Water Quality Update:
We have been working with the City and State to ensure that our swim location is safe for all participants. The Departmant of Environmental Quality (DEQ) sampled and tested Parkcenter Pond, Quinn's Pond, and the Boise Whitewater Park on 7/30/2013. Here are the results in MPN/100mL - the maximum safe number is 235 and all locations are well below this.

What is this? This is where your bike is standing while you’re swimming, and where you put your bike before you start running. The Swim-to-Bike transition area will be located in the Parkcenter Pond parking area. Bike-to-Run transition will be located at the BSU Yanke Research Center, 220 E. Parkcenter Blvd. Splits (your time in each leg) will be taken at both transition areas.
*Please clearly label your gear with your name or race number. You may have a friend or family person pick up gear from the swim transition area but they must have a transition pass. People will not be permitted into the transition area without a pass. We will be monitoring the area and checking for passes. Transition passes will be issued at packet pick up.
The race will finish in the BSU Yanke Research Center, 220 E. Parkcenter Blvd. parking lot. Be sure to pick up your bike after you finish your race, as well as any belongings you may have left at the swim area. If someone else will be picking up your belongings, please fill out the transition pass you will receive in your packet.
