About the Event:

On June 1st, 2019, the Hopkins Royal Triathlon will be offering a fun new event to promote multi-sport activities in our state. It will feature an open water swim (only) competition, with 3 different swim distances to choose from. Plus, we will be inviting event Directors from all over the state to come out to let you know about their events. As an extra bonus, we will also be hosting a triathlon gear swap meet (aka: garage sale) so start putting things aside now!

Swim Event- option of .3 mile (Sprint), 1.5K/.9 mile (Olympic), or a 1.2 (Half IM) distance
Race Director Expo- come learn (from representatives) what events and activities are happening this summer
Swap Meet- bring any gear (bikes, parts, clothing, etc.) you want to sell or come see what what hidden gems you might find


8-8:30 Check in (get your race number, swim cap, etc.)
9:00 Swim starts (Half IM, Olympic, then Sprint)
9-11:30 Race Expo & Swap Meet
11:00 Awards and door prizes


1. The lake could be a little chilly (lower 60s...maybe even the 50s), so wet suits are recommended (but NOT required)
2. We will have plenty of lifeguards, kayaks, and boats on hand, but NOT "swim angels" (they want to swim too!)
3. In order to do 1.2 miles, participants will swim both the (.3 mile) Sprint course AND the (.9 mile) Olympic course.
4. Race Expo and swap meet open to all, not just participants.
