Description

Welcome to the 2014 Greenville Triathlon

Greenville Tri Finish Line

The Greenville Triathlon has become one of South Carolina's largest events. With its beginner friendly atmosphere and elite level field, the Greenville Triathlon offers something for all ranges of athlete. It is very rare to see an event with so many first timers racing along side some of the state's best.

LogoThe event begins with a 400 meter pool swim in the 50 meter Westside Aquatic Center facility. Athletes will begin two at a time, going off every 10 seconds and swim one way in each lane. At each wall athletes will go under the lane rope and into the next lane until a total of 8 lengths have been completed.

The bike course is a one loop 15 mile course. The first and last sections of the course are on failry busy 4 lane highways. However, the curbside lane is closed from traffic on all these sections of highway. The middle portion of the course is on quiet country roads. Terrain is moderate to hilly with no major grades, just long rolling climbs and descents. Turns are marked with pavement arrows and directional signs. Police and volunteers control all intersections on the course.

The run course is a two loop 3 mile course. Athletes will begin the first 1.5 mile loop in front of the aquatic center before returning back to the aquatic center to begin lap number two. After the second lap a right turn to the finish will end the day. The course is mostly pavement with a 1/4 mile stretch of each loop being run on hard packed dirt roads. Turns are marked with pavement arrows and directional signs.

Event Site Rules

Event Capacity
This event is limited to the first 400 registrations.

Swim Time Changes
If you are trying to make an adjustment to your estimated swim time change given during registration please click HERE to learn how to do this.

Our registration system allows for people to access their registrations and adjust their swim times prior to the event.

NOTE: All swim times must be adjusted no later than Thursday, August 7, 2014 at 7AM. After this time, participants will no longer be able to make this adjustment on their registration (the system will lock out any changes). Swim times will not be adjusted after this time for any reason.

Submitting a Swim Time
All participants must submit a 100 yard swim time for seeding purposes.

Being a pool swim with a staggered start, participants are seeded from fastest to slowest. It is in your best interest to submit an accurate 100 yard "pace" time for your 400 meter swim. In other words, don't submit your fastest 100 yard swim time, submit a 100 yard time that represents what you'll do on event day over the 400 meter distance.
