RaceMaker Productions is excited for the 3rd Annual Try Tri Super and Long Sprint Triathlons at SIU Edwardsville! This beautiful campus plays a perfect host site to our Super Sprint, Long Sprint, and both our Kids and Youth races! The swim is in the SIUE Pool and we will use a time trial start allowing athletes of all abilities a nice calm start in the water. Our bike course is heavily controlled allowing you to literally lay it all out there on the bike even if you are shaking of those off-season cobwebs! Our run is on the Madison County paved trails through campus providing athletes a safe and fast run on a nice pavement.  If you are looking for an early season race-this is the one for you. You can bring the whole family, your professional tri coach, the local youth swim team,  your neighbor that can’t even ride a bike-and this race can handle it! As always RaceMaker Productions literally hooks you up with the sweetest swag item around (ZIP UP HOODIE Jacket), then adds the classy perks of custom bibs, and trophies that you’ll really want. You can’t go wrong when you sign up for the Try Tri Triathlons! Register early to save, and always watch for the Swag guarantee cutoff! See you at the start of triathlon season-April 27, 2014 @ SIUE.

Long Course swimmers will start first and swim down and back in the same lane, then cross over. Super Sprint athletes will start after all long course athletes. They will swim down in one lane, and back in the next. All swimmers will start in approximately 15 second increments; however, as we send athletes we will slow and speed up to maintain a desired distance between athletes. Prior to each event start we will line athletes up according to estimated swim time, please know your approximate time when arriving.


Special Early Registration Perk: The perks for all tri’s listed ended on 3/31/14! If you registered in time then your extra gifts will be in your race packet at the first triathlon you race in 2014!
