The 2014 USA Triathlon Aquathlon National Championships will take place October 5 as part of the El Reno Route 66 Aquathlon in El Reno, Oklahoma. El Reno was established in 1889 and is located at the intersection of nostalgic Route 66 and the Chisholm Trail (Hwy. 81). The city began as a railroad town and was home to three land runs. A festival town, El Reno boasts many heritage celebrations, historic properties and the only rail-based trolley operating in the state of Oklahoma. While steeped in rich history, El Reno sits on the leading edge of oil, gas and wind technology for the state of Oklahoma with major plant sites and specialized training accessibility.
The 1500-meter open water swim will take place in Lake El Reno and is a triangle course.
NOTE: The Olympic-distance race will likely be a two-loop triangle swim with a 30-yard beach run between loops.
Wetsuits will likely be permitted. Watch message boards at www.triokc.org for lake temperature updates.
The 10km run course is a paved, flat and winding asphalt road and is a two-loop course.
There are no qualification standards to race the USA Triathlon Aquathlon National Championships and all skill levels are welcome. This is the only opportunity to qualify for Aquathlon World Championships.
