Intermountain Healthcare BRINEMAN 2019 Sprint, Oly, & Half.

This end of season race did not disappoint. We had such a great time! The weather was great, volunteers great, and the course is flat.

This was my 3rd time participating in the BRINEMAN. It is a great venue and the weather Saturday the 7th was incredible. A little bit overcast but the sun peaked through to keep the chill away.

Water temps were comfortable and all the start times were exact. This always impresses me with TRI UTAH. Things are so well organized and they do not miss a step. From registration to setups in transition everything flows very smoothly.

We participated in the Sprint distance. This is a 2 transition race. The swim is in a private ski lake in Syracuse UTAH. It is a smooth out and back for the Sprint swim. Hopping on the bike after the swim is easy. The bike course was very well marked and these farm roads that head west toward the great Salt Lake are pretty smooth.

The park where T2 is located is right along a path where the run portion takes place. This path is very flat and has just one road crossing for the Sprint distance. I like running the out and back. It was fun to see so many participants.

TRIUTAH allows for assisted participants in their races. It is so inspiring to see parents and friends pulling and pushing children with disabilities through the course. This makes the whole racing experience more meaningful.

The Finish area with the podium and canopies setup is on a big grassy section of the park. The pictures on the podium were awesome with all the overall leaders and age group winners.

I love this picture of my 14 year old son running to the finish.
