This epic southern Utah race is a local’s favorite. Sand Hollow offers an Olympic & Sprint Distance Triathlon, Sprint Duathlon and Olympic Aquabike.

You can expect an enjoyably cool morning as the sun beings to rise over the water. The weather is typically warm and sunny with highs between 60 and 90 degrees. Most athletes know this area because of the infamous Half distance triathlon that takes place earlier in the month.
