The hype now shifts to St. George 70.3, race #3 in the inaugural Utah Triathlon Championship Series and the sole Ironman branded race in our state boundaries. We see it as our duty to kickstart the adrenaline flow, so here we present our best attempt at the list of locals who will be toeing the line.

Unfortunately, anyone who hasn't done a Utah triathlon in a few years (or ever) won't show up in this list because they're not in our results database. There will most likely also be a batch of locals signing up last minute. Apologies to anyone we missed, and good luck all!

Pro triathlete Sarah Jarvis is ready to throw down on her home course

If you're not racing St. George but have the itch to race soon, consider other local May races: TriUtah's Woman of Steel (May 12th) as well as RaceTri's "ULO" & BBSC's Sand Hollow, both on May 19th.

Get out and race!

Utah-based Pro Jennifer Lentzke - also ready for battle

local pro Ashley Paulson (2nd from right),
is shockingly fast on the run

Kate Westra, F2024 belt holder from last season,
was also on the AG podium at St. George '17

the infamous Hot Pink Triathlete, aka Kaisha Simmons


Coach Heather Casey, the War Eagle

Kona qualifier Diane Tracy

Bryce Beckstrand is fresh off a stellar race at Salem

Dan Johnston - very talented young buck!


Jake Peterson dominates short-course racing... 
can he replicate at 70.3? 

Dan Miller is a wild animal never to be tamed

Christopher White knows how to mix business with pleasure

Mike "Bring the Hurt" Bringhurst

the always dangerous Jeff Bosch has another 
year of experience under his belt

Steve Monson is the current M4549 belt holder
 and off to a fantastic start in 2018

the G Man, Gerald Brady, fears zero races

Thomas Risse is a baaaad m***********

Mary Day, Stephanie Shew and Perry Hacker - 3 of Utah's finest

Sara "Sage" Maaranen is back for a 
2nd helping of Snow Canyon

Amber Blair, current F3034 belt holder, is back for more as well

few humans can hang with Kyle Lewis 

Sidney Smith - No Limits!

still true a year later... the X Man is all bizness on race day and seldom disappoints

and once again, Gregory Focker was too chicken to sign up. What's your
excuse this year, Focker??

Salem Spring - Prelim Start List

Below is a preliminary look at the start list for the 16th and FINAL running of the legendary Salem Spring triathlon.

Saturday's forecast is looking like a gorgeous spring day with highs in the mid 60's.

Still another day or two if you want to join the party and give Salem a proper send off... register here!

the amazing Omar Bermejo will be there... will you?

“It is not the critic who counts; not the wo/man who points out how the strong wo/man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the wo/man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends her/himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if s/he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that her/his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” - Theodore Roosevelt
