2017 will mark the 37th year of the Topeka Tinman Triathlon, one of the longest running and historically, most popular events in the Midwest. The 2017 event will feature both short and long course triathlons. Come help us celebrate 36 years of tradition!

The 2017 event will feature both short and long course triathlons.

Event Distances:

Long Course Triathlon = 1000-Meter Swim - 19-Mile Bike - 7-Mile Run

Short Course Triathlon = 400-Meter Swim - 13-Mile Bike - 3.1-Mile Run

Course Description
SWIM: Athletes will enter from the Beach and will follow a counter clockwise pattern for the swim course keeping the buoys on their left. Swimmers in the TINMAN LONG COURSE race will swim 1000 yards. Short Course athletes will complete a 400 yard course.

BIKE: Athletes will be challenged by the rolling terrain of Southeastern Shawnee County. Athletes can expect beautiful countryside views and a tailwind on their way back into transition. No aid stations are provided on the bike course. Please plan accordingly.

RUN: Athletes will run counterclockwise around the lake on the paved running path. Aid stations will be located every mile along each of the courses. The run course is moderately flat with some slight climbs giving beautiful views of Lake Shawnee. Long Course athletes will complete one full lap around the lake. Short Course athletes will complete a 3.1 mile out/back course.

Awards will be presented to the Top Overall Male & Top Overall Female Champions in both races

Awards will be presented to the Top Three males and Top Three Females in each age group in all races.

All races will receive Finisher Medals!

If you wear it on your wrist, on your bike, in your pocket, etc., you will not be scored. Your timing chip will be removed by volunteers once you have crossed the finish line.
