3/28/2018: Clemson Triathlon to be Held at Original Venue
After verbal commitments to host the Clemson Triathlon at a new venue were not honored, Clemson University has stepped up in a huge way to allow the 2018 Clemson Triathlon to be held at its original location, the Clemson Outdoor Recreation Beach.  We can not thank Clemson University enough for working with us on this as we, and they, had fully prepared for us to host the event at a new location, and turning around approvals for us this late in the game is no small task.  We are excited to be back at our home and can't wait for another great Clemson Triathlon!

 

Description

Welcome to the Clemson Triathlon!

The Clemson Triathlon moves into its twenty first season and is a great early season tester becoming a favorite among southeastern area triathletes. The 2018 venue will once again be at the Snow Family Outdoor Fitness & Wellness Center (Clemson Campus Beach) as it has been for the past 20 years.  

The Swim is a one loop 750 meter course which is always wetsuit legal with water temperatures in the low to mid 70's. A clockwise rectangular shape swim course with start waves of less than 100 athletes per wave. Depending on the wind there can be some chop with little to no current.

The bike is a one loop 11 mile course in quiet rural roads. There is one short but steep grade with the rest of the course being best described as rolling, but on the more hilly side of rolling. Road surfaces are good and traffic is light. Turns are marked with orange pavement arrows and orange directional signs. Police and volunteers will man each intersection.

The run is an out and back 5K course which travels onto Clemson University campus and onto the East Beach Dike for one of the best views of the area you will ever see.


SHIRT POLICY 
Anyone registering within the final 2 weeks leading up to the event date will not be guaranteed a shirt as orders must be placed at that time.
