distance course. See the map below for details.
In your packet, you will receive two bike stickers. The small one is for the front of your helmet. The larger rectangular number is to be affixed on your bike frame. They are designed to be wrapped around your seat post or seat frame.
Olympic and Long Course participants will receive a neon green wristband. Wear this wristband during your race. It enables Antelope Island personnel identify you as participants of Brineman.
A FEW RULES TO REMEMBER:
1. Helmets are required at ALL times on the bike course. Be sure your helmet is strapped before you exit the transition area, and do not release your helmet strap until you have racked your bike. (USAT rules!)
2. No Headphones at anytime on the course. No music playing from your phone. If you carry your phone, you cannot pull it out to take pictures, play music or call your buddy. If there is an emergency you are witnessing, you may use your phone after you have stopped and dismounted from your bike)
3. NO Drafting. We have USA Triathlon officials ready to dish out penalties to those who draft. Drafting is considered riding three bike lengths behind another rider.
ENTERING ANTELOPE ISLAND.
When you enter Antelope Island, follow the cones which will direct you to the far right of the entrance. They will be zig zagged on purpose to force you to slow down. Antelope Island officials are requiring you slow down for a moment to collect bib numbers. (sorry its just part of the rules)
Be sure that your neon green wristbands are visible as well.
It's important to know and familiarize yourself with race rules. We strongly encourage you to visit www.usatriathlon.org for all the rules of triathlon!
Please see below for PDF's of your bike courses.(revised 9/9/21) The roads are NOT closed to traffic, so be aware of vehicles on the roundabouts and share the road.
The Sprint turnaround is just before Antelope Drive. The Olympic turnaround is at the end of the causeway in the parking area, and the Long Course turnaround is at the Ranch on Antelope Island.
Long Distance Course Change: Some of you may be sad, some happy; but the climb up to Buffalo point has unfortunately been eliminated from the course for safety reasons with vehicle traffic. No sad faces or tears, please.
IMPORTANT!! OLYMPIC AND LONG DISTANCE CYCLISTS-- your bike number and wristband MUST BE visible when you pass through the Park Entrance. If it is not, you will be stopped by park personnel, which really would suck. So, please make sure your helmet sticker and bike stickers are affixed properly.
NEW- The last portion of all bike courses on bluff street, where you will turn into the entrance of Jensen Park, dismount, and run with your bike to transition.
Athletes will dismount just before T2 and get ready for the fast and flat run.
NOTE: There will be two (2) aid station on the bike course for the Long Distance Course. There are no aid stations on the bike course for the Olympic and Sprint Distance Courses.
Due to the rise in Covid cases, these aid stations are self serve. Which means, if you need something, you will have to stop to get your nutrition. This is a Health Department requirement, which we have agreed to enforce. We'd rather race with a few discomforts, then not. right?
Due to road and bike path construction, the run course has changed this year. Please read carefully as things are different.
Please review the new PDF's below for route changes.
IREMEMBER, Red signs mean Run. Blue Signs mean Bike.
Short triathlon for kids 11 and under called the Shark Attack!
It consists of a 100 yard swim, 1 mile bike, & 1/4 mile run.
Kids will swim at Still Water Lakes, bike to Jensen Park on the paved trail, and run around the park. There is a small obstacle due to construction on the trail. The kids will have to dismount their bikes, walk over the dirt obstacle, and mount their bikes again, and head to the finish. Parents are invited but not required, to accompany their little brinekids! See maps below!

SAFETY / MEDICAL
Medical personnel will provide on-site first aid and medical assistance if needed. They will be located at the start and near the finish line.
Lifeguards on kayaks, SUP’s and boats will be monitoring the water portion of the event.
Let’s get real- We don’t know what we’d do without the fun loving people that come out and give their time to support events. PLEASE show them the utmost respect and freely pass out “Thank you’s” and high 5’s!

TIMING CHIPS, BODY MARKING, AND AFFIXING YOUR BIKE AND BIB NUMBERS
Volunteers will be there bright and early to get your body marked with your race number. Listen for those enthusiastic people calling out for body marking and head on over to get it done. Your race number will be marked on your left arm.
You have two bike numbers. The small one is for the front of your helmet. The larger rectangular one is for your bike.
You must attach the bike number provided in your race packet to your bike. The bike numbers have adhesive on the back that will not harm the paint on your bike frame. Failure to securely attach the number will result in a USAT time penalty.
You DO NOT need to wear your bib number during the swim or bike. However, it MUST be worn during the run. Safety pins will be provided at packet pickup.
*Your entire team must be present together before your packet will be issued.
Relay teams will be issued a single timing chip, bike number, and run bib number. The chip hand-off takes place inside the transition area at the assigned bike rack.

Failure to secure the bike number will result in a USAT time penalty. You DO NOT need to wear the bib number during the bike. However, it MUST be worn during the run.
You will have your very own space in the transition area. Look for your race number. This is where you will rack your bike and place your race gear. Place your gear to the left of your bike, under your bike.
Rack your bike by placing the nose of your seat on the bike rack so your front tire is sticking out. Please remember, your neighbor needs room too, so please only bring what is needed into the transition area.
Remember There is no bike riding inside the transition area before or during the event. Doing so will result in a time penalty enforced by the USA Triathlon officials.
ALSO please help us by letting your family and friends know that they must wait outside the transition area. Thanks for helping us with this!
