Event Details: The Omaha Triathlon features a variety of options for athletes to choose from: Olympic and Sprint, Individual, Olympic Team Relay, Duathlon Individual, Aqua Bike (Swim and Bike only). Olympic Relay Team can consist of either 2 or 3 teammates.
These events are sanctioned by USA Triathlon (USAT). The term "sanction" refers to the compliance of a multisport event to USAT's safety requirements. Safety plans, course maps and event details must be submitted for review by experienced USAT staff. This ensures events are safe and fair competition environments. All USAT-sanctioned races require you to have a current USAT membership. If you don't have an annual USAT membership, (only $50 per year), you can purchase a single day USAT pass for $15. Both may be purchased during online registration.
Olympic Distance: The Olympic distance is our main course for this event. Register as an individual or as a team. The distances consist of a 1500m swim, a 40km bike, and a 10K run.
Sprint Distance: The sprint distance is 1/2 the distance of the olympic. The sprint swim waves start immediately following the olympic waves. Both the sprint and olympic race courses run concurrently. Athletes will do one lap for sprint distance.
