As we did with Ice Breaker (now only 6 weeks from this Saturday) and will do for future races as well, here are our TOP 10 REASONS why you should hit up the classic Salem Spring triathlon on April 21st!

10) With the inaugural race being held in 2003, come celebrate Salem's "Sweet 16" party. They grow up so fast, don't they?

9) The first open water swim tri of the Utah season!

8) The thermal-fed pond combined with our mild winter = nice water temps. Salem was originally held in April, as it is now, and from personal experience it was plenty warm even in a thin, sleeveless wetsuit.

7) With the iconic bridge, 2 loop bike course, and a park as the venue, arguably the most spectator and family friendly race on the local calendar.

6) Second race of the inaugural Utah Triathlon Championship Series. Get a race under your belt early and set yourself up for a great season.

5) Venturing to St. George in May? Why not kick off the race cobwebs two weeks prior?

4) Utah Tri Buzz is still working through our SWAG hit list... if you've been eluding us, come and collect!

3) Great race and venue for beginners and veterans alike. Being only a Sprint distance race (no Olympic distance), there's always a competitive field, but at the same time the 800m swim in calm waters, ~12 mi bike and 5k run is a great event for beginners.

2) One of the coolest finishes around, up over the bridge you swam under earlier.

1) Aaron Shamy pre-race speech. Still #1!

So hope to see you there, and bring a friend or three.  Not racing?? Volunteer! The more the merrier, RaceTri would surely love your support.
